I do love farmer’s markets. Being outside and wandering from vendor to vendor is fun. This week I picked up peaches (to eat and for frozen yogurt), plums (delicious!), baby spinach (to throw into pasta sauce and for salads), and yellow wax beans.
I steam the beans while boiling new potatoes for parsley potatoes and baking lemon pepper chicken. The beans were dressed with walnut oil and a little salt and pepper while I drained the potatoes. The potatoes were tossed with margarine, parsley, salt, and pepper (parsley potatoes are a staple at family gatherings where my mother usually made them with maragrine-I am the same way with chocolate chip cookies).
Pat grew up disliking green beans and was skeptical of these but told me they ended up being delicious althought I think he liked the potatoes better.
