I am so in love with the Flint Farmer's Market!
I plan on gushing and yammering on about it all week in fact! I packed up the girls Saturday morning and headed for Flint. Now granted, this transported city girl was not aware of what was in store. I didn't get up at the butt crack of dawn either cause I am not that hardcore. O.M.G! I was like a kid in a candy store! I was running from booth to booth like a wild woman! A couple of times I did remind myself that I brought the girls and waited for them to catch up. I could of spent the entire day there! The people, the food, the produce.... all were just an enjoyable experience.
Do you know what else resulted from the farmer's market?! A menu plan for the week! So, what is on the menu for the week you may ask. I will let you cause I am going to tell you anyways.
Spinach Salad with Feta Cheese, Strawberries and Raspberry Vinaigrette
Look for an upcoming post about this, this week!
Sweet Garbanzo Curry
I will be doing another post about this too! I have to tell you about the wonderful couple that I met at the market. Nikki had samples of the curry and I fell head over heels in love with it! If there is one thing you try this week from my menu, it HAS to be the curry! Yummylicious!
Guacomole Burgers on the Grill
Prepare burgers and grill as desired. Top burgers with pepper jack cheese and guacomole. Serve on onion rolls.
The latke recipe can be found here. Yvonne @ Stone Gable posted the recipe last week and I have been looking forward to trying it! The soup recipe is one I made previously. It's a fabulously tasty one with no calories!
Guacomole and homemade chips
We love this carne asada recipe! I make it quite alot and there is never any leftovers. Ok, so there is rarely any leftovers with me around anyways. The tortilla recipe can be found in the same post. I just cut the tortillas in 8 triangles and fry in oil. So good!
Seafood Ravioli with cheese sauce
This will be a winging it kind of night. I have no recipe in particular that I am using for the ravioli. I know what I want so I am creating as I go. I will definitely be making a post about this. The semifreddo recipe is from Purple Chocolat House and can be found here. I have been dying to try it and this will be the perfect ending for this meal.
Homemade Baked Beans
Grilled Corn on the Cob with Parmesan Cheese
Look for an upcoming post about BBQ sauce. I started making my own sauce a few years ago and now my tribe has banned store bought sauce. I am going to be experimenting and making a few different kinds for this meal. The ribs are from a Highlander Cow and will be served dry with a variety of sauces to slather on them. Lynne @ Happier Than A Pig In Mud posts some great recipes. The baked beans is from her blog and can be found here. The cole slaw recipe can be found in the same post as the cabbage soup above.
So that is our menu for the week! Lots of great stuff inspired by wonderful bloggy friends and the farmers market! As they say at my house....
