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!!

So Good it’s Wrong [Angus]

Where do i start? The Garlic Mashed Potatoes? the Bacon Green Beans? The Angus Roast?

Okay here goes…

Four Large Potatoes

Mash them, throw in a little butter a splash of milk and enough plain yogurt to to get the consistency your looking for. Season- salt ,pepper, garlic powder. Done.

Angus Chuck Roast

Roast that baby with 3 cloves of garlic, carrots, onion and musrooms. The longer the better.

Try a 3.5 LB piece of Angus seasoned with Salt and pepper.

Slow Cooker/Crock Pot – Insert Veggies, then Meat, Splash on some whostershire sauce. (Mix 2 tbs of water & 1 tbs cornstarch, throw that in too) Done.

Cook aprox. 6 hours on high. Taste the gravy, adjust seasoning at hour 5. Eat.

This one gets better each time you warm it up. I cooked mine overnight, day 3 was the best.

“You don’t eat no meat!?!”

The Green Grocer Chicago is awesome, friendly knowledgeable staff location is great parking was easy for me. What more can I ask???
Food that goes beyond the sell by date gets put on a cute table with a sign that says “Free, Honest”.  Loaves of french bread, veggies, you name it.

Kewl huh? I came home rinsed the plump  strawberries and popped one in my mouth. Why have I never had the pleasure of tasting you Mr. Strawberry? WHY!???!?

I have never tasted anything like it. *Cough* I ate half the pack. Every single bite of every single berry was sensuously delightful. They danced on my tongue.

Not Right, not right for the world to hide this burst of flavor from me my whole life. This experience coupled with the farmers market in the UIC parking lot has changed everything. That sounds dirty. Well, it was. Non-organic fruit has no flavor, grey,bland,picture cut outs from children’s colouring books bland! Never again Jewel! You cant have my money or hijack my tastebuds!!!
