Green Heart Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday 2/27


Dear Green Heart Friends,

I hope you are warm and cozy on this cold, windy day!  Ted and I have just come in from covering the unfinished roof of the new tack shed he has been building with a tarp, that he had to heavily weigh down with pavers.  Let's hope we get some rain to accompany all this wind.  Checking the weather forecast, I see that by Sunday, it will be lovely again....followed by high '80's next week(!). 

Ugh - horse racing season begins this weekend at Rillito.  We were spared in 2021 but here we go again.  The market moves a half-hour earlier (8:30 - 12:30).  The parking lot gets more crowded as noon approaches, although there will be parking attendants directing the confusion. 2020, the first and last weekends of the racing season were busy; the "middle" weekends were not.  Racing season runs thru Sunday, April 3rd.

Let's talk food!  I "captured" a photo of Egyptian Koshari, which we will make this weekend.  It is assembled in layers of lentil rice, WW pasta, garbanzos seasoned with cumin, a piquant tomato sauce (vinegar), and topped with sauteed onions.  Traditionally, the onions are breaded and cooked in oil, but we will saute and caramelize them w/o oil.


Egyptian Koshari

And our lasagna:  I will make it similar to how I made it in December, which was a change from the past couple of years.  You'll read the description, and see it's got lots of veggies.

The Chocolate Raspberry Hearts were requested, and so you will see them on the menu.  Also an organic Strawberry Cake - even the frosting will have pureed strawberries in it, and therefore, will be pink.

Thank you, as always, for your order.  If you are new, simply email your menu choices to me by Thursday evening,  and I will confirm your order by Friday morning.

In health,

Green Heart Bakery

We will still incorporate our oil- free pesto. And Ted makes the puttanesca sauce, which is a marinara kicked up with capers, shallots, and minced Kalamata olives.
