Farmers Market Bounty

All of these veggies went into some yummy salsa. Throw in a nectarine or peach the next time you make salsa, and a cob of corn- it's a yummy addition.
This pizza was topped with everything from the market. We splurged and bought a smoked ham from Farmer James. It was well worth it, much more moist than the ones in the store.
Bobby Flay is my food hero. I love anything he makes. This meal of spiced rubbed chicken breast tacos with grilled poblanos, bbq onions coleslaw and guac was definitely worth the effort. I made it on a hot, hot day.
When Amy was here we watched Julie and Julia and I've had the cooking bug ever since. I had huge visions of a bountiful garden for this summer, but that didn't really happen. But I absolutely love heading to the farmers market. And I must admit, as magical as the idea of gardening is in my mind, it's much more fun to stroll to the market with a cute skirt on and pick out whatever I want. Much easier and less dirty than gardening yourself. Someday I'll have one of my own.

Tomorrow I'll share my meager gardening attempts from this year!
