Oh yum! I love the idea of sneaking eggplant in. Fresh ricotta is the best. Blue Ridge's is good, but you've got to try Keswick's. It's even creamier. They used to carry it at Cheesetique but apparently I was the only one buying it, so I don't get it often enough now.

That looks like the enormous Sangria melon we saw at a So.Md. farmstand last weekend - I was intrigued by the name, but settled for a smaller variety. We still have some in the fridge, a week later, so perhaps a watermelon colada is in order! Looks delish. :)

Interesting idea! I would much prefer to buy local than the frozen organic veggies that are from China... (in the case of Trader Joe's at least). I'm sure there are plenty of people with small freezers who can't store enough ourselves.

I didn't make it to P&P. Did you go? Would love to hear how it was. I just posted Oyamel's goat cheese stuffed squash blossom recipe. We didn't get to eat at the restaurant (sick hubby) but the samples at the market were quite yummy.

I was always squeamish about cooking crabs myself until I found out the softshells at Dupont were no longer living, and pre-cleaned. It still momentarily creeped me out to throw the cute little guys in the frying pan. But they're just so tasty!

I bought some of their red, white & blue potatoes for the fourth - so fun to see where they came from!

What a fun post. I've never been to Michigan but you make it sound delicious. :)

Oh, how funny about the "Virginia" olive oil. Good to hear there are still some local vendors at Eastern Market. I've been wanting to try cooking squash blossoms since having one at Mio, stuffed with baccala (salted cod - sounds strange, but it was so good!). Yours look delicious!

My husband would call that a perfect market meal as well! Can't wait to see what you do with the kohlrabi. I've always been intrigued by it but have yet to try cooking one.

That looks delicious! Westmoreland Berry Farm at Alexandria's West End market had raspberries yesterday - red and black, plus strawberries, blueberries, cherries and blackberries. Too many to choose from!

Thanks for the kick in the pants to donate to PBS! I grew up on PBS. My parents lived on a mountain and couldn't have gotten cable even if they could have afforded it (they still don't have it), and we were only allowed to watch PBS as kids. Even now, aside from the cursed Thomas, we only allow our toddler to watch PBS or Sprout. And I've recently realized how nice their food programs are, without the flash and over-the-top "celebrities" of the Food Network. (Ok, so maybe I'm a little infatuated with Jose Andres...)

I would be interested to hear from any parents have their kids enrolled in a year-round school, if arranging child care during breaks is really any easier? We have the option at our local Alexandria public school, but I'm not convinced it wouldn't be harder to find someone for short breaks several times a year, vs. a college student looking for a summer job. I also have a strong objection to being in school in August, as that's my and my kid's birthday month (selfish reason I know), and the best time for me to take off work.
