Spice of Life Catering Plated Landscape Dinner + Weekend fun

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Congrats to Kelly Ann Higgins for winning the Bethenny: Calling All My Girls Swag bag!

Oh hey there!

I'm so behind in my posting, guys. Blame it on my travel schedule, stress, failed house hunting and the realization that I'm about to put all of my worldly belongings into a storage facility and move into CK's small apartment.

Deep breath. Time to give a blogger a break. Le sigh.

I have still had some time for fun though, like attending the Spice of Life Catering / Spice Kitchen + Bar Plated Landscape Dinner at the Ohio City Farm.

If you've been following along on the plum you know I'm a huge fan of all things Spice for some time now, but this was my first time attending one of their famous Plated Landscapes where a farm-to-table dining experience among nature and a sunset with expertly paired wine and a five-course meal is the norm. Yes, it was as amazing as it sounds.

The entrance to the OHC Farm, the urban farmstead where you can find almost everything growing, even some of GLBC's hops + the talents chefs in their element

My delicious starter cocktail and the gorgeous table that greeted us, talk about a unique dining experience!

When the cityscape and the urban farm combines + Jess and Ryan + JoeG, CK and I

The food, OH THE FOOD! I love how you can tell how the sun went down as the event carried on from my pictures.... Coriander Tuna Tataki + Mixed Green Salad w/ beets, goat cheese, shaved onions and sherry vinaigrette + Ohio City Gazpacho + Grilled Beef Tenderloin w/ potato and leek salad and chimichurri + Peach & Cream Pot du Creme w/ a sugar cookie

With a trip to Nano Brew post dinner with a full stomach, the evening was complete and perfection and I can't wait to attend another one next year. The remaining Spice of Life Catering Plated Landscape Dinners are sold out for the year but be sure to sign up for their newsletter to get alerted when next year's schedule is announced.

The remainder of the weekend (which is two weekends ago now) was spent couch touring Phish @ Dick's with CK at home, a Saturday fun day and family time at Cleveland's Oktoberfest. Good times all around. 

A Happy Dog (my way) and tots + couch tour + my manly Makers Mark and CK's girlie Summer Shandy + Beaver and CK being awesome + CAK hands in at SOHO Kitchen & Bar

Next up is recapping #deerynycbach.... Oh lord, that could take awhile to contain the awesomeness.

Happy Wednesday, kids.
