Farmers Market Finds and the Weekly Menu 8/2 - 7/7/10

We were out of town again this weekend so missed our farmers market for a second week in a row (drives me crazy 'cuz I know I'm missing some good stuff). I did run out to the Excelsior Farmers Market on Thursday though to pick up the salmon we'd ordered earlier in the year from WIld Run Salmon. We pre-ordered 20 pounds of wild Alaskan salmon earlier this summer then Matt & his kids headed up to Alaska to catch it for us.

They clean & freeze the salmon immediately on the boat. When we picked it at the market it was cut into about 1 pound fillets, vacuum sealed & in a reusable insulated bag.
20 pounds of Alaskan Salmon
The best part we can bring the bag back the rest of the season & fill it with more beautiful salmon at a price that is much better than what the stores are charging. If you are in the Twin Cities area you can buy WIld Run Salmon at Excelsior, Kingfield, Mill City, Minneapolis & White Bear farmers markets.

Somehow its ended up really being a pizza week.....

Sloppy Joes & Homemade Baked Beans - Using up some leftovers from our weekend at camp.

Fajitas - The poblanos in our garden are ready to be used!

Thursday we'll be heading out to LoveTree Farmstead from some Wood Fired Pizza using their sheep cheese with Cookin' Minnesota.

Some sort of grilled chicken, I'm thinking of a basil lemon flavor

Saturday we're having a family bbq & are thinking of doing grilled make your own pizzas.
