We bought regular large eggs, but then decided to get a carton of pullet eggs (left), which are the first eggs a hen lays when they are less than a year old. They are smaller than standard eggs. Some people think they are richer than standard eggs, but our pastured eggs from Salt Fork Farms are so good that it doesn’t really matter if they’re big or small.
The cherry tomatoes were just for Dexter. Although his sweet tooth usually pulls him toward things more like this, he loves popping back tomatoes. I don’t get it, but I do support the habit.
The onions and zucchini will go in spaghetti sauce, in omelets, and atop huevos rancheros.
We devoured the potatoes Saturday night with burgers. I tried an Amy’s veggie burger for the first time.
Last week, I had high hopes for cooking meals and following recipes. I’ve realized that since school has started, quick meals are the only ones that are going to get made. This week we’ll be eating:
- Huevos rancheros, yogurt
- Tuna bake, green beans
- Omelets with zucchini, onion, and cheese
- Spaghetti with store bought sauce ramped up with onions and zucchini, salad
What did you find at the farmers’ market this week?
