Baby Bella Mushrooms stuffed with Ricotta, Fresh Herbs, and More Mushrooms.
I love being able to throw together dishes like these. I have no real recipes for any of them; no measurements, quantities or times. I just had a garden, a recent trip to the Farmers market, some homemade cheeses, and a few other ingredients – mostly local. And a hungry family.
I think this may be one of my husband's and my son's favorite desserts. That was part of the reason I bought so many strawberries and so much rhubarb at the farmers' market last Friday - some for the jam, and definately some for pie. I have any number of books with recipes for Strawberry Rhubarb… Continue reading Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Here's the haul from today. I got eggs, rhubarb and more goats' milk from the Honey Stick Man. I got that pretty purple kohlrabi and some of the above strawberries from Ledge Ends Produce, and the rest of the strawberries from Schartner's Farm, which is in Exeter, RI. And the candy (no, it's not soap - look… Continue reading Farmers’ Market Friday
Sometimes I take photos of something I'm making, but then get busy with other posts and forget (or neglect) to post some of the older recipes and photos. Like with these eggrolls. I made them in...early June. Okay, so that's only about 5 weeks ago. Could be worse, I suppose.
Wednesday night our family and another family (my son's best friend and his parents) went to watch the Pawtucket Red Sox play the Syracuse Chiefs (we lost 6-5) at McCoy Stadium.
And there were fireworks after the game. It's a four night event that runs, I think, the 2nd through the 5th. It was sold out on Wednesday, and we had free tickets, as that night's fireworks display was sponsored by Dave's Marketplace, and each store had 300 tickets to give away. Woo hoo!
They were general seating/bleachers tickets, and we should have gotten there earlier than we did - we ended up walking all over the place looking for 7 seats together or 3 and 4 together...no luck. So we ended up sitting on the bleachers out near right field. And that was probably for the best, as the kids could get down and run around a bit and work off some of their excess energy.
What a perfect day to go browsing for vegetables and more strawberries. It's sunny and all that, but this morning it was only about 70 degrees - quite comfy. We got started later than usual this morning - Alex is on a field trip with his class (nice way to spend the last day of… Continue reading Farmers’ Market Friday
Well, to begin with, it was a rainy, rainy early morning. And cold. Well, for June. (Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the low 90s. I prefer today's high 50s and rain, actually.) But Julia and I set out with our raincoats and umbrellas because that's the kind of hardy, fearless chicks we are. We reached Goodard… Continue reading Farmers’ Market Friday – the Haul
It's Friday (really?) and after we drop Alex off at school, Princess Julia and I are off to the Farmers' Market. Should be interesting today - it's POURING rain right now and that's supposed to continue through the rest of the morning, as far as I know. But go we shall, because it's fun, it's… Continue reading Farmers’ Market Friday
For the second week in a row, Julia and I have gone to the Farmers' Market at Goddard State Park. It's still relatively early in the season - the first day we went there were only a few booths on hand - most of the farms were selling plants - flowers, vegetables, herbs - rather… Continue reading Farmers’ Market with Julia, 5.22.08
