Size Doesn’t Matter
No matter how big or small it is, shopping at your local farmers market is one of the greatest experiences in life (and made even greater when paired with a double shot Latte).
Today, Super-sous and I went to one of our favorite local markets which consists of about 6 or 7 produce stands. It may be small (for California standards), but not having been to/shopped at a farmers market for the past 8 weeks, it was heaven, and we were able to stock up on some of the basics, to hold us over for the next few days.
I bought a beautiful 2 pound filet of line-caught Morro Bay salmon yesterday, so Super-sous and I are going to do some recipe creation which will involve some of the following ingredients (used over various dishes): dinosaur kale, fennel, peas, avocado, golden raisins, shallot, garlic, mint, thyme, rosemary, oregano, lemon and lemon zest, burrata cheese, goat cheese, and a lot of extra virgin olive oil.
With so many fresh, local ingredients, the kitchen is just begging for a piece of the action. Time to cook!
