TGIF! Spring is FINALLY HERE! Boy have we been ready for the sunshine and warmer temperatures. We get to enjoy Spring in Montana for all of 1 min then Summer finally follows.
Spring is an interesting month for foodies. The only veggies we can buy locally are greens and some early root crops. We still have access to fantastic local meat. Thank goodness for that! We locavores won't be impacted by the industrial meat disaster.
One of my favorite things to put on a perfectly grilled Montana steak is chimichurri sauce.
Chimichurri sauce, also known as Argentinian Pesto, is a delicious, tangy herb and garlic that goes perfectly with grilled meats. My new favorite version is made with radish greens. Radishes are always the first thing I harvest from my garden, and I will be pulling them up in a few weeks. Until I can use my own I will be enjoying this grilled radish with radish green chimichurri sauce from www.dishingupthedirt.com with radishes from our local farms. Click on the image for the recipe. Enjoy!
Are you joining us Saturday at 9am at the Gallatin County Regional Park for our virtual Spartan Sprint Obstacle Course? We hope to see you there!
Everyone can do this! You can run, walk, ruck, bike or just leisurely stroll your way through a super fun 5K.
What are you doing this weekend? Just hanging around?
Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer vacation. Of course, we Montanans know that we could get a last dumping of snow just as easily as we could enjoy a glorious sunny day.
The weather forecast for today and tomorrow is not looking much like grilling weather. Instead, prep these ribs in the slow cooker in the morning before you head out for your adventure and enjoy a rich and delicious warm meal when you come in from the rain.

Remember, we do not have a class tomorrow (Saturday) and we will one great big fun outdoor in the sunshine class on Memorial Day Monday at 10:30am at Oak Springs Park. Oak Springs Park is on the corner of Ferguson and Annie.
See you then!
Who's ready for a barbell?
YEAH!!! It's Foodie Friday! It's been a long week with lots of ups and downs thanks to those no push-up burpees yesterday:)
As I mentioned in yesterday's Homegrown Paleo blog, there are some cool season crops that can be grown as early as March in our region. We have fabulous farmers who know season extension techniques and we can enjoy, right now, fresh lettuce, green, carrots and parsnips. I'm picking my farm box up at the farm tomorrow and I'll be making these fantastic parsnip fries.
Click on the image for the recipe. Make these fries with burgers from local beef or bison and enjoy a local brew and you'll be a locavore like me:)
Do you have a plyo box at home? Today you get to use it for more than a side table:)
This Sunday is Mother's Day. Good thing our local restaurants opened this week, I predict many folks are ready for an terrific Sunday Brunch.
If you're inclined to stay home, you can make a fantastic Mother's Day brunch with all the good local foods. Here's a recipe I can't wait to make. I'll order my bread from Wild Crumb today. I have herbs in my garden I can use or I might see what I get in my farm box from Gallatin Valley Botanical. I'll use the duck eggs a friend gave me. Soon, very, very soon we will get local radishes. They are the absolute easiest thing to grow and only take about a month from seed to harvest. They grow well in big pots, try sowing some seeds this weekend!
Meanwhile, enjoy this recipe for fried egg on toast with herb butter from Bon Appetit. Click on the image for the recipe.
