Saturday is going to be a big day in Lexington! The University of Kentucky gets to show how good they are against the University of Louisville...go cats! Of course that means that the downtown traffic will be very busy so why not take the opportunity to take the short drive out Richmond Rd. to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! I can promise that the traffic will be much better and we always have plenty of free and convenient parking.
Now on to the market...
I am an avid recipe collector but I also promise that I do try them! I was so excited to learn that we would have local apples available at the market this week because it meant I could enjoy on of my very most favorite treats..a grilled apple'n cheese sandwich! I know, it sounds odd but believe me it's wonderful and so easy to make. It would be a great after school snack for the kids but I'm a big girl and I love them too!
Grilled Apple'n Cheese Sandwich
Lightly toast your bread...choice is yours but I have to admit that I prefer whole wheat.
Place a few slices of Jack cheese (Swiss works great too) on one side of toasted bread.
Then cover with thinly sliced apples...I leave the skin on them!
Sprinkle with just a bit of cinnamon and sugar.
Cover with the remaining slice of toasted bread.
Melt some butter in a skillet and “grill” your sandwich until the cheese is melted and the toast is golden brown!
Grab a napkin and enjoy!
The really great part is we'll have the locally grown apples and Casey County Amish cheese available at the market this week...all you need is the bread!
Another new item making its first appearance at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market this week is Casey County sorghum! I'm telling you I feel like I have died and gone to heaven! I can smell and taste my biscuits slathered with warm sorghum and butter already! It's hard to decide which I love more, honey or sorghum, on my biscuits. The good thing...we'll have plenty of both available this Saturday!
Here are more goodies that you'll find this week at the market...
jams and jellies
farm fresh eggs
ASH free beef
fresh cut flowers
And, so much more including a really neat item that I just had to buy for my hubby...an Amish made walking stick! You couldn't beat the $5 price tag!!!
~*~ MARKET HOURS ~*~

We'll be set up in the beautiful tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, right next door to the Glenn Auto Mall on Richmond Rd. It's just a hop, skip and a jump outside of Man 'O War Blvd. Parking is right there so you don't have to drive around hunting for a spot to park. The parking lot is also paved and that makes it very stroller and wheelchair friendly!

Look for our new and bigger signs!
