Strawberries and Asparagus Matter

If you've stepped foot inside a grocery store or through a farmers market recently, you probably know that it's asparagus and strawberry season. In celebrating of the season, Alexandria's Food Matters is having two days worth of events, kicked off with a family style dinner in honor of those wonderful green veggies tomorrow night for only $45.

For that price you'll get the following: Hors D'oeuvres, Asparagus Tempura, Grilled Asparagus with Herbed Aioli, Asparagus and Potato Frittata, Asparagus and Carrot Salad with Dill Vinaigrette and Baby Greens, Creamy Asparagus Soup with Grilled Amberjack Garlic Croutons, Roast Lamb with Asparagus Puree, Royal Trumpet Mushroom and Soy Saute served with Steamed Rice, and all topped off with Vanilla Pudding with Local Strawberries and Almond Cookies.

And if that's not enough for you, you can come back the next day for their Strawberry festival!

Aside from strawberry and whipped cream pancakes for brunch, you can get a variety of strawberry alcoholic drinks and of course, loads of fresh strawberries.
