The real challenge is getting the foods we need in the correct combination to manage our blood sugars, energy levels and hunger throughout the day, meaning we really need to focus on getting protein AND fiber every time we eat, especially at breakfast.

  • Martha’s Local Food

    Sunday family dinner was a Plymouth Farmers’ Market feast. We cooked out what my brother has come to call meatloaf burgers. Last night’s mix included ground pork from Brown Boar Farm, ground beef from Dufort farm, local eggs, local onion, bell pepper, stale bread, organic milk and seasoning. Local organic squashes went on the grill. Indoors, I boiled local organic beets, peeled and tossed with a bit of Omega olive oil, local organic corn boiled for just 3 minutes, local organic potatoes made into a salad with a little fennel, hard boiled eggs, oil and vinegar. The final piece was a salad of local organic greens, local organic tomatoes and cukes, very lightly dressed. I so enjoy feeding my family a meal like this and being grateful to all the farmers that are present at our table. All of our produce farmers were included in this meal. Thank you farmers.

    TRY THIS | Cold soups are an elegant way to start a summer meal. With the abundance of cucumbers this week, cold cucumber soup is an easy choice.

    Peel and seed cucumbers. Place in an appropriate sized pan, cover with stock or water, add sliced mild onions to pot, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook till very tender, about 1/2 hour. Season with salt and pepper to taste, add local fresh chopped herbs, puree with some some cream to desired texture. Thinly sliced raw cucumber 1/2 moons with the skin on make a nice garnish, as would fresh dill and or fennel.

  • Flapdoodle Bags

    I’m working on green this week.

    DID YOU KNOW | All of my bags are one of a kind. No one else will ever have the same bag as you do!

  • Plato’s Harvest Organic Farm

    “I’ll never eat another chicken again, and I need two more of them this weekend!” That’s the phone call I received on Saturday morning, after selling a new customer a chicken the previous Thursday. In two days she was a convert. I always tell people they’ll never buy chicken from the store again. I think they usually figure it’s just a line, and maybe it is, but it’s true! Same with the eggs, you won’t be able to eat a store egg again. My chickens are raised on pasture and certified organic grain, and lots of produce from the farm.

    I’ll be bringing certified organic sweet corn!, a smattering of field tomatoes, kale, chard, beets, carrots, eggs, chicken, new potatoes, garlic, huge, green sweet onions, cucumbers, and summer squash. Melons aren’t quite there, or peppers, but soon. And, for all those that ask every week, here’s what’s not in season – rhubarb, strawberries, asparagus, broccoli, leeks, celery. Know your farmer, don’t take food from strangers!

    I’m raising six pigs this year that are going for slaughter early September. They are raised on pasture and certified organic grain. I’ll be selling half pigs, all custom butchered however you like. Ask me about it at the market.

    Thanks for your support.
