So, after our little trip to the farmer’s market, we wrapped up the grocery shopping at Sprout’s. We planned out our meals, but I won’t commit them to the blog because:
- I like the element of surprise..
- It’s subject to change without notice. 😀
We ended up with mostly organic food this week. You really can tell the difference with certain things. Take, for instance, the grass fed beef we got. It’s a flank steak.. not really the most tender piece of meat, but still.. this was much more tender than an ordinary flank steak. The flavor was great! Much more pronounced. I feel like all beef should taste like that.
Tonight’s meal was fairly elaborate. We had Grilled Flank Steak with Mushrooms and Onions (sauteed in white wine).. asparagus with a loose hollandaise sauce because I added a litttttttle too much butter. (Still fabulous)… And some fingerling potatoes, smashed slightly, cooked in bacon fat with some cippolini onions and of course bacon bits.
I would like to point out that spell check suggested that I perhaps meant crippling onions. Clearly spell check does not have a very refined palate.
When describing it above, it sounds like we ate a ton of food, but it wasn’t that heavy. This was the first time that we’d eaten purple potatoes. They’re slightly creamier in texture. Verdict: Delicious.
