Today, we went to the Farmer's Market for fresh vegetables. Some of my friends from whom I buy gave me more than I paid for. YaY!
What I bought: new potatoes, two portions of yellow squash from different vendors, a flat cabbage, and zucchini. Since I had a weekly doctor's appointment, we were late getting home. I intended to cook all this, and ended up cooking just the cabbage and yellow squash in the same pan. Sliced tomatoes rounded the meal out. These were the third meal of fresh vegetables for the year. MMMMM, so good.
When I asked one guy why all his cabbage were so flat, he said they were Dutch Flat Cabbage. I thought he was covering for a crop anomaly and laughed. Well, it is true. Cabbage was delicious!
Dominique will love the trimmings.
Tomorrow, I will go back for ripe tomatoes.
Oh, there were no more tomatoes except green ones. So, WM had those. Since I cannot eat beef, I cooked up some stupendously long smoked hotdogs for exbf. The rest he took home.
Oh, I forgot the best part. One guy had lemonade with fresh lemon and real sugar. I may stop by and get this often. He only charged $1 for a generous cup without too much ice. I really wanted some of the small zucchini breads, but I refrained.
All farmers MUST raise their own produce. Some "markets" just go to a big city and buy from a truck from CA or elsewhere.
And, I bought a new camera. This is my money I won at the spelling bee.
Have you ever heard of or seen Dutch Flat Cabbage? Do you shop at the Farmer's Market in your town?
