We headed off to the farmer’s market today again. I came back with produce for the whole week, including apples. I love fall at the farmer’s market. Most of the produce in Minnesota is harvested in the fall, and the bustle and bushels and baskets of peppers, corn, tomatoes and onions make it that much more enjoyably…for me, at least.
We came home with a fantastic bushel of early apples, perfect for eating and eating and eating some more. A few more weeks until peak apple season hits and the apple desserts can begin. I have several bookmarked and dogeared to try the minute they get here. In the meantime, I’ll be eating these tiny apples with the kids.
Monday – Lemon chicken pasta salad (Ole teaches after work on Monday, and this is SO easy to make ahead and have ready) with spring mix greens, grapes
Tuesday – Turkey Milanese, roasted tomatoes and cipollini from Smitten Kitchen (Congrats on the little guy, Deb!), steamed rice
Wednesday – Sicilian Sfincione, similar to a Neapolitan pizza
Thursday – Sweet and sour chicken, Ahi tuna potstickers
Friday – Bacon-wrapped Filet Mignon, cheesy rice, steamed green beans
Recipes to look for here at Food for My Family this week: Last week’s gâteau started a string of baking inspired by my grandma and her cookbook. Right now there is a Zwetschgenkuchen – or plum cake – cooling, fresh from the oven. I’ll share that and make good on the barbecue rib video. Editing is taking a bit longer than I anticipated, but it’s on its way.
