Early Saturday Mornings

Okay.  I love my job.  Even though it requires me to get up at 3:30 am every day.  I really, really love my job.

But I also really, really love my weekends.  I get to sleep in.  Normally, I get up around 8 am.  Now, I know that for most people, 8 am on a Saturday is early.  But for me, anything past 4 am is sleeping in.

There’s not much that I’m willing to get up for before 8 am on a Saturday.  As a matter of fact, there’s only one thing I’m willing to set the alarm for 6:30 am for.

The Farmer’s Market.

The HaulThis is $20 worth of food.

Three heads of garlic, two zucchini, three squash, one, patty pan(?) squash, five cucumbers, one head of broccoli, four tomatoes, one pint of blackberries, and one pound of green beans.

Oh, do I have plans for cooking this week!

And since it’s summer, and tomatoes are FINALLY at the Farmer’s Market, I can make my favorite summer sandwich.

The NomsToasted Bagel, Cream Cheese with Tomato.

Best.  Sandwich.  Ever.

So…anyone got any good recipes for a ton of squash??




Farmer’s Market

Okay.  Most people who know me know that I like my Saturdays.  Particularly when I get to sleep in late.  So why would I get up at 6am on a Saturday?  The Farmer’s Market.  I love the Farmer’s Market.  So, here’s what I got for less than 15 bucks.

1 Bunch Carrots

2 Pounds Potatoes

2 Cucumber

4 Summer Squash

1 Pound Green Beans

2 Heads of Garlic.

I see a salad in my future…

Any ideas on what I can do with Carrot Greens?
