Below you will find a shopping list to take with you the market. This list is adapted to meet my family’s needs and how I altered the recipes. I have chosen 6 recipes that are easy and can be moved from the oven to my grill. If your grill does not have a temperature gauge, it might make this transition difficult, but you can always try. Please adapt these recipes to meet your needs- be flexible and try new things! Check your growing zone for availability, ensuring what is on your list is seasonally available. Above all… have fun and enjoy your local market.
When I am preparing my meals I also chop up snacks/sides for the week, salads for the week and seasonally available fruit. My family includes these at the table for sides and desserts. If you want to learn more, stop by the market this Saturday, July 30, for a meal planning demonstration at 9:00 and 11:00 near the Bridge Card booth!
