Today I finally checked out the Simple Farm in Scottsdale. At 9:30AM then temperatures were already in the upper 90’s, but that did not deter devotees! Fresh tomatoes were their feature for the day. I picked up a gorgeous eggplant, fresh rosemary, fresh goat cheese, local honey and the salted caramel made with cream from the goats on the farm. Oh yum. There were a lot of tempting things, but I needed to stay on focus and make sure I bought what I could use within reason.
It was a pleasant surprise to spend time with so many friendly people! I spoke with both Michael and Lylah, the husband and wife team that run the farm. It was like I visited there every day!
Once home, inspired by my purchases, I diced the eggplant and sautéed it with the rosemary, some shallots and artichokes I already had on hand, and then topped it all with the goat cheese. Tasty! I could get used to this!
