Farmers Market Thursday - June 19, 2008
spicy greens mix
The variety is growing at Tantre...
And then we bought:
fresh mozzarella from Zingerman's Creamery
a rhubarb truffle, Leopold Bros. Blackberry Truffle, and Leapin' Lemon from Sweet Gem Confections
C is at camp this week, which means D and I can eat vegetarian and eat some things that he might turn away from.
This must be the week for squash blossom yens, because both Shana, from The Gastronomical Three, and Mae, from Mae's Food Blog, made similar recipes this week. I will be going their route, as well, although I think I'm going to use some of the fresh mozzarella.
At this point, with the strawberries, we're just eating them fresh. They're too good to do otherwise.
I'm making a huge pot of minestrone today, using spinach, some homemade chicken broth, the carrots, beets, canned tomatoes, canellini beans and some pasta.
We plan to wrap the asparagus in proscuitto and grill it.
I'll also do a stir fry with the tatsoi, spicy greens mix, some of the carrots and onions, and some marinated tofu.
And, of course, salads.
