Finger lickin' good!

Yesterday I picked up 3 months of glorious meat from Austin's Farms, a farm to table resource for fresh meat.  They distribute at the soon to be open Powessit Farms, a thriving CSA with a fantastic farmers market.  With the sun showing itself, I'm dreaming of colors and tastes that the summer months bring...slowing down and taking stock of what is around us.

What's right in front of me is kids wanting food that tastes good and sweet! So I tried something new with stuff already in my pantry. (Just so you know, you'll be tempted to lick your fingers at the end...)
