grilled 1

Heading into week two of school lunch with a little bit of dread? Head to the market to stock up on provisions. Simplify your bento box game with slices of fresh mozzarella and salami from Bambino, chopped Sun Sprout carrots, the last of summer’s berries from The Orchards of Concklin, and a little treat from Bohemian Baked. Dinner stressing you out? Head to Jackie’s Empanadas on the Go for frozen beef pastries that you can heat up in minutes. Add a salad and dinner is done! North Winds Lavender Farm and Neversink Spirits make their monthly visits. Ian Moore, the roaming fiddler, performs in the Music Tent.

If you’re thinking of apple picking already, consider heading to The Orchards of Concklin. “Pick-Your-Own” The farm is just 30 minutes away in Pomona, NY and is open Saturdays and Sundays from 11-5. Kids under 3 are free— everyone else pays $11 each for a ½ peck bag. Poles are available to rent for those hard-to-get ones.

 
What to cook in this in-between time, when the cool evening breeze signals autumn but Market tables still scream “Summer!” How about a culinary compromise — grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup? This classic combo can work for weeknight dinners AND lunches. First start with the sandwich. The technique is simple, so you really need stellar ingredients to make it stand out. Get aged cheddar from Dobbs & Bishop, thick Pullman bread from Wave Hill, and that’s it. From there, you can keep it simple or get creative. Maybe a bit of peach jam from Meredith’s, a Doc Pickle sweet & sour, or some bacon from Letterbox? Peruse these ideas for grownup grilled cheeses for inspiration. Next up is the soup- also a simple technique requiring ripe, in-season ingredients. We like this recipe for its simplicity and the addition of basil. No need to use roma-ask Simon or Nichki for tomato recs. Finish it off with a swirl of Kontoulis Olive Oil and summer stays alive in your kitchen!

Eileen Russell, the woodworker behind American Bow Knife visits tomorrow with her handcrafted, functional wood products. Her blades encased in wooden masterpieces are a sight to behold! We know the gift-giving December holidays are too far away to even consider, but if you have a home chef in your life, grab a one-of-a kind mezzaluna or bowknife and stash it in the closet until then. This will likely be her last visit of the season! All of her creations are handmade from solid hardwood and each piece has its own unique characteristics — knots, blemishes, scars, age rings and discolorations. Or just get one for yourself!
