I swapped to get the tomatoes so I could make gazpacho. Tomorrow at the Hospital market, I am hoping to find bell peppers. The only missing ingredient to make my gazpacho recipe.

Check out these cylindra beets. They created a bunch of comments at the pick up site today.

As for what came home today, quite a bit of it made it into dinner. Like my salad.

Sliced tomatoes, goat cheese, basil, salt, pepper and olive oil. Simple, lovely, summer on a plate.

Oh, and of course, we devoured all six ears of corn.

Corn on the cob, a salad, and a simple pounded chicken breast. Dinner. Loving summertime. And, Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op.

  1. We got tomatoes this week too, first time in 7+ months. Delightful! My kids aren’t into fresh tomatoes, so they are ALL MINE.
