Friday Farmers Market

After a long summer of teaching, wedding planning, and traveling, I was so excited to get a chance to make it to a market today. I have been taking it easy over the last couple weeks, and that includes a lazy friday of baking, some writing, and a trip to a nearby farmers market. My favorite market is quite a bit smaller than some of the others in the city, but it has a lot of great produce and a stand with organic, pastured meat. They also allow dogs, which is relatively unusual in this area, so I get to bring Newton with me. Always a bonus.

Today’s mini haul:

Closer look at the meat hiding in the back:

Aside from bacon, I have never cooked pork before. I’ve been wanting to try out a slow-cooked roast, so I’m really excited about this one!

The kale should last me a few days. Saut?ed with some?bacon, it easily makes for my favorite breakfast. A relatively small trip this week, but I will probably raid my parents’ garden tomorrow when we go over to visit. Thanks Mom!

Now to look up some pork shoulder recipes!

  • Hi,
    I’m writing for two reasons, one to let you know we make a nightshade free meal and I’m writing to ask for your help in spreading the word about the freeze dried backpacker meals that my son and I make. Our company is called Paleo Meals To Go and we’ve been in business about 11 months, although I took off two months in Dec/Jan to be at the hospital for five weeks and at my mom’s home for an additional three weeks following a surgery, so really only about 9 months in business. We’re based in Denver and it’s just the two of us working on this business idea.

    Our meals are formulated to adhere to the general principles of the Paleo diet and we’ve had really excellent feedback and comments from reviewers and our customers, but I still don’t think most folks in the Paleo community know about us. Would you be willing to review our meals if I sent you some free samples? Or would you be interested in blogging about us or posting on your forum? Any mention of us on your site would really help inform the Paleo community that they have a healthy, Paleo option when they are hiking, traveling, competing, or even when they are too busy or can’t leave the office to get a Paleo meal. One man wrote to us and said they are perfect for long airplane rides because he can always get hot water from the flight attendant and that’s all our meals require. And many people who are not on, or who have never even heard of the Paleo diet, are interested in our products because our meals are free from additives, preservatives, and cheap filler ingredients. We use meat, vegetables and spices! Plain and simple.

    We’re still operating in the red and any help with spreading the word to all the hunters, Paleo folks, backpackers and others would be greatly appreciated since our advertising budget is negligible.

    If you have time and are interested, I’d be very happy to talk to you on the phone whenever convenient for you. My number is 224-725-3652 and our website is
