Last week I had the opportunity to present a food demo at the Floral & Hardy Garden Center in Skippack Village, a quaint town whose main strip hosts assorted attractive businesses and serves thousands at their ongoing seasonal festivals.
Here is a photo of some of our attendees taken by Chris Sinotte the evening’s superstar coordinator and marketing leader! In addition to my longtime friend Karen pictured in the center who attended with a few of the Chestnut Hill Garden Club members, we also enjoyed the company of individuals from the Norristown Garden Club, and the Reading Pennsylvania Heartland Herb Society.
The theme of the evening cooking event was ‘using up the end of summer garden veggies and herbs.’ It was quite a wonderful time and I must mention the crowd included a bunch of all super nice and engagingly fun- interactive women from throughout the area (along with 10-year-old Gaby.) Gaby who loves cooking arrived in a Mother-Daughter night out and was quickly enlisted as the evening assistant. I think everyone would agree she did a very good job!
Our evening appetizer preparation included that vegetable we annually seem to have the greatest abundance of at summers end, zucchini. Everyone loved the Zucchini Cheese Bites so I wanted to share them with you today. Serve them alone or with a bit of ranch dip, either way, they are quite tasty to enjoy while using up your end of summer abundance.
