This Week at the Covington Farmer’s Market with Charlene LeJeune

Blessings of the season to you, friends! The market will be open tomorrow on the eve of Christmas Eve. I know you’re all getting ready for family and friends and lots of great food. All the more reason to stop by for a refreshing salad of lemongrass chicken and rice noodles and bring home a creamy shrimp and corn chowder to chase away the rush of the day. I’ve already ordered my fixins from Chompers so I’m all set for whatever the rest of the week brings. Since I refuse to let dreary weather get the best of me, I’ll need a little assistance from Frankie…hmmm, maybe mini banana pudding or fig cake or…. I’ll probably need some of Lillie’s teacakes too!

I thought we’d celebrate our last Saturday of this year with the reason you all come to the Farmers’ Market – the veggies! A quick perusal of the tables last weekend shows that the veggies are not taking a holiday, so much the better for us. You’ll find produce tables trimmed in gorgeous greens – tat soi, bok choi, cabbage, broccoli, kale, mustard, and adorned with sweet juicy oranges, grapefruit, strawberries and kumquats and snowdrifts of white cauliflower. (That’s about as close to snow as I really want to get this year.) Fortunately, Nick still has those fabulous Evangeline sweet potatoes. You don’t have to do much with them; just poke them and pop them in the oven until nice and tender. Then slice and arrange them in a casserole dish and top with slices of satsuma (live a little) and marshmallows from Betty Rue. Oh, yea!

Then, if we’re lucky, Spanish R Us will have that fantastic Tres Leche cake that has become a seasonal favorite. Jennifer has created cream cheese mint leaves and roses that are destined to become tradition in your family. And if that’s not enough to tempt you, she’ll have her newest tarts Ratatouille with Romano cheese and herbed tomato sauce and Apple Pie Tart (white wine braised apples in a sharp cheddar cheese butter crust.) Mauthe’s silky smooth cheese cake will mellow out the year with creamy goodness and have Father Time turning back the clock so he can enjoy it again!

What a fun-filled day we’ll have but it really wouldn’t be the same without you! Hope to see you there.

Lots of love,
Charlene LeJeune
