Thanks to Sechelt Farmers Market for a great Spring-time Sunday dinner

Here’s another sign of Spring – the first day of the Sechelt Farmers Market. I’ve been watching the calendar for the past few weeks, anxiously waiting for this day to arrive. 

I have a cold frame and if I can find a few lettuce seedlings to tuck into the warmed soil,  I’ll be noshing fresh garden salads in just a few weeks.  

I was in luck, and as you can see from the picture there was lots to choose from. Naturally I ended up with more than a few seedlings – two different varieties of lettuce, some arugula, kale and Pak Choi – but my container garden is well on its way.

But I also came home with much more than a few seedlings. Tonight’s dinner has taken on a special Spring time theme inspired by a few more of my treasured finds at the market.  

We’re starting off with some fresh Camembert made from local goats milk and then a flavourful micro-greens salad. The little jar of pesto that I found,  made from wild nettles and cashews, will go perfectly with fresh asparagus and nugget potatoes. Then I’ll  fire up the BBQ and cook an old favourite – beer-can chicken. For dessert… fresh strawberry cobbler. Now that’s a great spring-time Sunday dinner – thanks Sechelt Farmers Market for the inspiration!!
