Happy Tuesday everyone (wait, are Tuesdays happy? I guess it doesn’t have the same ring as “TGIF!”)! I have quite a bit to do today but I wanted to post a quick update on a meal I whipped up for my family last week. Not unusually, I found myself inspired once again by the bounty at the Farmer’s Market (this time in Santa Monica) so I let the beautiful produce be the star of the show.
There have been some incredible baby fingerling potatoes at the markets lately, and they come in a variety of pretty colors. I picked up some pink ones but you can’t really see the colors in these photos, unfortunately. I bet some of you are thinking, “potato pizza??” but let me assure you that the creaminess of these fingerlings go so well with a crispy, whole-wheat crust, and all it needs is a smear of herbed cream cheese and a grating of sharp parmesan to bring it all together. A drizzle of homemade pesto and some fresh rosemary never hurt anything either:). It’s a carb-lovers dream come true, I tell ya!
Bloomsdale spinach sauteed with garlic and olive oil:
Beautiful sweet mini-peppers stuffed with jalapeno/cilantro chicken sausage and roasted- such a simple dish but SO good!
What’s been your favorite Farmer’s Market purchase this season?
