Weekly Menu and Farmers Market Finds 6/17 - 6/22/12

It is amazing how quickly the farmers market has gone from just a few spring greens and rhubarb to a huge array of summer vegetables. We are always tempted to buy everything, especially the stuff we haven't had since last summer, but we have to remember what two of us can really eat in a week. Here's what we brought home this week..
Farmers Market Finds 6/17/12
Green Beans - This week's they'll just be sides but I want to make some spicy dilly beans soon.
More Strawberries - This batch is mainly for snacking
French Breakfast Radishes - These have been so wonderful raw and cooked. Apparently next week we'll get a new variety that is also quite mild.
Tomatoes - These need a little more ripening, but for this early in the season it's amazing to get them at all.
Bacon and Regular Brats
Zucchini - First of the year. We like to grill these up.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Green scrambled eggs with toast and cottage bacon - The eggs are green thanks to Garlic Scape Pesto.

Grilled steak with potatoes and broccoli - A hold over from last week.

Pizzeria Lola - We have friends coming in from out of town who want to see what all the buzz is about.

Chicken and Avocado Tacos - The 3 1/2 year old we have visiting loves avocado, so she is inspiring theses.

I think this is the best time of the year for foodies who live in cold weathers. I miss the anticipation of getting all the spring and summer produce at the local market. Now I just have to deal with the year long fresh produce that a tropical country has. Oh the suffering!

We are doing a CSA this year. So far I am really enjoying it. Such nice produce and so fresh.
