My Yummy Local Life

{June 2, 2013}   No box- Scottsdale Farmer’s Market

So this is week one with no CSA box until summer crops start to come in. We were down in Scottsdale on Saturday (me to work and hubby to play) so I sent him over to the Scottsdale Old Town Farmer’s Market to see what we could find.


He reports that there was an epic line around the big veggie booth and he didn’t want to wait, but he did get a bunch of fresh tomatoes and also some bratwurst and goat steaks.

This will be our first time trying goat, but we’ve got a friend who says if you like lamb, goat is better…he’s going to make it in some kind of curry.

Also on the menu this week will be brats and onions on the grill. While we have the grill going were going to prep some other veggies for the week (squash left from the last box and onions for pizza). We’re also going to grill the pizza dough for this week so we just have to melt cheese on our pizza the next day and have the oven it for much less time.

I’m going to get some raw milk tomorrow and try again with the mozzarella cheese making.

We’re having French onion soup sandwiches today for dinner. So yummy and so much easier to eat than the real thing.

For the rest of the week were going to lean on some of our favorite go to meals: swai with quinoa, eggs and taters (man food night), and veggie pasta.

Oh and these strawberry grilled cheeses are definitely on my lunch menu. Hubby’s loss for not wanting fruit on his savory food!

Next week were going to check out the verde valley farmers market, which just opened this past weekend and see what kind of local fare they have around.

Now I’m going to drool over the other people who still have boxes over at In Her Chucks. Check it out! And have a yummy week!


Oooohhh…goat steaks! I have yet to eat goat. Going to have to give it a try.

And will definitely be noshing on some strawberry grilled cheese. Yum!

Thanks for sharing and linking up 🙂

I didn’t try the goat yet either cuz I’ve been sick 😦 hopefully some is still around once I am back to eating real food… That strawberry grilled cheese was awesome though!

Bummer 😦 Hope you feel better soon!

Let me know what you do with that goat. I bought some from the same guy and haven’t tried it yet. He told me to make it as I would lamb.

My hubby made this with the goat:

I’m going to have the leftovers for lunch today (since I was sick when he made it), but he said it was great hot and cold the next day too.

Sounds delish
