Today we decided to go to a garden to take pictures. We were going to make Vietnamese crepes and rose lemonade. We started off the day going to the garden. This was amazing to take pictures at. There was great lighting and bright plants. We got a couple of things for our cooking, and then we were on our way to the farmers market. We ended up with carrots, radishes, onions, mild pepper, and a very hot pepper. We started cooking by making the batter for the pancakes. We had to let this sit, so we cut up all the vegetables for the inside of the crepes. I had quite a lot of fun arranging and taking pictures of the vegetables.

After this we started on the lemonade. This was pretty easy, because our lemon was already juiced. We added sparkling water, grated ginger, rose water, and honey.DSC_6568DSC_6571

 

This lemonade was amazing, but I don’t think I did that well on the pictures. After this it was back to the crepes. The pancakes were pretty fun to cook, but were a bit fragile. When they were done, they were fun to photograph.

They also tasted amazing, and the little spicy surprises were fun. After this, I had a lot of cool pictures to edit and then I had to go, with my stomach full.

 

Note from Elizabeth: I think Sarah’s photos of the lemonade came out gorgeous! And it tasted sooooo refreshing! The garden we visited was Brie Arthur’s edible garden in Fuquay! She writes and travels to talk and teach about planting edible landscapes and sustainable landscaping.  She speaks internationally on a variety of horticulture topics and is a correspondent on the PBS television show Growing A Greener World

We were super excited to visit and photograph her lovely gardens and hang out with the sweet garden cats!!

Along with using a few things from Brie’s garden in our crepes, we made pretty ice cubes with flower petals from her garden! They weren’t frozen by the time Sarah went home, but here is a photo as well as a few of her in action!
