I never thought I'd do party shopping at the farmer's market, but I like the way it feels.
Last night, I made my grocery list for my daughter's birthday party, which we're co-hosting with a neighbor. And I realized, particularly with side dishes, most of what I could buy could come as far away as the next town over.
My pasta salad? Grabbing a few basil plants and zucchini at the market, and spinach from the back yard.
Fresh cut veggies? No problem.
Watermelons? We're still a few weeks away from local melons. But it beats giving up my home-grown strawberries!
What are you cooking up from the local markets lately? Any plans for next weekend's cookouts? Post your comments or links below!
