I’m just going to come right out and say it…
I had a great weekend.
It began Friday night, spending a beautiful evening with friends at a local vineyard. Our favorite band was playing, and the wine was flowing as easily as the laughter. That would’ve been more than enough for me, but it got even better as I got to experience my first ‘Outstanding in the Field’ dinner on Saturday night.
About a year ago, I came across a post on Facebook that mentioned a dinner and something called, ‘Outstanding in the Field’. Being curious, I did a search and came across their website. Browsing through the photo gallery I was in awe of the beautiful setting where they held dinners as they toured across the farmers, orchards and nurseries of North America. Then, reading about their mission, to share the beauty of food and honor the farmers that grow it…helping people to make the connection of where their food comes from…well, I was hooked. Unfortunately, I had missed the dinner not too far from our home, and often they do not stop in the same place twice.
Little did I know, that after the success and raves of last year’s dinner that they would make an exception and return to Nebraska!
