I love Farmers' Markets. I could go everyday!
We went to the market in Elizabeth on Friday night - our first real market this year.
My favorite vendors are John and Sara - before I retired, I taught with John.
We also bought produce from a gardener here in town Saturday.
So last night I cooked! Cooking is something new in my recovery.
Ray grilled burgers (beef from John and Sara).
I fixed red potatoes (from John and Sara), green beens (from John and Sara), yellow beens (from market) and sweet corn (from John and Sara).
Of course, I forgot to take pictures - I was so excited to be fixing an almost whole meal! Anyway, the Illinois Farm Bureau posted a recipe on Facebook yesterday for bacon wrapped green bean bundles .
This is the recipe photo. You might want to try them - really good!
Tonight I cooked again! Ray grilled pork chops (from John and Sarah) - wonderful!
I fixed green beens (from John and Sara) using a recipe I got from Lori - wonderful!
And sweet corn - yes, already. It was from John and Sara! Wonderful!
Also a little zucchini from John and Sara. Very good!
We had a little bread from some wonderful baker at the market.
We ate over half of it before tonight!
As if that wasn't enough, we had fresh raspberries for dessert (from a local gardener) - wonderful!
And we just had to add a little cool whip!
I just love going to the Farmers' Market and then eating the bounty!
