Farm-Fresh Dinner

I told you about those radish sprouts I discovered on Saturday and about our field trip to Heritage Prairie Farm earlier that morning.  Well, one thing led to another, and we had a delicious, farm-fresh dinner on Saturday night, and I just had to share it.  Or share a photo of it, anyway.

Here it is.

That's the smoked Gouda bread we bought from the market, and the locally raised pork chop glazed with the pumpkin honey mustard.  And there's our radish sprout salad, which included apples from last fall's harvest and a couple of baby shallots from our yard and was served warm with pumpkin seed oil and apple cider vinegar.  The roasted potatoes were not actually fresh from the farm.  They are grocery-store potatoes that have been in our pantry for a while now. 

But whatever. Three quarters of the meal was farm fresh, and it was outstanding.  And, it came together pretty quickly, too.  The only thing missing was a pie for dessert.  If only I'd been thinking ahead!

I can't wait to see what our hard work in the garden can bring to the kitchen table for the rest of the summer.
