Spin the Wheel of Produce!
Spin the Wheel of Produce!

The Mix School-a-Palooza tour wrapped up Saturday, but obviously my brain is still spinning like the Mix Prize Wheel! I found a terrific article on the New York Times a while back and have been meaning to share it with my fellow foodies and Market at the Square patrons! I tried to get all fancy with a graphic to click on, but alas – I’m a foodie, not a techie. So click HERE for the article.

Not sure what to do with those beets? Tired of zucchini bread? (not sure how THAT could happen) This recipe generator links produce available at this point of the season along with herbs and a method of cooking, and gives you a great recipe!

I’m going to have to try it with eggplant…I’m lost beyond eggplant parm.

Last Saturday was a GREAT day of shopping, with big crowds and gorgeous (cool) weather. I bought:

english muffin bread (addiction)
butternut squash
spaghetti squash
yellow squash (noticing a trend here?)
green beans
kale
golden beets
red and green peppers
sweet corn
DUCK EGGS!!

Yes, Moore Family Farm had DUCK EGGS this week! I’ve heard that they are delicious and rich and incredible, so now I can find out for myself.

And beets! I’m suddenly hooked on beets with goat cheese (recipe is a few blog entries back).

Join me this Saturday at the Urbana Market at the Square, which runs through November 2nd. Sunny and 75 this weekend? Sounds good to me!
