portsmouth farmers' market trip

Another beautiful Saturday morning - another trip to the Portsmouth farmers' market! We brought home delicata squash, Brussels sprouts, Northern Spy apples, a rutabaga, and a nice big bunch of kale. We also got some kabocha "sunshine" squash (those are the ones in the photo that look like flat versions of pumpkins). This is the first year we've tried kabocha - and it's definitely an instant favorite. It's really awesome just peeled and de-seeded, cut up in big chunks, and roasted in the oven after being tossed with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and minced garlic. That'll be part of dinner tonight!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Looks like a good haul!! I've never seen Brussels sprouts on the stalk like that. It all looks yummy (well, except I'm not a huge winter squash fan unfortunately.)

I was hoping for sun for some photography this afternoon. Hopefully the clouds are just passing through!

Enjoy your veggies!

Nice to meet you...I am a foodie too - and I love learning how to cook the veggies that we have here in NE - and I love going to all the farmers' markets.

Hi Sue - This was the first time we bought Brussels sprouts that way - they were both pretty and tasty!!

Hi Sara - Nice to meet you too - thanks for stopping by and commenting! We try to eat as locally as we can, and so we're always looking for and trying new recipes and ideas. It's lots of fun to share what we learn, and learn from other folks too!! :-)
