We are so lucky here in the metropolitan area to have some of the most lovely farmers markets. Today I went with my Dad and picked up these lovely little items:
-My Mom and I sit down and pick all the beans out of these, then put everything in to a pot & make a traditional Greek meal out of it with tomato sauce and potatoes (will blog this recipe when we make it)
JUICY homegrown tomatoes
-I'm thinking we are going to use these for fresh tomato, feta, & oregano salads...or fill them with ground turkey, feta, and orzo & bake in the oven.
YELLOW grape tomatoes
-Are these not adorable?? And the smell is so earthy!! These little balls of sunshine are wonderful on their own as a snack, but I prefer to chop them up & use them for homemade bruschetta. Not only do they add a different taste when mixed with red cherry tomatoes, but they also add wonderful color.
Zucchini & Squash
-BEAUTIFUL!! They really are. I like to slice these thick, steam them, then top with delicious olive oil & lemon juice. Amazing side dish!
