Picnic in the Park

The Frankenstones (newly engaged!) invited me to picnic in Washington Square on Sunday. We made a pitstop at one of my favorite places, Reading Terminal. If only I lived a little closer and they had later hours. I'd heard about the fair food farmstand, but never been. I figured it would be the perfect place to pick up some fruit and cheese, while (future) Mrs. Frankenstone picked out some cookies. The staff was very friendly and happy to let me take some pictures. They suggested a delicious pepper jack, and of course what I was most curious about: Vrapple. Yes it's exactly what you'd think it is. Vegan scrapple and probably an oxymoron. Unfortunately I didn't want to bring it and let it sit out in the heat. I did pick up a 15% off coupon for Sam Slagheap.

With food and drinks in hand we found a nice shady spot.

Our spread included: zucchini bread, hummus, salad, apples, cheese, cookies, Mr. Frankenstone's chicken wrap and pickle suprise. He also provided some delicious refreshments. Perhaps he will be kind enough to share the recipe with us. Uncle giggles also joined us and it was the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Too bad the Frankenstone's are moving soon...

  1. I'm only the least healthy person ever...I go to the terminal market for the hot dog shop that has the best onion rings ever.

    (and the Amish ice cream shop where I once got into an argument with the young Amish girl working there. She gave me Pumpkin ice cream instead of coffee and refused to believe it wasn't coffee, even when I asked her to taste it.)
