It was so nice to get back to the Kingfield Farmers Market this weekend. This is such an amazing time to buy at the markets with the last of the summer crops still available & the best of the fall crops just starting to come in. Here's what we picked up for the next two weeks.
Carnival Squash - We discovered this little squash two years ago & love it. They are the perfect size for me to cook one up as a side dish for the two of us.
Sun Street Beer Bread - Made with Lift Bridge Farm Girl Saison. Looking forward to having thick slices of this with leftover chili for lunch.
Carrots - For curry & as a side with lunch
Butternut Squash - Haven't decided what I'll use this in yet but I couldn't resist the first one of the season.
Leeks - Also not sure what I'll use these in yet but I like having leeks around just like having onions on hand.
Parsnips - These will probably go into a stew as well as get roasted for side dishes.
Roma Tomatoes - I'll be cooking these down to a sauce today.
Onions & Garlic - Just the pantry staples
Brussels Sprouts - These will get roasted as a side dish this week
Sweet Potatoes - Peter at Peter's Pumpkins told me that MN doesn't have the best soil for growing sweet potatoes so I was glad to find one vendor selling them. These are a mixture of both the yellow & white fleshed varieties. I'll use some in curry & the rest just roast as a side or perhaps in stew.
The market only has a couple more weeks before closing for the season so we'll be stocking up on things like squash & garlic to keep us through the winter.
On to Menu Planning Monday...
Farro with Italian Sausage, Chard & Tomatoes
Vegetable Curry Pot Pie
Then we are heading up north to enjoy some of the fall color so I'll probably whip up a big pot of beef stew to take along with us.
