Get Thee To Your Local Farmer's Market
Fall's bounty is starting to pour in to farmer's markets so don't miss out! These markets are a feast for the senses and it is so much fun to enjoy all the sights, smells, sounds and tastes. There is a real sense of community, especially after a few visits when you get to know some of the vendors. You can also do a little people watching. In the end, you get to bring home loads of delicious, nutritious foods to get creative with in the kitchen.
At our local market, there was even free BBQ grilled corn on the cob available! Love that - it tasted like candy. Next week they are going to have grilled zucchini and veggie burgers in addition to the usual offerings!
I picked up some great organic goodies, including zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers and more. I am looking forward to coming up with some new ways to enjoy them!
