One of the fringe benefits of having a puppy, besides the tail wags and snuggling of course, is the early rising. On some mornings I will admit it feels like an absolute curse, especially with the rain and gloom we've been having. But on farmer's market mornings I am so happy that Roscoe wakes me up with plenty of time to spare for the opening of the market - specifically since the best produce goes fast.
I picked up some beets which I plan on cooking up along with their vibrant greens, some asparagus, leeks, and a cucumber (the biggest I've ever seen).
Any suggestions for out-of-the-box ideas for the asparagus and one of the leeks?
The other leek, beets, and cucumber are already spoken for!
