This will be the second
to last Wednesday Market…make use of it to pick up some ideas for mid-week meals. Parsons Farms have an abundance of produce right now…find the time to can, freeze, dry or pickle, you’ll be happy in the Winter seeing a pantry/freezer stocked! They still have plenty of peaches,tomatoes,peppers,zukes, green beans,corn, onions…and now the early fall apples and pears too.
Pasta is a quick easy dish, add any of the summer veggies for a nutritious plate of food. Try White Star’s recipe below:
