After having been away for a couple of weeks, I finally made it the Dane County Farmers Market to poke around and see what's in season right now. So here's my little stash of stuff, and I'd love to hear your suggestions on what you'd do with it! Especially that lovely bunch of asparagus.
So let your imagination run free and help a girl out here. Here are this week's finds:
1 - 5 lb jug of local honey from Gentle Breeze
1 bunch of parsnips (they're hiding in the back)
1 - 1/2lb bag of chemical free mixed lettuce
1 bag full of spray-free beefsteak-style tomatoes
1 bunch of asparagus
1 bunch spray-free mint
3 spray-free cucumbers
Right now I'm thinking of an asparagus omelet and a Greek salad.
I'm also thinking of using that bunch of mint to make some chilled mint tea to help get us through some of the muggy heat we've been having.
The honey tends to get used up in baked goods and in our morning cups of tea :)
I know my husband will use one or two parsnips to make a veggie stew, but there will still be several left over.
What would you do with all this lovely local produce?
