Produce Market

Now that garden produce is getting going, there's a produce market over in the nearby bigger town twice a week. Earlier this week, Older Son and I stopped at it, and went a little wild (for us). Here's the photo evidence. First, the whole gang:

Sweet potatoes:

New potatoes:

Summer squash (zucchini, yellow, and a hybrid that is a cross between the two - half yellow and half green!):

A big green pepper and a couple of jalapenos:

A couple of tomatoes:

A couple of onions:

A couple of peaches (there were three, but I ate one, it was good!):

One more look at the whole thing, happy eating!

I've enjoyed Pioneer Woman's website, including the recipes. So today I set out to make her recipe for "Buttered Rosemary Rolls, since I had a few leftover frozen rolls, AND some fresh rosemary ready to use. I'm having lots of fun watching my basil and rosemary grow in my kitchen window.
I set them to thaw in the cast iron skillet (plus a few extra in another pan) ...
... and got some butter out to soften.
Here they are risen, and prepared for the oven with melted butter, fresh rosemary and some salt. (Her recipe calls for sea salt, but I just sprinkled on some kosher salt, since it's a little bit coarse.) I left the extra pan plain, with just some butter on top.
Here they are, fresh out of the oven. Yum!
Me fixing my first (*ahem*) roll to try.
The skillet of rolls after older Son and I lit into 'em! Will sure make these again. :)
