‘Tis a Gift to be Simple….

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!
