The Mill City Market has a great location along the Mississippi between the Mill City Museum & the Guthrie Theater. People were out in force celebrating the warm sunny weather after a week of cold rainy days.
Here's what we picked up this week...
Little Rhubarb Pies - The perfect size for two. So tart & tasty.
Spring Lettuce - I love how delicate the leaf lettuce is in the spring. We ate this all in one big salad
Spring Onions - We grilled one bunch of these with some potatoes Sunday night. The remaining bunch will get used in a morel tart & in a soufflé.
Morels - Oh, they are dear at $45 a pound but such a treat. We'll have some in pasta tonight & some in a tart later in the week.
Ramps - Freshly picked the day before. I'll use some of these leeks in the pasta with the morels & some in scrambled eggs.
I also got this bag of wild rice flour. It made to be used for breading or thickening soups & stews. I want to experiment with using it in bread. I think it should add a wonderful nutty flavor. We also picked up some pork chops (we've actually eaten through all the one's from our pig purchase!) & 4 lbs of wild Alaskan salmon. I had hoped to get strawberries & asparagus but maybe next week.
On to Menu Planning Monday....
Pasta with Ramps & Morels
Grilled Salmon with Spicy Asian Glaze
Morel & Onion Tarts
Still deciding on the rest of the week...
