This picture really illustrates what I love about buying from the farmers market. Peter's Pumpkins was selling some beautiful baskets of mixed peppers & Matt asked for one that was mostly poblanos for fajitas. Peter invited him behind his booth & helped him pick out the best selections to make exactly what we wanted. Peter is one of those great vendors who just loves to talk to you about his produce & what's coming up from the farm in the next couple of weeks. This week he even had pumpkin blossoms, which he offered with a recipe for frying them. I really wanted to try them but knew I wouldn't get to them in time. Maybe he'll have more next week.
Boy, did we fill our bags this week! We hadn't been to the market in two weeks so our fridge was looking really empty.
Fennel - I think I'll grill these up as a side dish.
Cantaloupe - We ate most of this as a breakfast treat yesterday.
Cabbage - This became a salad with the carrots & a blue cheese dressing
Carrots - I find a like a carrot of two with my lunch every day
Onions - Used a bunch in fajitas yesterday & some will go in gazpacho & salsa
LoveTree Sheep's Milk Cheese - A perfect appetizer on crackers yesterday
Mixed Peppers - Most were used in fajitas & more will go into the gazpacho & salsa
Brussels Sprouts - Was hoping to roast these as a side dish this week if the oven gets fixed...
Tomatillos - We'll be making salsa with these
We also got a lot of sweet corn which mostly eaten with BBQed chicken Sunday night. I think I'll use the rest in sweet corn waffles.
Menu Planning Monday...ok, Tuesday
While making breakfast yesterday all the electrical blew on our stove & oven. It's gas so I can still use the stove but not the oven. Guess I need to plan around that since a repair person can't come until Monday!
Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho
Grilled Salmon & Vegetables
Thursday we are going to see Wicked & going to have dinner at Om in downtown Mpls beforehand
Chicken over Sweet Corn Waffles - a riff on the amazing chicken & waffles I had at Corner Table last Friday
