Hey everyone! I'm back with a fabulous recipe today!

It's been a busy few weeks and I haven't been able to post regularly due to that busy schedule, but I'm making up for it with today's recipe!

Common Ground "Field to Fork" Farm Dinner at Thalmann Family Farm in Plato, MN

Awhile back, I received an invite in my inbox for a farm dinner. I thought it sounded like a fun event and even though it was an hour and a half drive from my house it seemed worth the drive for a fun experience!

Common Ground Minnesota and Thalmann Family Farm were our hosts for the evening!




Common Ground is a group of Minnesota farm women who talk about all things farming and food. They share their personal experiences about conventional and organic crops, livestock and produce.
