Beer and Boar!

I’ve been basically on my feet since 8 am helping at Beer and Boar at Alley Kat today, beginning with a little setting up and even spending time in the kitchen prepping salads and being a nice hostess. The Slow Food people are super-nice, and are understandably concerned about everyone having great food and a good time, and it was fun to be part of that. Here is the story, in pictures:

My plate! Four salads: green (from Greens Eggs and Ham) with vinaigrette, cucumber (yogurt/herb), tomato (herb vinaigrette), and coleslaw. Boar with amazing mustard (I have to ask where they got it. So good!)
