I missed going to the Farmer’s Market for a couple of weeks -
[although I did visit the one in Montgomery and got some gorgeous zinnias!]
So it was fun to walk down to our local market this week and pick up a few things –
We ended up with striped zucchini, bell pepper, new potatoes, okra, tomatoes…
And some rosemary bread we picked up at The Chattanooga Market over the weekend.
After our long walk [2.5 miles - ha]…
in the heat…
we decided to just have
bacon and tomato sandwiches for dinner that night.
And, let me tell you – the rosemary bread made a delicious addition to the flavor.
But the next night we re-purposed some rotisserie chicken
[added a little garlic, butter, and brown sugar and warmed it slowly]
and enjoyed it with roasted new potatoes
[in the crockpot all day with just a bit of water,]
[layer thin slices of squash, onion, and tomatoes –
cook in the microwave then add grated cheese on top – so good!]
and fried okra
[just toss in some cornmeal before frying on the stove.]
We were STUFFED.
But I still had veggies to use…
So Saturday morning I whipped up a
nice hearty vegetable frittata
for my Artsy Bible Study Group –
I sautéed the [chopped] bell pepper,
squash and cubed new potatoes with onion and a tomato
[from the plant right outside my kitchen door!]
Then I poured over some beaten eggs and cooked until set.
Added a little cheese on top.
Again, a favorite of ours.
– I can remember stirring up this little dish on evenings when we’d come in late from a camping trip [or other travel] and need something quick to eat that was made from the stuff we had on hand
[I often use frozen potato cubes in it.]
I think the gals in our group liked it -
I know I did ...
