This was all purchased Saturday morning at the market. There are heaps of corn, potatoes, beans, and snow peas behind the scenes. The meats are grass-fed ground beef and some pork and wild rice sausages. We also have zucchini, basil, and thyme from the garden. We should have tomatoes soon.
Last night I used some of the green and wax beans and tomatoes to make a salad with a vinaigrette to take to a friend's house.
Today I'll be trying a new recipe for grilled corn which involves soaking the husked corn in a brine solution for hours before grilling. I'm so excited to eat the first local corn of the year.
I was reading a chapter of Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle in which she describes going to the local farmer's market on a cold Saturday in April. She was not expecting to find much but found a bounty of food even then.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and seek out some local vegetables if you can.
