Tomorrow, I shall go to the local farmer’s market for the first time this summer. I’m lucky, because it’s a mere 8 min. drive from my home–give or take. It pales in size and ethnic diversity to Kaukab’s (and by default, mine) weekly jaunts to the famed West Side Market in my hometown of Cleveland Ohio, but it’s my market, and it’s a good little market, at that. The farmers always bring their best and are happy to share stories and family recipes with me, and I with them.
I’ll be looking for some nice veggies to take home and roast. I’ll roast just about anything, really. As long as you’ve got olive oil, sea salt, and a pepper mill, you’re in business. Make sure your oven’s working. “Oh, onions, potatoes, green and yellow and red peppers, eggplant…here I come!” Pictures and recipes to follow–I promise.
