The sun was out on a brisk Saturday morning while the Corvallis community purchased veggies, chatted with farmers and even observed a llama parade (only in Corvallis, right!?). While I perused the flowers and gazed at the perfectly ripe strawberries, I began brainstorming recipe ideas and thinking about how I could incorporate all of the fresh produce into my weekly meals. Here is a photo essay of my Saturday morning adventure, which will likely become a weekly outing for me. Also, a special thanks to my friend Jeanna for the awesome pictures!!!
Overall, the trip was a success as I ended up coming home with a little over a pound of rhubarb and a pint of strawberries. I am thinking of making some sort of strawberry rhubarb compote or possibly incorporating the two ingredients into a pie. I took a gander at Pinterest this morning and found some great pins using these two items. From Bon Appetit, I found 20 Ways to Eat Strawberries and from Cooking Classy, I found a s’mores recipe incorporating strawberries (yum!). Stay tuned to see what I end up making!!
