Market Report ...

Well I am a day late with my Saturday market report, but better late than never. Yesterday I picked up fresh from the garden lettuce, asparagus, cage free eggs, goat's cheese, spices and Sweet Baby Girl cherry tomato plants for my rooftop container garden. I will get some pics of my rooftop urban garden in the next couple of days.

Mariann of Lake Erie Creamery will be at the Coit Road Farmers Market all summer. Lake Erie Creamery, a small urban creamery in the City of Cleveland, specializes in their artisan goat's milk cheese. They took the Grand Prize for dairy in the 2008 Gallo Family Vineyards Gold Medal Awards.

Sunday Supper was baked Salmon, steamed asparagus and a nice toss salad.

Fresh-from-the-garden lettuce

I coated the salmon with Hellman's mayo, sprinkled with seasoning and baked in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. The salad has hoop house tomatoes, feta cheese and walnuts with a Country Dressing adapted from Williams-Sonoma kitchen library.

Country Dressing Recipe

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. Tonn's Wildflower honey (Walnut Creek, Ohio)
Salt, to taste
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Stir together garlic, honey and salt. Add vinegar and oil, whisk vigorously until well blended. Let stand at least 10 minutes to allow flavors to marry.

Maryann I love anything with honey ... and this dressing is simple, just my style :)


Living in an apartment in the City can be a bummer in summer ... so when my landlord said yes to a rooftop container garden I was "jumping up and down" ... LOL ... if it does well this year I will expand next year.

Right now I have maters, peppers, basil and parsley. Start small, dream big :)

Yummy, that asparagus looks delicious and so does the salmon!

The salmon was farm-raised so it was just okay ... the veggies were fantastic :)
