So yesterday was really my “start.” Wish me luck, until Labor Day all of my groceries will be purchased from local producers.
One day in and I feel great. Definitely a lot healther than the plethora of backyard barbecue food I devoured over Memorial Day weekend.
As I got in to town late Monday night, my breakfast yesterday morning was a bit unconventional, but extremely delicious:
On Saturday my little brother (13) and father went fishing with some friends on Lake Michigan. They came back with 20 salmon! Over the weekend my family and I made grilled salmon and smoked salmon. Breakfast today: home-smoked salmon fresh from Lake Michigan. It was fantastic.
At lunch I managed to find some time to head to the Wednesday farmers’ market. My pickin’s for the next three days before I venture fulll-force into Saturday’s Market?
For lunch. A spicy cheese empanada from Stella’s Bakery. These are to-die-for!
For groceries: fresh, pesticide free strawberries, dill cheese curds from Murphy Farms, spicy greens and cucumbers.
Spicy greens – these are my favorite!
Also, last Saturday I got sunflower oil from the market to start making homemade salad dressings.
Excited for the full market this weekend. Recipes to come!
