Hi gang! Scott and I were able to hit the Hilliard Farm Market this week and we were not disappointed! I think this is the most I’ve bought yet! I definitely wanted to go because I was in great need of some fresh tomatoes in my life. Summer tomatoes have totally stolen my heart this year. Here’s what was in my bag:
- Orange Tomatoes
- Red Tomatoes
- Green Peppers
- Whole Wheat bread loaf
- Green peppers came from Wishwell Farms, 2 for $1 which considering the size of these peppers, is a great deal.
- Orange tomatoes, blackberries (which are huge!), zucchinis, and nectarines all came from Hirsch Fruit Farm.
- Four ears of bi-color sweet corn and red tomatoes from Rhoads Farm.
- And finally the Whole Wheat bread came from Grammy’s Cozy Kitchen (no website).
I had some time on my hands last night to cook up a lovely supper! It was hot outside but that didn’t stop me from putting on a big pot of chowder!
Oh yes I did!
We had corn chowder last night with all four ears of fresh corn! Some of the green pepper and zucchini got tossed in as well. The chowder was spicy, thick, and delicious. With the whole wheat bread on the side topped with a smidge of butter this meal was satisfying for both the bellah and the soul.
Today some tomato slices went onto a veggie wrap for Scott and I put some on my salad at lunch. I also have some tomatoes ready to go into a homemade salsa! The blackberries I keep sneaking pieces of every time I pass the fridge.
What did you get at the market this week?
