Today I wanted to walk away from the farmers market with a couple of new-to-me items.
Not that carrots are new, but purple carrots are.
And patty pan squash. Have you tried it? How did you make it? I may roast the squash, eggplant, and peppers to have on-hand for the week.
Mmmm…apples! Local apple growers will have a smaller crop this year due to weather. Most orchards will not have pick-you-own options just so the precious apples that are on the trees are picked with care and don’t go to waste. I will stick to the pick-my-own by way of the market or going directly to my favorite orchards.
What are you cooking this weekend? I’m going to a family dinner tonight–my dad is grilling burgers and I’m in charge of bringing the pretzel rolls. Check out Pretzilla! And to keep it extra healthy, Cybros sprouted hamburger buns, too!
I am dying to try that patty pan squash, let me know what it tastes like I am super interested.
You found quite a few veggies at the Farmer’s Market!
Just had patty pan squash for the first time last night. I sauteed them in a olive oil/butter combo with just a bit of garlic. DELISH!!
Thanks for the tip!
I’m so sad I didn’t get a chance to hit up our local farmers market!!
