Because it's fun, here are some photos of our shopping loot! (Grass-fed beef bratwurst isn't pictured, it's in the freezer for now!)
Our glass platter loaded down with new produce. Cukes, eggplant, tomatoes, bell pepper, candy red onions, and more garlic!
Fresh young lettuces for salads and BLTs. The bowl was a gift from our potter friend Gay Brown.
We had BLTs for lunch both Saturday and Sunday. Only the second time this season we've indulged. And they were wonderful!
Pat's bread board, once again loaded down. Clockwise from the top: Pre-sliced Anadama bread from Wake Robin Farm Organic Breads (as I said, we were later than we had meant to be, and most of the breads were gone by the time we got to the MArket!), a taste of summer sunshine fresh local black berries (the birds have eaten all of ours!), sweet heirloom red Italian peppers, a mild goat cheese (that was gone by Monday!), and fresh arugala and egg pasta from Pasta Momma.
My treasure trove! An half-pound of fresh oyster mushrooms!!! Half of them were sauteed with butte and olive oil and some heirloom sweet Italian red peppers and served over the pasta Saturday. The other half was for Sunday night's dinner! They have an incredible delicate flavor that is easily overpowered.
The plate was made by Hamilton Williams in 1997; Tim Jacks gave us a pair of them.
Green beans! These are not Blue Lake beans, I've forgotten just what variety they are. No matter, they are delicious raw and I'm looking forward to using some of them Monday night!
Casserole by and a gift from Gay Brown.
I'm not sure if Inky is wanting to help with the photography or if he is interested in sampling the cheese!
