Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day from EGFM!
Hope you're celebrating with some of your market purchases!
Gorgeous flowers from Schaeffer's Flowers.
 Meet Bev and Denny Schaeffer - our flower farmers!

Some easy ideas for a special dinner:
Deviled Eggs - yes - using FreshAPeel Hummus!
 Its easy!
- Here's a tip - 
use your potato ricer to make quick work of mashing the yolks.
 Use half of the mayo your recipe calls for; 
and use your favorite savory hummus for the other half!
Add some fresh ground pepper.
 Beautiful deviled eggs - topped with smoked paprika!
Served with Ellen's Hot Pickled Dilly Green Beans!
These beans are absolutely addicting!
Crispy, crunchy and spicy!
 Burkholder's Organics sells the full line of Ellen's pickled products,
as well as jams and preserves.

For dinner,
a perfectly grilled veal tenderloin from Birchrun Hills Farm,
drizzled with bagna cauda!

Simple math.
Fresh rhubarb + 
 Plus gorgeous strawberries,
both from Blueberry Hill Farm
=  Equals =

How to make Strawberry Rhubarb sauce
So easy-
Slice up one bunch of rhubarb into 1 inch pieces,
Add 1/4 - 1/3 cup sugar, a vanilla bean, and about 2 TBSP water.
 Simmer until rhubarb begins to break down. Cool.
Add one pint sliced strawberries and allow to macerate for an hour or so, 
adjust sweetness to your preference.
Especially when served with Zsa's Ice Cream.
