Weekend Ideas

The weekend is upon us and now is the time to get adventurous. Try and cook a new meal or plan easy ones for your week. Saturdays are good days to try and find a farmers market. Farmers markets are a good way to get into buying locally and seasonal, you may even have organic options. Meet your farmer or producer and ask questions. Try a new vegetable that you never used in a dish you are familiar with. If you see or buy something, and are interested in cooking with it or just want to know what dishes it is used in, ask me. I have tons of recipes and love sharing.
Another option for food adventure is get out of your comfort zone and try and Asian or Latin market. Most of these places have meats and fish, and produce you normally don't see in your big chain supermarkets. A lot of the ethnic markets have a deli or bistro where you can buy ready made food try a new dish.
Lastly, if you are going out to eat, try a new privately owned establishment or try a new ethnic cuisine. Open your food horizons, get adventurous, and build your taste palate!
