Farmers’ Market Fresh

One of my favorite Saturday morning activities is going with my family to the farmers’ market. The one we have in Kansas City in the River Market is just FULL of people, activities, and tons and tons of fresh food.

And just about every other vendor has huge bouquets of flowers for $8-$10 per bunch. I buy them every time…why wouldn’t I?

So when I got home, those flowers ended up in my very own mason jars, just like the ones I showed you last week at Rye Restaurant – perfect centerpiece!

One of the recipes I make almost every time we grill (you would think we’d get tired of it) is my Rosemary Roasted Potatoes. Here are my red potatoes from the market, ready to go.

I cut them into bite-sized pieces, seasoned them with kosher salt and season salt, tossed them with olive oil and some freshly-chopped rosemary from my backyard.

Roast them in a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes (toss them with a metal spatula every 5-10 minutes so they don’t stick). And they are pretty much even better than the steak my husband grills to go with them – not sure if he agrees with that statement.

Make these during your 4th of July celebrations this weekend, and I promise they’ll be a hit with your fam. Enjoy!
