Baby Bok Choy $1.00 a bunch

*Splurge Item: extra pound of white nectarines (picked these up for my mom)
*Spurge Item: Brentwood Cherry Jam from 3 French Hens
Minda and Julie (the owner's of 3 French Hens) are wonderful women who take so much care and pride into their artisanal jams and jellies. They support local farmers and use local ingredients as much as possible to give back to their community. Their jams and jellies are made in small batches seasonally, and can be purchased from their website. They also have baking mixes and rubs for sale. I, in no way, am being paid commission for promoting these ladies, I just want to share a great product and company with you.
My Meal Plan for this week includes
Sweet and Sour Meatballs from Jonesin' for Taste
Sautéed Bok Choy
with Lemon Dill Vinaigrette
Two more cherry recipes
Yes, I'm keeping these last two cherry recipes secret until they are up on the blog. Check back to see what I create.
Farmer's Market Friday #4
There was such a variety of posts to chose from this week, from tips for gardening with kids, recipes (straight from one reader's garden, I may add) and crafts that inspire and delight! Be sure you visit a few links and let them know you were there. These link-ups work best if we are spreading the blog love around. Have you added this link-up to your linky list yet?
This week's features
Easy Peasy Strawberry Cream Pie by Snapshots and Snippets
We had a problem with Amber's link so I wanted to be sure to feature her for those that didn't get to see her link and wanted to. She used fresh strawberries from her garden in this recipe. I am looking forward to trying this recipe this summer!
DIY Painted Kitchen Plates by My Pinterventures
I love this craft! My grandmother collected plates among other things, so this craft would have been right up her alley.
