This morning, seeing as I am on vacation, I indulged myself in a springtime treat: a sunny morning walk through the Copley Square Farmers Market. Although it's early in the season, there was plenty of local goodness on offer.
The ultimate in fast food. In case you can't read the sign, this is the "Boston Goat Cheese Picnic" from Crystal Brook Farm in Sterling, MA. Each bag contains a delectable lunchtime menu: goat cheese with olive oil and herbes de provence, french bread, and trail mix, plus utensils and a $1 off coupon for your next purchase. A fabulous reason to forget your lunch!
The Atlas Farm stand was overflowing with the season's first produce, local and organic...
as was my kitchen table when I got home.
The basil will be planted, with hopes of better success than last year.
The kale will be sauteed with onions and garlic.
The strawberries will be gone by supper.
The rest, including the cilantro and jalapeno goat cheese--yum!--will provide delicious lunchtime salads for days to come.
Don't you just love spring?
