|The Neighborhood Farm spread of fresh greens|
Today was the day. Opening day of the Needham Farmers Market. I’ve been working on this for two years so it was a really special to see it all come together. The vendors had a successful day, the weather was stellar and everything went according to plan. Best part of all, I now have some locally grown meat and produce to enjoy in the coming days.
Sunday~ Grilled salmon picked up at the farmers market. We used a lemon garlic rub on the salmon fillets and grilled them.
Monday~ Beef hotdogs from Foxboro Cheese/Lawton Family Farm. Real beef, no nitrates or nitrites and the farmer said I will see real meat when we bite into the hot dog. ”Not a pink circle” Farmer Ed Lawton had a lot to say about the meat raised on his farm and I expect to pick up a lot more this season. He also sells raw milk at his farm if you are looking for it.
Tuesday~ Teriyaki Salmon Burger. They were a hit last week so we got some more since they were on sale. We mixed up our own tartar sauce for the topping. Just a little mayo and some relish. I get relish from Whole Foods since it’s nearly impossible to find relish at a regular grocery store without high fructose corn syrup.
Wednesday~ Pulled Pork Sandwiches. I’m pulling out the crockpot and working on a list of favorite recipes to utilize the crock pot in the summer. There is no reason to put this great task-maker away, especially when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen in the hot summer season.
Friday~ Pizza night! I’ll be sharing this week what pizza night means to our family and share a great new product we reviewed, Summit Pasta sauce. Did you know you can get 6 vegetables into a sauce that kids will love?!
