Weekly Menu and Farmers Market Finds 7/17 - 7/23/11

So, I read today that the only place more humid than Minneapolis right now is the Amazon rain forest. I don't know if that is true or not but it certainly feels like it. These heat indexes of 117F really take away our desire to cook, eat or do much of anything. All I can say is, thank goodness for air conditioning!

Farmers Market Finds 7/17
We did manage a quick trip through the Kingfield Farmers Market yesterday. I felt for those vendors in the heat, they were all thanking us for actually coming out on a day like that. Here's what we picked up.

Kohlrabi - for slaw
Sun Street Rye and Sunflower Seed Bread - made with a wheat beer
Beez Kneez Honey - she'll deliver it right to your house on a bike if you want!
Purple Broccoli
Hickory Smoked Bacon - also for the slaw
Fresh Garlic
5 pints of blueberries - I froze these until it gets to be a little cooler to make jam.
New York Strip Steaks
Not shown are a Maple Bacon Donut and a Brioche Brown Butter Donut from Bogart Loves (because we ate them before we got home!)

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Brats with Kohlrabi Slaw and Potatoes

Swedish Shrimp Sandwiches

Chicken Pita Sandwiches

Thursday we'll be going to Eat Ramen, Help Japan 

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Grilled Steaks - if it ever cools down, enough

I love your menu planning idea. I keep trying to grab a hold of that concept, but it seems like it never ends up working out (timing, not home, etc). Great work!

We're feeling the heat and humidity in southern WI too - it's dreadful!

Even though this week has been a bit cooler here, I can't tell you how awful it was to go from fall like weather in Ireland back to sauna. I was cranky!
