A single-source supper evening

The recipe couldn't fail to entice me: 

1) Take great vegetables and meats from a single local source, Eco Farm.
2) From that fine beginning, have Chef Aaron Vandemark of Panciuto, perhaps my favorite local restaurant, create a complete meal.

2) Add a focus on and free book from the fine folks at Daylight

3) Serve outside, with live music, under twinkle lights and, as the evening wore on, the stars. 

4) Top with a showing of short documentaries from various photographers whose work Daylight has produced. 
This single-source supper looked like a sure-fire bet, and it was. 

The menu was amazing:
* warm corn soup with salted whipped cream and caramel popcorn (trust me, it works)
* salad of greens and Aaron's homemade dressing
* farfalle pasta and fried green tomato salad
* pulled pork sliders with cucumber pickles
* squash and cornbread casserole
* Aaron's homemade sausage
* succotash salad
* chocolate pie

You can see all of those on my plate.

The copy of the most recent issue of Daylight was lovely and worthy of continued contemplation.

That's how almost a dozen of us spent our evening. 

I can't wait for the next one.
