We really want chicken and were so sad to hear that Matt, our chicken guy, will not be back at the market. He and his wife are, sadly, divorcing. He did the farm out of love for her and is not farming anymore. I miss him.
Here's haul #1- yes, we went to two markets today!
Peaches have been so good! I'm going to make a peach and tomato salad
with these and another gift of tomatoes from my sweet neighbor, Judy. We had tomato bread salad for dinner last night with the earlier ones. So delicious for a summer supper.
Now for some close-ups!
I love, love this granola from Beth
Garlic for some pickles I may make?
I've never made refrigerator pickles- you? Favorite recipe?
In the meantime I'll enjoy these which are so yummy on a brat. This is our 2nd jar this summer.
To go with the pickles
Blackberries for Chef Jim's Shredded Wheat
The making of an omelet at the market- we are missing Brent this summer. He is in Vermont working on his Masters Degree.
On to market #2 in search of chicken-which we found!
Along with corn, baby cabbage and okra
love this tiny cabbages- just right for each of us to have one
Jim has a great recipe for Limping Susan
Hope this chicken will be as good as Matt's and wishing him well along with Abe his precious son adopted from Ethiopia about 3 years ago. I didn't know his wife.
We had some crazy weather and even crazier skies around here Friday. I'll leave you with some photos which don't do the weirdness justice. It was just a strange shade of yellow around here.
Tomorrow-Metal Bracelet class!!

With the opposite direction like this
by the time we got home from dinner it was like this
