Farmer's Market 2015, Trip #7

I went to the indoor farmer's market near work again this week, but I bought my vegetables from a different stand. I had never seen that lighter colored squash before and when I asked about it the woman told me it's called mediterranean squash and that supposedly it tastes even better than zucchini. Well, of course I had to get one and test that theory out for myself. I'll let you know what I think once I try it! Other than that, nothing else new this week; I've been on a carrot kick ever since Shawn picked some up the day his mom came to visit. They add a nice burst of color and crunch to our pasta and rice dishes. The other day I made a bechamel sauce and added some carrots, peas, ground turkey, and served it all with fusilli pasta for dinner... mmmmmm. Simple is best most of the time.

This week I bought: zucchini, mediterranean squash, heirloom tomatoes, potatoes, an onion, carrots, and (not pictured) pepper and onion sausage, and breakfast sausage.

  1. I've never heard of that type of squash, how neat!

  2. Me neither! I had some of it last night, and while I can't say that it tasted any different from regular zucchini, it was certainly a pretty color in contrast to the orange and yellow peppers we cooked it with!
