The Neighborhood Farm spread of fresh greens

Today was the day.  Opening day of the Needham Farmers Market.  I’ve been working on this for two years so it was a really special to see it all come together.  The vendors had a successful day, the weather was stellar and everything went according to plan.  Best part of all, I now have some locally grown meat and produce to enjoy in the coming days.

Sunday~ Grilled salmon picked up at the farmers market.  We used a lemon garlic rub on the salmon fillets and grilled them.

Monday~ Beef hotdogs from Foxboro Cheese/Lawton Family Farm.  Real beef, no nitrates or nitrites and the farmer said I will see real meat when we bite into the hot dog.  “Not a pink circle” Farmer Ed Lawton had a lot to say about the meat raised on his farm and I expect to pick up a lot more this season. He also sells raw milk at his farm if you are looking for it.

Tuesday~ Teriyaki Salmon Burger.  They were a hit last week so we got some more since they were on sale.  We mixed up our own tartar sauce for the topping.  Just a little mayo and some relish.  I get relish from Whole Foods since it’s nearly impossible to find relish at a regular grocery store without high fructose corn syrup.

Wednesday~ Pulled Pork Sandwiches.  I’m pulling out the crockpot and working on a list of favorite recipes to utilize the crock pot in the summer.  There is no reason to put this great task-maker away, especially when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen in the hot summer season.

Thursday~ C.O.R.N….Clean-Out-Refrigerator-Night

Friday~ Pizza night!  I’ll be sharing this week what pizza night means to our family and share a great new product we reviewed, Summit Pasta sauce.  Did you know you can get 6 vegetables into a sauce that kids will love?!

It’s your turn…what is on your meal plan for the week?

    Found you via the blog hop. I love using my crock pot, especially in the summer. I use it 2-3 times a week almost every week and it's a great time saver. Plus, here in TX, it's almost a must to keep the house cool!

    Oh, how I wish I could get into meal planning! I just don't seem to be organized enough. I just peek in the freeaer and fix whatever sounds good and cooks quickly. Tsk..I am better than this, I think I need intervention! LOL!
    Huge green hugs,
