Market Favs

Getting to the market this year has been a little bit more of a challenge than it has in past summers while living in Davenport. We would go every weekend to get our food for the week! But now going downtown and fighting the crowds and figuring out all over again which people we like to buy for has been more of a challenge. But we did figure out that you can not waste anytime in the mornings if you want the best produce. We have to get up and go before it gets too crazy. Parking downtown can be a pain, but it is so worth it for all the yumminess. :) A new favorite food that we discovered this year is this beautiful garlic scape. Many of you probably know what it is, but it was new to me. At least I have never cooked with it. It is kind of a cross between a green onion and garlic. We chopped the whole thing up and sauteed it with veggies. It was delicious!!!...and no mess with trying to peel or mince fresh garlic.

Are you guys living in davenport now? My friend is looking for a good chiro for her 16 month old son who has been sick pretty much his whole life and has some nasty food sensitivities that they can't figure out. Shoot me an email if you get a chance!
