It's Monday morning and here I sit trying to think of the best way to let folks know what wonderful items are available this week at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. I don't want to just post a list because that seems so boring. It finally came to me...how about I tell you about the wonderful bounty that we had this weekend at our home! The great part is, all of the goodies are still at the market. :)
Our weekend of market freshness started out on Saturday when I returned from a day of selling at the market. We unloaded our bounty and quickly decided that grilled veggies and a burger would be dinner! The ASH Free burgers were wonderful rubbed with some Herb'n Cowboy seasoning and topped with some Amish Colby cheese. The carrots, potatoes and peppers got washed and rubbed with a bit of bacon dripp'ins and a bit more herb seasoning and grilled right along with the burgers. We added some fabulous sliced tomatoes and a skillet full of the very best bi-color fried corn you've ever tasted. Tell me we didn't eat good on Saturday night and 99.9% of it came from the market!!! Fresh, homegrown and for sure delicious!
How the heck do you top that meal on Sunday? I'm not sure we topped it but we darn sure enjoyed it with all of the gusto of the previous evening. The day started out with more potatoes only this time we fried them in a skillet with some green peppers. Add some great farm fresh eggs and scramble it all together and top with a bit of Amish Parmesan cheese. It was heaven! I know we are supposed to be working and not thinking about “what's for dinner” but somehow the thought of more market goodies took over and we rested and pondered what our evening meal would be! Shame on us, but I have to admit that we were both pooped from a long week.
Our Sunday dinner bell rang and we sat down to yet another market bounty meal! I think you would call this meal a “farmers market special!” We had green beans, corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers with dill seasoning and fresh raspberries for dessert. It just doesn't get any better than that!
Yes, my friends, eat'in is good when it's homegrown and fresh from the market! The great thing is you'll be able to find all the freshness that you want at our Tuesday and Thursday markets.
