Almost Paradiiise...we're knockin' on Heaven's door...
Blahblahblahblah....how could we ask for more....?
I know that Mike and Ann (Wilson) was talking about Lori Singer and Kevin Bacon, but the moniker applies to my adventure.
A chilly, sunny (mostly) October Saturday morning.
Yep. You probably know where I'm going now. Fresh, local produce. Free samples. An general goodwill camaraderie of like-minded people. Free samples. And the vegetables! Vegetables, I tell you! Vegetables that became my dinner.
|Iowa pork chops. With a salt, pepper, and sage dry rubs. Grilled until yummy!|
|Parsnips. Peeled, cubed, and boiled...much in the same vein as potatoes. Butter, milk, chives, and garlic added to the puree.|
|Brussel sprouts (Spencer seen scoring in the background) that would later be parboiled, shocked, then sauteed with a pecan butter.|
|The entire entree. Amazing flavors of fall and beyond.|
My only regret (as it is every mid-October)...the Farmer's Market closes next weekend...and I wish I'd gone more.
