A FEW days ago my Hubby and I had a wonderful surprise.
We FINALLY won something.
There was a drawing FOR creating a meal FROM the
locally grown FRUIT, veggies and meats.
This event was provided by PLACER GROWN, which
FEATURES everything agricultural from our county,
which is Placer.

Here's what our bag FROM the FARMER'S Market included.
Blood Oranges, Myer Lemons, Walnuts, Brown Rice, Bok Choy,
Arugala, Green Garlic, Pork Chops, and a Citrus Marinade.

With the recipes included, I FIGURED I could do this.
It wasn't FANCY but it was oh so tasty.
There is nothing like eating FRESH  FRUIT and FARM FRESH 
veggies to satisfy the taste buds.
The menu was Butter Lettuce Salad with Citrus and Lemon Dressing,
Mandarin glazed Pork Chops
Stir FRIED Brown Rice with Bok Choy and Green Garlic.

FOR desert we FINISHED this FABULOUS meal with a
Buttermilk Meyer Lemon Tart.
I will definitely use these recipes again.
