Spring Has Sprung!Posted: May 4, 2011
Yesterday was the first day of my local farmer’s market! I was so excited, I have been counting down the months and days! Not all of the farmers were there and the selection was limited but it was so nice to see their happy faces again! My first weeks haul was; asparagus, mixed greens, FARM EGGS!!!, apples and pasture raised ground beef from a new vendor! I am excited to make burgers I can feel good about eating! Nick will be happy to have some beef too.
Here are a few meals I made last night and tonight with my FM ingredients!
Curry yellow split peas, roasted turnip with chili powder, green beans, LOCAL pea shoots, arugula, spinach and greens.
Tonight it was frittata time! I bought the pan above specifically to make a frittata and this was my first one! I followed Kath’s recipe minus the sunflower seeds because I didn’t have any and I added chili powder and collard greens.
Frittata slices, FM greens with blue cheese, buttered toast.
Delicious Maryland asparagus and eggs!
I cannot wait for more produce to continue to come in as the months go on. I am also planning on picking strawberries and peaches again!
