Farmer's Market - September 14



The farmer's market is much less crowded on Sunday, as I noticed yesterday. This is a great time of year, with Summer veggies still being available, and all of the Fall items becoming available. Newly available items that I bought include cauliflower, parsnips, brussels sprouts and honey. The girl has been asking for cauliflower cheese pie, so we'll be having that this week.

The thing I've bought every week since July and didn't buy today is corn. I'm a little tired of shucking it and pulling all those strings off of it. I am beyond impressed with people that do this in large quantities and can or freeze it.

There you go, showing off again. I want those brussels sprouts. Cauliflower cheese pie sounds wonderful - share the recipe with us, please!

Yeah, a fellow lover of Brussels sprouts! How do you like yours cooked?

It's exactly the same, except my version calls for 1 3/4 cups of cheese! I was able to use fresh herbs yesterday which makes it extra good.

You are making me hungry again :0 Everything looks so fresh and yummy. I think it's great that your girl asks for veggies! My daughter does, but my son would faint dead away if there was something of the veggie variety on his plate. Boys! Sheesh!

I just barely read about freezing corn, and I'm psyched to try it. You just husk, trim, wash, dry and put it in a bag.

My hat is off to you if you do this, Nan! I'm so tired of those little strings...
