Farmer's Market Day

Today was Farmer's Market Day once again.  I still had a lot of food leftover from last week, but this week, Page Bison was here, which meant I had to buy a bunch of bison for meals.  We eat a lot of bison when there is no game meat largely because it's better for you and we just like the taste.  I think it tastes better than beef.

Anyway, bison aside, I picked up some more sugar snap peas, snow peas, shell peas, garlic, cauliflower, salad mix, English cucumbers, regular cucumbers, basil, bread, and probably some other things, but I can't remember at the moment. One thing that's awesome is that the Flathead cherries are in!  Actually, it's early for Flathead cherries, but these cherries grow along the Flathead river in Paradise Valley.  And they're simply awesome cherries.

I picked up 3 pound of the cherries, which seems a bit extreme until you taste them.  They are awesome!
Made potato salad today.  The recipe I use mixes local herbs such as oregano and marjoram and uses local red, purple and Yukon gold potatoes.  Try it out.  It's really good.
