farmer's market report 
4th-Jul-2010 08:34 am
Yesterday, we almost didn't go to the market. We sat here and wibbled and ultimately, it came down to lettuce and the timing of meals that we wanted to eat. So, we threw on some clothes and raced out, and we were glad we did. Jeff's mom wasn't feeling good, so she didn't come out, which was disappointing; we'd been hoping to get her out of the house for a bit.

We ended up with more than was on the list; I wasn't thinking about the fact that it's July, and produce is rolling in like crazy. So, we got:

- 2 dozen extra large eggs
- potatoes
- cucumbers
- cherry tomatoes
- a double head of gorgeous lettuce, but she knocked a buck off because she felt like it was less than gorgeous
- 3 perfect ears of corn
- some baby yellow squash and zucchini
- ground beef and pork breakfast sausage
- hot dogs and beer brats
- Jeff's mom's spanikopita

I wanted some peaches, but we were running low on cash, and we already have fruit we're trying to work our way through. So. Next week or the week after.

This week, we feast:

Saturday: over easy egg tacos
Sunday: burgers & side salads & fruit
Monday: salads
Tuesday: rice noodle salad bowls
Wednesday: beer brats, potatoes
Thursday: lasagne, which keeps getting bumped each week
Friday: breakfast pizza

I need to do an Asian market run, and will probably need to grab some more cheese for those that can. Otherwise, we're set for the week.

Rice Noodle Salad Bowls! OH!

The grilled chicken thighs I do for salad wraps are just as good in salad. Now I want. Darn you!!!

I marinade with leftover nuoc cham, mixed with extra brown sugar. Then grilled.

We were going to get apple brats, but they were out, so it's like, sure, we'll try the beer ones.

Better to know now than afterwards. :(

Yup. I just feel silly because I didn't think about it. I know beer has gluten, heh.

(And milk chocolate has milk! Who'd've thunk.)
