  1. Pati,
    I love to watch your shows.

    Just curious, when I saw this program the other day, I wrote down the tequila mamufacturer that you visited, and now cannot find the note. I was going to buy a bottle for a friend’s birthday.

  2. Pati: saw your comments on this episode about produce managers being hard to get to know. Since you’re near DC, it made me think of the Eastern Market. While there are farmers on Saturday, T-S there are 2 excellent vegetable stands, one run by the Calimieras Family and one by the Soles Family. They will compete for your business. I wanted to make an avocado mousse for a Christmas party and Mr. Soles found and held onto 7 ripe avocados for me in December. Lovely people!!

  3. My husband and I tried this earlier in the week with dinner. It was just delicious. And we were able to make a kid-friendly version as well! 🙂
