Weekly Menu and Farmers Market Finds 6/10 - 6/15/12

This week we really saw the effects of the early warm weather we've had here in the Minneapolis area. Early strawberries, tomatoes in June! We even heard we might see the first corn in three weeks.
Farmers Market Finds 6/10/12
Here's what we picked up with week...

Pork Spare Ribs - These are in the freezer to be smoked at a later date
Garlic Scapes - I'll turn most of these into pesto today to be used in lots of different recipes.
Sun Street Granola - Our warm weather breakfast lately is yogurt and granola so we've been trying lots of different local ones.
Tomatoes - So happy to have fresh, seasonal tomatoes again
Strawberries - The last batch was turned into ice cream and this batch will be jam
Foxy Falafel Hummus - Found out we need to get to the market early to get this before it sells out
Boneless Chicken Thighs - I like thigh meat better than breast meat for things like stir-fry because I think it has more flavor.
Plus we still have radishes, eggs, peas and spring onions from last week.

On to Menu Planning Monday & On The Menu Monday....

Have never made garlic scapes before. Love the farmers market and fresh produce in the summer.

Beautiful spread. I love your Farmer's Market reports. Great plans for the garlic scapes! I just used up a bag from a friend in pesto.
