Farmer Market Wednesday - (Done last Saturday)


The weather here has been so hot these last couple weeks... Our tempertures have hit well into the 100 degree mark.  The other day as I drove back from the city my car thermometer read 110.  Needless to say with tempertures like this I have not been spending much time outdoors except early in the morning and sometimes later in the evening.

I did manage to go into the Farmers market last weekend and check out what they may have.  Believe it or not I purchased more peaches.  I know I had already bought 2 bushel boxes in Tennessee and though after I had put those away that I would not want to look at another peach yet, I  could not resist when I saw them.  I love a good peach for a snack and I did want to put some jam up in pint jars so .... well you know the rest of the story.   I finished working them up today.  I had plenty to even put a few more quart bags in the freezer for cobblers.  There is nothing like a good peach cobbler in the middle of winter. 

I also ventured by my old farmers market here in the small town I live in.  I had been there a couple times earlier in the year yet the usuals that had been there before were not there, or so I thought.  I was delightlfully surprised to find the Pepper lady back.  Can you beleive I can never remember her name.  I just refer to her as the pepper lady.. Its terrible I know... I chatted with her for some time and of course purchased all of the shishito peppers she had.  These are little japanese peppers that are simply heavenly cooked up in olive oil with some garlic. 
I decided though to prepare me a stir fry for lammas with red bell peppers, the shishito, garlic, red onion, zuchini, and thinly sliced new potatoes.  It was delicious.. And for desert... of course I had some fresh peach tarts.... There is nothing more flavorable than fresh fruit and vegetables.  I can hardly wait to go back this Saturday... blessings.

I've never heard of those peppers , but the stir-fry looks delish and peach tarts sound yummy.
We had a few days of cooler weather over the weekend , but today was muggy and hot again. So glad Fall is just around the corner.
