Cabbage stir fry over rice - Looks good doesn't it? As usual, nothing complicated comes out of my kitchen. This was a super easy meal that tasted fabulous, every single time.
While I cooked a half cup of local brown rice on the stove, I chopped some cabbage (backyard garden), carrots (Farmers' Market), spinach (Farmers' Market) and mushrooms (Farm Patch Produce Market), and sauteed them in a drizzle of olive oil (Farmers' Market) with just a hint of salt. Once the veggies had cooked through and softened, I set them aside until the rice was done, them mixed it together to make an lunch SO tasty, that I made it the exact same way every day this week. Why play with perfection?
Sweet Potatoes - It's been a couple weeks since I've shown off my all-time favorite potato. I've now eaten the last few I had stored in the fridge, and they've disappeared from the market as well. I'd like to say a few words to my delicious friend SP, who I won't likely see again until next fall/winter. I LOVE YOU, SP. I'LL MISS YOU...
Right. So anyway, as usual, I just chopped some sweet potatoes (farmers' market) into bite-sized pieces as well as some yellow onion (farmers' market) and mushrooms (Farm Patch). I tossed everything into a frying pan and sauteed them in olive oil (farmers' market) with a little salt until the veggies had softened. Super easy, super fantastic meal! And it's all local (well, except the salt). Mmmm, mmmm!
Baked Spaghetti and Steamed Broccoli - The picture is a little fuzzy since I took it right after I dished the plate (it was still steaming hot). This is another one of Dave's meals. Over the holidays, I got a few recipes from Dave's mom - things he enjoys eating for those few times a year I actually feel likecooking dinner. I'm not winning any wife-of-the-year awards, I know. Anyway, it's not all local, but most of it is. Let's see. The baked spaghetti was made with grass-fed ground beef (local and given to us from a friend), onion (farmers' market), spaghetti (not local), and one can of tomato soup (not local). As a side, I steamed some of the broccoli from our farmers' market.
Like last week, I can't vouch for the tastiness of the meal, but Dave ate every last bite!
Well there you have it - this week's Market to Table post. I wish I had more of those yummy strawberries to show you, but every time I've hit the produce market, they've been out of them. I guess I'm not the only one enjoying local foods!
Have a great Thursday, everyone. And as always, Happy (and mindful) eating!
