Grand Finale Night on the Neck

Photos by E.J.

A few shots from our Grand Finale Night on the Neck on Madfish Wharf.  Bird Mancini was in rare form and definitely lively-ed up the place.  T Max stopped by and joined in for a piece with his old Urban Caravan buddies.  It was a beautiful evening, although you could feel the nip of fall in the air.  Everyone had a good time, even the dogs, and Isla served up a heap of dark and stormies.

What’s New in Jenna’s Garden – Week 11

By Jenna Howard

"The Burnham’s Field Community Garden survived Hurricane Irene but not without some damage. It seems that most gardens, including mine, had damage to their tomato plants. The extremely heavy winds blew my tomatoes over and caused the stakes to pop out of the ground. I was lucky that I was able to get my plants standing again. But I did lose lots of ripe tomatoes, which I found on the ground around the garden, unfortunately. I’ve included photos of some of the damage done to other’s gardens. Looks like everyone has some repair work to do this week!"

Ingredients:
½ ripe Bartlett Pear diced into ½ inch pieces
¼ cup thinly sliced   Vidalia onion
2 tablespoon of sweet butter1 ½ tablespoons light brown sugar
½ teaspoon cider vinegar
½ cup baby arugula
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
¼ cup crumbled goat cheese
2 thin sliced prosciutto torn into bite size pieces
Balsamic glaze for drizzling

Step 1: using a paring knife, thinly slice onion

image

Step 2: Cut pear in half-length wise and remove

image

Step 3: Remove core

image

Step 4:  to dice pear into bite size pieces , first Slice pear horizontally then vertically

image

Step 5: Melt butter in small fry pan

image

Step 6: add onions and sauté over medium high heat for 5- min. 

image

Step 7: continue cooking over medium high heat until onions start to turn golden brown

image

Step 8: add diced pears

image

Step 9: continue cooking over medium high heat for 3-4 min or until pears start to soften, but are not mushy

image

Step 10: turn heat to low and stir in brown sugar

image

Step 11:  Add cider vinegar and deglaze the goodness stuck on the bottom of the pan 

Step 12: remove pan from heat and let mixture rest for 2-3 min

* Note:  Have will Power! Mixture will  look good enough to eat with a spoon…

image

image

Step 14: Top with blue cheese and goat cheese

image

Step 15:  carefully transfer flatbread to a pre-heated pizza stone, in a pre-heated 400 degree oven 

image

*I’ve baked this flatbread 2 different ways.  First by adding arugula & prosciutto before baking, as seen in this photo and  the second time and every other time therefore after, baking it first then adding the arugula and prosciutto. I have to say I definitely prefer adding it after. Try it both ways see which way you and your family prefer!

Step 16: Bake 5-7 minutes then carefully remove flatbread pizza by sliding it onto a large cutting board

image

*Note this is what your flatbread will look like if you bake it without the arugula and prosciutto

Step 17:  Scatter baby arugula and torn pieces of prosciutto over the top

image

Step 18: Drizzle balsamic glaze over the top
Enjoy!
