So Fresh, so easy, so quick!! No reason no to try! Go to a farmers market with $15. Buy what looks good to you. Take it home and eat it! I mashed these red potatoes with a tablespoon of butter, sprinkle of Garlic, Sazon and adobo while I oven roasted the corn on the cobb for 35 minutes. I made a slice of bacon cut it up and added the green beans. I served it with raw red bell pepper and a small piece of salmon, wild caught. The corn was so sweet you didn’t need to add a thing to it! It was satisfying down to the bones! Try it! The blueberries were outa this world! I eat them in oatmeal everyday! Sometimes twice a day!!
