Good finds at Wilson Farms this weekend. As always, the scones and grenn beans are great. We tried the apple cider donuts, too- small, and delicious right from the fryer!
I bought a small butternut squash- it was really hard to peel, and hard to cut up before steaming. I thought it did no bode well for the taste. I was so wrong. I can truthfully say it was the best butternut squash I have ever had. No moisture at all in the meat- sweet and perfect. I simply steamed it, added some butter and S/P. So good, I went back and got about a dozen more pieces. This will stand up to recipes well. Am eager to try squash risotto, and tonight I think we will have roasted squash.
Have also been trying some of their meats. Lots of the meat offerings are in individual serving sizes- so this time I went for the angus beef patties. Two eight ounce patties for $5.00. They were fabulous-I seard on both sides in cast iron skillet, topped with sauteed mushrooms and swiss cheese, and into a hot oven until cooked perfectly rare. Served on homemade bulkie rolls. Eight ounces is a large serving, so I ended up splitting one burger.
NExt time I think I will try their pizza dough. Love this place. No matter how crowded it is, I am in and out of there is no time. And this past weekend it was really busy, as they had hayrides thru the vegetable fields.
