Eating at the Argenta Fall Foodie Festival

17 Oct

For lunch, I had the beefalo chili from Maddie’s Place and greens from Walker’s. This is the chili we’ve been smelling all morning, and it was fabulous! The meat was tender and flavorful, and the beans still had substance to them. Not too spicy, but plenty of flavor.

I was told the greens at Walker’s started cooking yesterday, with ham hocks. You can definitely taste the extra time and attention put into them. I love greens, but the hubs doesn’t, so I have to get them when I go out. Now I’m spoiled!

I had to wait a while for dessert after eating so much! I decided on the Sticky Toffee Pumpkin Pudding from Simply the Best Catering. I was afraid it would be heavy, but it was very light and satisfying after eating so much. The toffee sauce was not cloyingly sweet, but just enough to balance the pumpkin flavor.

See my Twitter updates on the right hand side of the page for photos of what I had. (Don’t have all the software updates on my new laptop to transfer them easily…)

And if you’re not here yet, get here quick! You have an hour and a half!

    Thanks for checking out my blog, and thanks for posting about the Argenta Food Fest. I really wanted to go, but after running the Race for the Cure, I was tired and so were the kids, so we headed home. Now that I’ve read your posts, I’m REALLY bummed I didn’t get to go. Maybe next time.

      Word on the street is, they want to do one for every season’s harvest. So hopefully you’ll get another chance in the spring!
