This morning we visited our first farmers’ market of the season, the Mineral Point Farmers’ Market. We got some spinach, leeks, butter lettuce, and asparagus as well as two packages of bacon (don’t judge) and all beef hotdogs for grilling out from Marr’s. It was wonderful to see familiar faces again and to meet some new ones.
After the market, we visited our friends Krista Loomans and Aaron Weaver at the Green Lantern Gallery. They are participating in Clay in May, a pottery tour in Mineral Point going on this weekend. Looking at all the elegant and whimsical dishware made me very hungry so we went home soon after purchasing a couple of things and prepared a lovely springtime lunch below.
Pasta: Gnocchi, Bel Gioso parmesan, garden oregano
Dessert: Garden rhubarb strawberry crumble
