The Fourth Annual Festival of Meats.

4th Annual Festival of Meats

I’m really looking forward to the 4th Annual Festival of Meats (my third) this Saturday, hosted by the Albany Society for the Advancement of Philanthropy! If you’re not familiar with this event, informally known as ‘Meat Fest’, here’s the low down: ASAP members set up all sorts of meaty offerings at the Elks Club in Albany. A $25 donation gets you in, and from there it’s all you can eat until it’s gone. This year I’ve heard whisperings of steak, pulled pork, clams, suckling pig… and my fellow ASAP ladies and I will be putting on a delicious mashed potato bar to partner with the meaty feast.

In addition, ASAP will be raffling off a $250 gift certificate to Rolf’s Pork Store in Albany, a $150 gift certificate to Falvo’s Meat Market in Slingerlands, and a $100 gift certificate to The Meat House. Protein overload!

I’ve had a great time as a member of ASAP, an organization made up of people who want to encourage everybody to give a little back to the local community, and have fun doing it.  If that sounds like a good time to you, stop by a meeting sometime to meet the members and see what it’s all about.

    […] Saturday’s Meat Fest was my first foray into making a large quantity of mashed potatoes that would be held for a while. I found a few tips and tricks online, and they all worked smashingly! Pun not intended! I might devote a post to making mashed potatoes, with fall and (gulp) Thanksgiving on the far horizon. […]
