SF Outsidelands is an amazing weekend of music, art, food, and drink. We ate a lot, drank a bit, and listened to a ton of music…all in all, a great weekend filled with many of my favorite things. I am writing about the food primarily as a note to self on things I’d love to figure out how to male.
Because I am a bad (read: noob) blogger, I forgot to take food pictures on Friday. Our food lineup included fried mac n’ cheese sticks and a black bean and plantain burrito (note to self: learn to make at home). Also, garlic fries. As you can see, we were ultra-healthy. Saturday was an OSL-free day because we were out at an 80th birthday picnic for my grandpa and then a wedding for a close family friend (said wedding had actually the best food I’ve ever eaten at a wedding). But back to OSL.
We started Sunday off with a double batch of my standard smoothie (recipe to follow eventually). The delicious cast of characters starts with a combo of carrot juice and coconut water, and then a bunch of spinach, mint, ginger, frozen berries and mangoes. Since I didn’t have my standard banana I used a nectarine. Delicious. And full of goodness (that we definitely needed considering our long day ahead).
From there, I decided to ditch the healthy stuff and opted for “The Works” from Farmerbrown’s booth. Amazing. Fried chicken, a waffle, mac n’ cheese, and cornbread. Because I am a strong believer in TREAT YO SELF. My sister opted for some sort of veggie wrap that looked delicious but I guess I didn’t consider it photo-worthy (my b).
We washed those down with two of our beeritos, an almost foolproof way to get a few beers into a music festival. My friend Julia first introduced them to me, and I am forever grateful. Yay reasonably priced beer!
After more music, more dancing, more running around…dinner time rolled around. Sister opted for a bomb grilled cheese with farm egg from American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, while I went for Pica Pica‘s “maizewich” (much like a Colombian arepa, but a bit sweeter) with pulled pork. Definitely amazeballs.
Overall, it was an awesome and delicious weekend. Definitely got my brain churning with new ideas of what to make (on the list—more latin food, I forgot how much I love yucca and plantains)!
Did I mention we got to see STEVIE WONDER?????
