From Alejandra Owens at One Bite At A Time
Last call for turkeys! Well, if you want a Truck Patch turkey at least.
The 14th and U Street Farmers Market’s last weekend will be November 20th so this weekend is your last chance to order up your turkey.
And if you don’t want to worry about dessert, tomorrow would also be the time to put in orders for pumpkin whoopie pies, pumpkin pies, apple pies, her new spiced cake pumpkin rolls, sweet breads, etc., from Pecan Meadow.
The Dupont Farmers market is bringing you oysters and clams from Buster’s Seafood — I’m on a mussels kick right now, myself, but I’ll buy some clams and make this linguine.
For you exotic meat eaters, there will be duck and rabbit available from Garden Path Farm. And Next Step Produce has kiwi and persimmons (which is a word I can never pronounce correctly… is that just me?). And don’t forget brussel sprouts! I love that they come on those big, thick stalks and you can cut them off individually. And then pan fry them in bacon fat. How else would you eat them!?

#turkeytalk on Twitter
This is yours truly’s first Thanksgiving as a blogger, so we’ll see what I come up with! If you’re on Twitter and need ideas or help, use the hashtag #turkeytalk… I hosted a chat the other night and not only did we come up with some great ideas but there’s now a community of folks using the tag to exchange tips, tricks and recipes.
