A Tomato Day

Tomatoes

Going Local: Rhaya’s Day 2

I really missed my usual cup of coffee this morning, but instead had another raspberry mint smoothie and an apple from the Farmers Market (because I read somewhere that an apple is a good alternative to coffee — something about the crunch helps to wake you up).

For lunch I had a big Caprese salad (tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese from Traders Point Creamery) and an afternoon snack of green beans.

By dinnertime, I was in the mood for something a little different so I pulled out the pasta I bought at the Farmers Market. Ruth, an Amish woman, makes the pasta from local organic eggs (yolks), flour, water and salt. She makes all her pasta for the entire year in the springtime — talk about planning ahead! I topped Ruth’s pasta with Quick Cooked Tomato Sauce (A recipe from Victoria at Going Local), eggplant, and some raw milk cheese from Traders Point.
