July Green Drinks

Hello Summer! It's July and we're less than a week from the next Green Drinks. We're meeting at Elote once again. It's hot outside. Libby has mojitos and margaritas to help your cool your heels while you mingle with your fellow colleagues, artists, teachers, students, volunteers, TYPros, neighbors, friends.....you get my drift. All are welcome to join us at 5:30 on July 8th at 514 S Boston in Downtown Tulsa.

On another note, I wanted to share some pictures from my one of my favorite activities during Local Foods Week which was June 14-21st. (If you missed out, no worries, there's still plenty of fun stuff going on throughout 2009) My mother, aunt, and I visited The Living Kitchen in Bristow for a Farm to Table Dinner (and it was my birthday - what a treat). Lisa Becklund, a Seattle native, owns this 7 acre farm where they raise goats, chickens, a llama, and lots and lots of veggies. You can find her or Kasey at the Cherry Street Farmers Market on Saturdays where you can purchase a variety of delicious goat cheeses and produce. You could also enjoy one of their fabulous (really - fabulous!!!) dinners on the farm. 30 minutes outside of Tulsa you will get a tour, drinks and a four course dinner. At the close of our dinner, excuse me - fabulous dinner, Lisa shared with us that the only ingredients which were not from her farm or her neighbors farms were the salt, olive oil, and coffee!!

July's dinners feature lavender from Clear Creek Lavender Farm. There are only 4 of them, and last time I checked they were filling up fast! Check out their site at http://livingkitchen.homestead.com/index.html
