Alaska Grown!

I finally got down to the South Anchorage Farmers Market (SAFM) today and was not disappointed! Fresh, certified organic (and not so organic) lovely produce from the valley. Lots of vendors selling not just produce, but cheese, honey, jams, bakery items, fresh breads, herbs and some lunch items like ribs and hot dogs. It was a lovely day and so much fun.
I scored fresh romaine, green leaf lettuce, kale, green cauliflower, radishes, tomatoes, parsnips, butter potatoes, beets, broccoli, arugula and dill. The dill smells incredible.
This next weeks menu's will include: a roasted beet and goat cheese salad, potato and kale soup, roasted parsnips and other root veggies with a pork roast, and yummy dill salmon and potatoes. I will figure out the rest!
But today we are heading out to Seward for a belated Labor Day weekend because Dick was sick last week and it rained. We also have a funeral (sort of but not really) to attend there tomorrow. The day is too lovely to waste being indoors! Back east we call this Indian Summer. Here's is just a welcomed blessing!
