My first purchase was a few Michigan peaches, which I could smell two booths away. Although I had imagined grilled peaches with sour cream and brown sugar, hubby saw them and insisted I include them in his lunch box during the week. Oh, well, grilled dessert will have to wait until next week.
My second purchase was a pound of blue potatoes. Although I have eaten blue potato chips, I had never seen fresh ones available at the market or grocery store. When I saw baby carrots in the next booth, I knew I would be roasting veggies for dinner.
I peeled and chopped everything to a relatively uniform dice and tossed them into a bowl. I drizzled with garlic olive oil, three cloves of garlic finely minced, salt, pepper, 1/4 of a diced onion, and Italian seasoning. I tossed to coat and poured onto a foil lined cookie sheet. I roasted them at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
Here is what they looked like . . .
I served them with spicy cheddar chicken fingers. Hubby was thrilled!
Here is my plan for the rest of the week:
Monday breakfast - cottage cheese and cantaloupe
Monday lunch - leftover chicken fingers, leftover carrots and potatoes
Monday dinner - baked ham slice, stuffed mushrooms, baked apples

Saturday breakfast - pancakes with cherry compote, turkey sausage
Saturday lunch - EAT OUT (Julie has a curriculum meeting all day)

My baked apple recipe is from a cookbook titled Cooking From Quilt County by Marcia Adams. It is a wonderful book filled with recipes and beautiful images of the Amish and Mennonite Communities. I highly recommend it.
