I don't actually go all that often. Actually, pretty much never. We are usually busy during Farmer's Market time, so although I would like to go, I cannot. But this weekend I could. I didn't go all crazy, just get some stuff I need/want. There was so much I wanted, but had no use for at this moment as I already went grocery shopping for the week, but I did find some pretty sweet items.
1 // lemon-basil
2 // green-onions
3 // home-made potato and onion perogies
4 // 1/2 pound of mixed greens and edible flowers
Except for the perogies, everything was cheaper than I can find in the grocery store. I am willing to pay more for fresh perogies instead of frozen ones from the supermarket. You could taste the difference. And you should smell that lemon-basil! I didn't even know the stuff existed, but now I am hooked.
We had planned to get Togo's for lunch (Mmm... avocado and turkey sandwiches) but since I had this stuff I figured I better use it.
Move over, Togos! There is some new competition in town!
There you have it, my farmer's market meal. Fresh perogies cooked in olive oil with sliced onion and topped with chopped lemon-basil, along with a mixed-green salad with blue cheese and some walnut-raspberry-Gorgonzola dressing from Trader Joe's. So good -- both in taste and in health.
You too can enjoy this meal. Although the fresh perogies were better, the ones you get at the grocery store are pretty yum, too. Just slice some onion and cook with the perogies (while frozen) in 2 T of olive oil, over medium heat. Flip occasionally. Cook until they are golden. Not pictured here, but tastes AMAZING when you dip in sour cream... oh man, just talking about it makes me think I need to go back and get some more!
