Robin and I are BIG believers in buying local and supporting our local farmers. Even in the winter when the Saturday Farmers Market is closed. (Due to open the first part of April at 10th and Grove!) We shop wise! We check the labels! This breakfast was 100% local products. The sourdough bread from Boise; the bacon from Twin Falls; the potatoes from Burley and the eggs from Nampa. And it was scrumptious. Check this out!
Oh my, but this was a great dinner. I asked Robin this morning what she wanted for dinner and to my surprise she said steak. I was looking for a New York Strip steak or a Delmonico but could not find either one. So I got to very nice Rib-Eye steaks. And this was a perfect chance to try Sandi’s Ranch Dressing on a green salad. It replaces the original Ranch Dressing. This one has avocado and Greek yogurt. Very good. But here are two photos of the dinner. Then add to the dinner a fantastic glass of 2011 Ravenswood Winery Petite Sirah and you have an awesome dinner. I will post the salad dressing recipe tomorrow – it is also on my Facebook page. [Sandi’s Ranch Dressing. PDF format] Gut essen!
Yup, it’s Saturday and time to stop at the market. We needed some fresh vegetables and eggs. And I always stop at Rollingstone Chevre (see the link in the sidebar) and talk to Karen for a moment or two. My other routine is to stop in at Acme Bake Shop booth and get some their fresh baked sourdough. And Soraya said, “Bob. You must try this Potato Bread.” Now, Soraya has never misled us …. never. So I accepted her challenge and bought a loaf, and a loaf of sourdough also. Robin and I don’t normally eat white bread, but the Potato Bread is really good. Here are some photos of the bread this morning after I took it home and sliced it. Enjoy!
I did pick up some fresh vegetables. Turnips, garlic, beets, herbed goat cheese and fresh eggs. So it was not just a “bread run”, although my shopping bag looked that way. A good time at the market. I will hate to see it close later this fall.
