Corn Succotash

Oh dear…has it really been almost two weeks since my last entry?
Busy, busy, busy…

Here is a corn succotash I made with tomatoes, cayenne and a bit of cream.
Topped it with sautéed fish fillet.
It was almost two weeks ago that I made this…may have been swai or catfish,

all I know is it was good :-)

Patty Pan, Goat Cheese on toast

Here is one of the first things I made with my farmers market bounty.
Sautéed Patty Pan Squash on toasted rounds of the multigrain baguette
with goat cheese and basil. I had this with left overs I had in the fridge
of a creamy tomato soup.

Farmers Market : this week's haul

As you all know I do love farmers markets and the Oak Park Market is a favorite. I always make Iron Creek Farm my first stop and I spiral out from there. The quality of their organic produce is outstanding. For those of you in the Chicago area you can find them at the markets in Green City/Lincoln Park, Wicker Park/Bucktown, Evanston and Northbrook in addition to Oak Park.

Above is photo of the wonderful items that came home with me this week. From left to right: Red Hen Bakery Multigrain Baguette, cantaloupe, blueberries, plums, patty pan, zucchini, summer squash, burpless cucumber, corn and eggplant.

This week I will try to take photos of my culinary adventures. No promises, just good intentions :-)
