With being back to school, myself and the kids, life, as you know, has been quite busy! I haven't been to a farmers' market in weeks and I was itching to go! So despite the rain the kids and I packed up and headed over to the North Berwick Farmers' Market (check out their revamped website). The NBFM has three more markets left this season, so if you haven't trekked over to North Berwick, maybe you should! Here's what I bought:
- Feta from Creeping Thyme Farm
- oh yeah, and a blueberry scone...
- more leeks
- Swiss chard
I have a whole chicken in the freezer from Newfields Own Produce and I think we'll have that for dinner this weekend. I'll cook it in the crockpot like I always do! On the NBFM website they have a nice section for recipes and I'll be trying the Lemony Leek Risotto to go with the chicken. I'm hungry just thinking about it!
My other culinary plans for the weekend include making a leek & potato soup, kale chips, Swiss chard crustless quiche (which I promise to blog about!), and making chicken broth with the chicken carcass (hence the local celery). Busy week, high expections! Here's hoping I at least get one of these tasks done! (Oh, and if I forget to blog about it, you need to try the spaghetti squash casserole on Penny-wise People's blog, very good stuff!)
What local things have you been up to?
