Farmers’ Market Dinner
Y’all know that we love Huntsville’s Greene Street Market. It’s every Thursday, and on the Thursdays that we’ve been in town this summer, we’ve made a real effort to go. It’s just a great way to connect with people from your community (and to come away with amazing food).
Yesterday, we headed down to stroll the market, where Lila had a popsicle:
…and we picked up tomatoes (regular and cherry), bread, cheese, peaches, and an onion. We also bought a giant iced tea (served in a mason jar, of course ), and a chocolate chip cookie. Why not?
When we got home, we put together this easy dinner. Our salad was cherry tomatoes, diced onion, balsamic vinegar, and big chunks of the cheese we bought. The cheese was interesting—it was meant to be cooked, so I browned it in a pan with olive oil before cutting it into chunks. The frying really brought out its flavors. It was delicious in the salad!
And just so we’re keeping things honest around here, after my long post bragging about how willing Lila is to try new foods, here was her reaction to my urging her to try the cheese:
Oh well. You win some, you lose some.
Have a great weekend!
