Better find your car keys

You’re gonna want to visit DC just for this. Yesterday we hit the jackpot at the Columbia Heights farmer’s market. From cherry tomatoes so sweet you can eat them like candy, to blackberries that look too good to be true (and taste even better), to rainbow chard for only $2…

But then. There were bison burgers. Call it a game changer. We’re already acquainted with the unparalleled and off-the-beaten-path deliciousness of bison from one of our favorite happy hours at Vinoteca. There they serve incredible sliders, in addition to crostini, olives, etc to pair with their $5 wines. So we knew we wanted to try it sometime. When we found local bison meat from Maryland at the market, we couldn’t say no.

So today, while watching the Women’s World Cup and enjoying some Sam Adams Summer Ale (can’t resist since our trip to the Boston brewery), we grilled to-die-for bison burgers. We topped them with flame-grilled onions and mushrooms and extra sharp Vermont white cheddar cheese. I still can’t believe I cooked this!
