Farmer’s Market, a trip to the Farm and a Delicious Dinner

We finished up our week learning about farm life with a trip to the local Farmer’s Market and a visit to a nearby farm.

When we visit Farmer's Market, I usually give them each a couple of dollars to spend how they choose....adding a little math to the equation.

And, we bring along our bikes and scooters as this is a pretty kid-friendly place, nice and open with friendly shopkeepers.

Des Moines Dinner Menu

Yellow Beans (boiled with a hint of butter)

Grilled Halibut with Fennel

Fresh Gilroy Garlic Bread

Typically I like a bit more color in a meal, but the children chose the beans and preparing fish with fennel is one of my favorite ways to make it.  First, grill the fish, then cover and set aside, then, after dipping sliced fennel into flour, saute in butter until tender, seasoning with salt and pepper.  Serve fennel atop fish.  Delicious and the kids love it too!

We did one more farm activity that I will share the next time I get around to posting as it was quite fun as well!
