This Week's Specials!

Hi! Just a reminder that when words are shown in a different color, it means a link has been created for you to conveniently click on and see the recipe or additional information. :-) The recipes in the right column under the word LABELS are also clickable.

Joann and Rolo searched the Plant City Farmers Market high and low for all kinds of goodies, in addition to what is growing on the farm. Jack and I saw all kinds of delicious fruits and veggies. There were also some diligent souls picking the last of the green beans for the big U-Pick - it's nearly over so don't delay!

Will you be seeing Rolo on Spring Hill Drive tomorrow? If so, you'll want to be there bright and early to bring home tender and crisp, exquisite Asparagus! Gorgeous! Try it steamed with dinner tonight (click here for a meal idea).

Our big special of the week is beautiful, tender Yellow Summer Squash! Fixed as a side dish medley or baked in a cozy casserole for this week-end's rainy, cooler weather, yellow squash is low calorie, contains trace minerals and vitamins.

Low in Saturated Fat and Sodium, summer squash is a good source of Thiamin, Niacin and Pantothenic Acid, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Copper and Manganese.
