This weekend, J. and I hit the big Farmer's Market in downtown Kansas City and came home with some yummy, great-looking veggies. Chipotle was there handing our free $10 tokens that could be spent at one vendor in the market, so everything in the picture was free. We had the carrots Tuesday night, and the Yukon gold potatoes mashed last night. The banana peppers went into some of the salsa we made on Monday evening.
I won't say who ate them, but I'm pretty sure those peaches are no longer present in my kitchen either. And, shortly, those beets and cucumbers will find themselves pickled. Sometime (hopefully soon!), I'm going to show my sis-in-law how to can salsa. That should be great fun.
Ya know, looking at that picture, I'm thinking there's really nothing better than fresh produce from the market, unless it's walking out of your house to pluck it right out of your backyard garden. Who needs a bowl when you can eat blackberries right off the vine while sitting on your patio?
I suspect everyone is in the middle of canning, freezing, preserving and, well....EATING! What have you been up to?
