Bowl of Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrots ready for Dinner. Hey, I was already prepping for Winter storage 🙂

 

Ready for what? you ask. Ready to be Vacuum sealed and put in my Freezer. So, that we can stretch the beautiful Farmer’s Market Bounty as long as possible. It always seems like a very long time between the end of November and the first weekend of May. 😦

I’ll be going to the Farmer’s Market again tomorrow to fill in some gaps. I had purchased Peas to put away for Winter. But, guess what happened? Yep, we ate them 🙂

Every year I get better and better about putting food away. I did forget to put Berries, Corn and Asparagus away this year. I’m getting there. It’s all good.

 

Til next time…….enjoy

Summer Squash (aka Patty Pan $2 a lb.), Lettuces($2 each), Spring Onions (aka Scallions)($1.50), Broccoli($2 a lb.), Cauliflower(look at all the colors)($2 a lb.), Strawberries($4 a qt.) and the best Cheeses(prices vary)- Chive Cheddar, Caraway Cheddar and the most flavorful  Monterey Jack you will ever taste.

The Broccoli and Cauliflower will be washed and trimmed for Dinners and mostly for Lunches this week. I think I’ll make a Dill Dip for the Veggies.

Simple Dill Dip

Dill to taste

a sprinkle of Garlic

Plain Yogurt

Ranch Dressing to taste

a splash of Pickle Juice

Mix well, put in a air-tight container, refrigerate and let it talk for an hour or more. Enjoy!!!

 

Til next time…..go check out your local Farmer’s Market.
