One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is to go to the Alemany Farmer's Market. This is the best place in San Francisco to purchase organic and locally grown produce for a fraction of what you would pay at Wholefoods (aka whole pay check). I stopped by here last Saturday to pick up some groceries for Easter dinner. As I mentioned and demonstrated in a previous blog post I do not really cook. What I do instead is prep, cut and assemble. If I lived in a smaller apartment and if I were single I think I would store shoes in my stove instead of using it to "cook" food. I must admit I occasionally like to use my oven to roast veggies -but I could probably accomplish this on a toaster oven. Luckily for me my friends and husband understand my cooking deficits so when we have dinner parties they bring the main course and I happily create the sides. Below are some of the dishes I made (aka cut and assembled) for our Easter potluck dinner.
|Alemany Farmer's Market Produce|
|Blood Orange & Blood Lime Salad. Brush some extra virgin olive oil on the oranges, add pepper, sliced red onions, capers, and feta cheese.|
|Heirloom tomato salad with sliced smoked mozzarella and basil. Add some pepper and a sprinkle of kosher salt.|
|Strawberries are in season right now so instead of tomatoes add strawberries to your salad.|
|Baked fingerling potatoes with saffron and lemon rind.|
|White Covered Chocolate Strawberries. I heated the chocolate in the microwave. Find the simple recipe here.|
