First summer farmers market meal

Last Friday was the opening of the Marshfield farmers market for the summer. We bought lobster,strawberries(the ripest red I have ever seen and asparagus and some lemon marmalade.The lobster was so tender and we roasted the asparagus and the strawberries just as is. A perfect summer meal.

Slow food dinner

We hosted our slow food group potluck the other night unfortunately I was to busy to get any real good pictures of the food so my words will have to suffice. I made clam chowder and steamers,Then our guests all bought food, One bought homemade prosciutto made with local pork,(and people think i am crazy with the cheese) We will talk about that later. We had an asparagus pizza,roasted asparagus and a broccoli salad,buckwheat with sour cream,an Egyptian meat pie with filo dough,a dip with eggplant and roasted red peppers on cheesy bread,strawberry pie and strawberry tart and just plain just picked strawberries (yum) A Lithuanian cake made with polenta really moist and yummy and hen of the wood mushrooms found growing out of season in an undisclosed place that were marinated.We had some locally produced wine and a good time was had by all.
