Weekly Menu and Farmers Market Finds 7/3 - 7/9/11

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend (well, holidays in the States and Canada anyway). We had a bit of a busy one. Our friends Susi & Rob visited us for San Francisco and got to experience the fun that is Kingfield Farmers Market. Their daughter, A, enjoyed a puppet show while Mom, Susi, got to blend her own smoothie on the Foxy Falafel Blender Bike.

The produce is really picking up at the market right now too!
Farmers Market Finds 7/3

Here's what we got this week...
Eggs - most were hard boiled & turned into deviled eggs for the 4th.
Strawberries - for a Creamy Strawberry Pie I'll share tomorrow
Broccoli - for the relish tray yesterday
Salad Greens - those will go with fajitas tomorrow
Beets - my dad asked for beet donuts this week
Green Beans
IPA Brat Buns - we bought out all Sun Street Breads had for the 4th
Love Tree Farm's Gabrielson Lake Cheese - on the Best Local Foods List
Vanilla Bean Macaroons 

The only down point to the day was Matt ended up in splint with what looks like a broken wrist from a fall two weeks ago.
Hardware Malfunction?
Yes, it took us two weeks to have it looked at. Today we'll see whether he needs surgery or just a cast. The poor guy is having a time learning how to do everything with his left hand.

Our backyard was full of lots of family and friends for the Fourth. We had a pretty classic midwestern BBQ menu, cole slaw, deviled eggs, homemade baked beans, Wisconsin brats, hotdogs, ice cream and pie. Of course, there were also sparklers and fireworks.

Finally, on to Menu Planning Monday (um, Tuesday)...

Green bean and leftover steak stir-fry

Salmon Fajitas for twelve - also chicken fajitas for the non-fish eaters

Gabrielson Lake Cheeseburgers with roasted potatoes

Think we'll eat out on Friday

Rotisserie Chicken which will leave us with lots of good leftovers.

That's pretty much my ideal image of a 4th of July! Lovely! Hope Matt's wrist heals quickly.

I'm new to Minneapolis so I love seeing all of the goodies you picked up at the market! I am definitely making it there this weekend. The Best Local Foods list is really helpful too! So glad I found your blog!
