Weekly Menu 5/23 - 5/28/11

What a crazy weekend here in Minnesota, rain, hail, tornados. Thanks to everyone who check-in on Matt and I. We were very lucky and the tornados did not touch down in our neighborhood. Unfortunately, the area of Minneapolis that was hit is one that can ill afford it. Many people have lost their homes and cars. That area of town is currently under a curfew and only residents are allowed to enter. If you'd like to help people affected by the tornados here & in Joplin, MO please donate to the Red Cross here.

Personally, we were really only inconvenienced by the rain. It was the first weekend for the Kingfield and the new Fulton Farmers Markets. We decided to check out the Fulton market on Saturday in between showers.

Looks like this new market is going to be hopping. We were a little disappointed that there was no produce to buy yet (we had been hoping for some asparagus) but there were lots of plants for the garden, cheese, bread and prepared foods to eat there. We picked up an oregano plant (as the squirrels destroyed mine) and some sheep's milk cheese.
This morning I went for my usual walk along the Minnehaha creek only to find the pedestrian path under a couple of inches of water making it only fit for ducks.

On to Menu Planning Monday...
We are headed out on vacation Saturday so, a lot of this week's menu is about cleaning out the fridge.

Something using chicken thighs & sheep's milk cheese

Thursday night we hope to go to Corner Table to check out the new beer garden


Saturday's dinner will be on a plane to Amsterdam.

It has been such an awful year for weather. My heart goes out to all those affected.

Always love your Farmer's Market posts. And are those your boots? Cause I love 'em!

It was a mini ha ha moment to see the ducks walking along the path. See how silly I am?
