Market Stuff for August 24.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with:

Rosa Bianca Italian eggplant, sungold cherry tomatoes, sweet banana peppers, jalepenos, bell peppers, carola and fingerling potatoes, hard red winter wheat.

We LOVE pickled banana peppers and I do it the lazy way in the fridge: for 1 qt  of pickled peppers I use 2 c water, 1/3 to 1/2 c white wine vinegar/apple cider vinegar mix and 2 or so Tb sea salt. They’re ready in 4 days-ish. Clearly I don’t really have an actual recipe. I like them on my salads and Shane puts them on pizza and nachos. Alas…the vast and deep canyon between our eating styles….and he would love these if only I would make them – they do look amazing: Cheesy Stuffed Banana Peppers. 

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:

flap steak, philly steak, ground beef, stew beef, short ribs, cube steak, osso bucco, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones. We’ll be restocked on cuts next week.

Ground beef special this weekend – Buy 5 lbs, get 1 lb free and ***short ribs 20% off and BOGO bags of soup bones.

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.85/lb), and almost half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $466. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.

See you tomorrow! Come make fun of me while I freeze to death in the 70 degrees.

Market Stuff for August 17.

 

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with:

Rosa Bianca Italian eggplant, watermelons,  sungold cherry tomatoes, sweet banana peppers, jalepenos, green bell peppers, carola and fingerling potatoes, cucumbers, hard red winter wheat.

I made this healthier eggplant parmesan in the instant pot (10 minutes!) and it was really good.  The eggplant was really creamy and tender. The Rosa Biancas don’t have the bitter taste that regular purple eggplants do and I prefer the texture. I used this sauce recipe – fast & easy, and much more delicious than jarred sauce. And the carolas are the perfect size for these Bacon Blue Cheeseburger Potato Skins 🙂

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:

flap steak, philly steak, ground beef, stew beef, short ribs, cube steak, osso buccco, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones.

Market Stuff for August 3.

 

That is an adorable 25 year old pony nose that doesn’t look a day older than when I bought him 16 years ago. Don’t you just want to smooch it!!

That is a bomb-ass watermelon I cut today. I guess I should have opened with this one since I’m trying to sell them…you can see where my priorities are 🙂

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow.

I have the piel de sapo melons again, and watermelons.  They’re REALLY GOOD. A few tomatoes, nice big Carola baking potatoes and Red Thumb fingerlings, a few banana peppers, cucumbers; zephyr squash, lemon squash, hard red winter wheat.

I put 2 gallon bags of piel de sapo melons in the freezer for smoothies and I’m going to do the same with watermelon and cucumbers. I love them in smoothies and it’s so much tastier than grocery store fruit.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:

filet, sirloin steaks, flat iron, flap steak, philly steak, ground beef, stew beef, short ribs, cube steak, osso buccco, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones.

Last night lightning struck just a few feet away from where I was feeding the horses and set the grass on fire. It also burned up and exploded a bunch of stuff in our house and elsewhere all at the same time. Crazy. That’s the second time lightning has struck almost right at my feet while I was with the horses. Third time is the charm!

See you tomorrow 🙂
