This is our favorite baker from Praline Bakery in Bethesda, MD. Her baby just sleeps or hangs out while she sells the most delicious selection of yummies. I always try to get her breakfast croissants or the beautiful apple tart, but if you don't get there early, there are slim pickings. Today we were late because I went for a run and watered the garden first, so that dictated what we were able to have for breakfast. I undid the 300 calories I'd burned the moment I saw (and asked for, drooling...) the moist and spongy chocolate pound cake. My husband picked up a few of his favorite, the lemon drop cookies - sort of lemon Madelaine-like, lightly iced cookies. Older daughter particularly loves this booth, but it is her loss today as she's at a sleepover.
Here, my younger daughter at her favorite booth. There are two booths run by Amish families. They travel about 2.5 hours or so to get here faithfully every weekend. Lyric loves the peach lemonade and trying samples of homemade cheese. One of the families used to sell an amazing herb cheese, but they stopped making it. They do now sell homemade yogurt, which is a treat we'll need to try next time.
In the past couple of years, this family began selling freshly grilled (Can you imagine what an amazing sight and smell?) hamburgers and sausages. There's quite a line forming.
I do have other new favorites. There is a new artisan sausage vendor who makes amazing spicy tasso, and I LOVE their prosciutto biscuits. I usually buy a bag and make a Southern gravy to eat them with. The prosciutto I used in last week's GTTC sandwiches were also from this booth.
