Hi, boys and girls.
If you live in Washington DC area, I would like to encourage you to go to the National Capital BBQ Battle this weekend! I know the weather is going to be incredibly hot, but this is a fun event (and raises money for a great cause)! I went to this event 4 years ago and this year was invited to attend as "media" and can take 5 of my friends for free!!! I'll post pictures from the event next week.
From the news release: Over 50 teams from all over the US are competing for $40,000 at the National Barbecue Championship. We have already raised one million dollars over the years for the DC Boys and Girls' clubs, and we're starting on our second million. We've got lots of food, lots of music, and lots of kids activities.
In other news, please check out my recipe in DC Examiner for Beet Greens with Prosciutto.
And finally, I'm now going to be freelancing for Robyn Webb's blog, You Can Eat That. So far, I've written two posts, and will post one new article once a week. This is my new adventure with Robyn: I have been her recipe tester for the last 2-3 years: time flies.
