and have a great Easter Weekend! Here are some great photos that were shared by readers!
Alan shared with me this photo on Mark Parker facebook page. It is a great photo of Old Town Helena that Mark made. It reminds me of something but I can't place it but it is great.Masters
Mark Huffman of Helena is in Augusta, Ga for the Masters Golf tournament and was featured in a Tiger Woods photo. You can see him with the golf ball hovering above his head. This is a photo he will show his grand children!
When I travel to visit relatives, I am always assigned to bring the Milo Tea (and sister rolls). So I was checking out recipes online and I saw the What's Cooking America website has Juanita Daniels of Helena, AL as their Sweet Tea recipe. Yes, Helena's has the official America's Sweet Tea.
Helena Market Days
Helena's Farmer Market will be kicking off in June so the schedule is starting to come together. We will have a Boston Butt BBQ cook off this year so if you would like to be compete for the title of best butt in Helena then email me at email@example.com. It would be great to have a bunch of people completing. I'm trying to think of a name other than the Best Butt in Helena 2012 so if you can think of something... The crowd will help decide who has the best so get ahold of me so we can make this happen. Mary Perko is doing an awesome job getting guest chefs and here are some of the events we have so far:
06/16: La Dolce Vita - Ben Tamburello
07/07: Echelon Catering - Gray Byrum
07/14: Tomato Sandwich Day
