Farmers Market Haul Number Two

How is it the last week of August? Today, there's a slight coolness in the air and the clouds have an autumn feel to them. The ground is damp from a much needed rainstorm. Instead of welcoming the season change and the temperature drop with open arms, I feel sad. That's my feeling today. Also exhaustion. Intense exhaustion that cannot be put into words. But somehow, I managed to cheer up a bit when I meandered the farmers market this afternoon. I picked up these beauties seen above, plus a whole pastured chicken and a half flat of blueberries. We'll eat well this week. And I'll be happy again.

Pasta with Basil and Carrot Top Pesto- I've made a version of carrot top pesto before and blogged about it here, in case you're interested. This time, I'm leaving out the wild leeks. I'll probably serve this with a simple tomato salad.

Roasted Chicken with Fingerling Potatoes- My body has been craving animal protein lately and I'm listening to it. So I bought the highest quality chicken I could find  and I'm going to use every part of it. I'll serve it with lots of braised kale.

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup- The celery and carrots from the market are going to make this soup even better. I'll also throw in a bunch of fresh parsley and use the celery tops for extra greens.

Quiche- I'm thinking a classic spinach and gruyere version with lots of caramelized onions. Served with steamed broccolini.

Herbed Lentils and Roasted Eggplant- This recipe is one of my favorites from Plenty. And I have all the ingredients on hand to make it at the moment, so it's happening.

Zucchini Bread- I'm still on the search for a really good zucchini bread recipe. One that is Hazel approved.
