Today I Stopped At The Farm Stand

I decided to stop at the farm stand today on my way back home from the gym. I love living in a suburban area that has access to multiple farm stands and farmer’s markets. As you can see from the photo, I picked up a bounty of fruits and veggies. Corn, pickling cukes, lemon cukes, heirloom tomatoes, green beans, Italian plums, peaches, yellow squash, zucchini and Gala apples. All that for just $16. I love supporting my local farmers. I swing by this particular stand once or twice a week during the summer. It has the best tomatoes. I’m talking about REAL tomatoes– sweet and juicy. Not the sad, orangish-looking orbs labeled as tomatoes in most grocery stores.

I’m not sure what I’m going to make with my fresh farm stand produce but I plan to keep it fairly simple so we can taste the true flavor of the veggies. I’ll either steam them or saute them lightly in butter then finish each veggie with a sprinkling of kosher salt. Nothing fancy. Just good, honest vegetables simply prepared. And the fruit, well I won’t need to add anything to it because it’s good enough just as it is.
