Blooming Botanical Adventure

June 21, 2011

I’ve decided to create a new weekly post entitled, Things I Eat.  It’s my way of giving credit to my culinary caretakers, aka the people and places that make my foodie heart skip a beat.  They may not be extravagant.  Sometimes, they may be very simple.  It’s just the food that makes me joyful.


Jonathan and I visited the Brooklyn Botanical Garden last weekend.  After a little stroll through the garden, rain pushed us toward the Terrace Café (also outdoors, but under patio umbrellas).  We expected a simple order of green beans with our sandwich, but were pleasantly surprised by the added touch of pansies on the plate.
