|Thursday trip to the market|
We’re doing that thing again, the one where we spend the summer eating only fresh food produced within a 10-mile radius of our house and what we forage from our own garden [queue the laugh track for that last part, not even I can say it with a straight face].
I recently read an excellent piece of advice posted by

Yesterday was the Skaneateles Farmer’s Market and here is the resulting simple meal:
|Feta and Spinach Burgers
Feta & Spinach Burgers
1 October Rose Farm egg (our girls have mysteriously suspended laying at the moment)
1 pound Byrne Black Angus beef
2 cups chopped Elderberry Pondspinach
2 cloves Good Karma Russian Red Garlic, diced (we’re down to our last bulb from the Fall harvest and eager for the new stuff to come in!)
4 ounces crumbled feta (comment below if you know a local source)
Directions: Mix ingredients; form into patties; throw on the grill. Top with slices of Horsford Farms onion and place on a SkaneatelesBakery roll; serve with a side of Navarino Orchard pickled tomatoes.

And, continuing in that spirit of preparedness, I rolled a few meatballs after dinner for today’s TGIF bento box:
