In my ongoing quest to do book signings in places that have food, I have jumped on the chance to participate in the Local Authors Book Faire @ the State Street Farmers Market in Bristol.
An interesting thing about State Street in Bristol is that it it crosses both Tennessee and Virginia. I am not sure which side the State Street Farmers Market is on, but I know it will be a blast either way!
This event begins at 7:00a.m. and lasts until 11:00a.m. As soon as I arrive and get set up I'll be seeing the lady who sells hot biscuits and coffee. Hopefuly, during the time I am there, I will have the chance to check out all of the fresh produce. I'm picturing big bushel baskets of green beans and little green baskets filled with bright, sweet strawberries!
Here is a good recipe I made last week that highlights fresh fruits and berries:
Mix a package of sugar cookie mix according to directions.
Spread sugar cookie dough to cover a rectangular pan or roll out on a pizza pan.
Bake dough according to package directions.
Beat an 8 oz. block of softened cream cheese with 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled cookie.
Lay any combination of fresh fruit and berries on top of cream cheese. (I squeeze a little lemon juice over fruits that tend to turn brown.)
