It’s almost Monday here in London, but I wanted to get this week’s Farmer’s Market post up before I went to sleep. This week is the one chance I’ll have to be “off” before classes start up again in 8 days time, and I want to take full advantage of it. Some relaxing, some reading, some long walks and of course- lots of cooking.

I started planning for that last one at the market this morning, where I got all those veggie bunches you see above. The purple sprouting broccoli was looking so lovely that I couldn’t resist it; I’ll probably roast it in the oven or throw it on a pizza. Parsley and herbs are of course not really veg in the “making a meal of me” sense, but you can bet I’ll be making use of them, too. I’ve already used some of the rosemary on a tasty flatbread, to be posted on Tuesday.

The Santa grape tomatoes are what I’m really looking forward to using since I love their flavour at this time of year. I’ve been craving some tasty Baked Feta lately, so I might prepare them with that, and serve over a salad. Also on my recipe radar, this week are The Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Bread, this Farro “Risotto” from 101 Cookbooks, and these Carrot Cupcakes from The Wednesday Chef. Too bad I didn’t buy any carrots this week!

What are you looking forward to cooking this week?

  1. This farmer’s market haul looks amazing. I look forward to what you’ll make from it. I stumbled across your blog a while ago and I’ve only just realised you too are in the UK. Yay! 🙂

  2. Aaah, farmer’s markets! How I miss these about where I live in France. I’m always jealous of my mother when she’s telling me about the market in my home town. That broccoli you have looks awesome too!

  3. Pode-se aprender algo novo aqui todos os dias. Eu sou um regular para a maioria desses blogs, mas ainda não sabia sobre um par deles. Neille Man Esmaria
