Tasty Tuesday Travels

Noticeably absent from this week’s episode is seafood.  We’re in the Midwest now!  Farm country! 

Welcome to Indiana!

And yes, I’ve been here.  Smile

For a taste of the state, check out A Taste of IndianaSmile  They make gift baskets of all kinds of Indiana stuff, and will put it in an Indiana shaped basket too.  And I’d love one!  But not the Colts one.  This Pats fan will pass  on the Colts basket.  Winking smile  You can send me the stuff in the basket though!

Indiana is fields, and that means Farmer’s Markets.  Fresh fruits and vegetables, straight from the ground to your cook pot.  You can’t get any fresher than that!  Better for you, too.

I have developed a taste for asparagus lately.  Wouldn’t you know they have asparagus farms in Indiana?  How much better does this look than the stuff you get at the grocery store?  A little salt, dripping with melted butter – yum!

A plentiful Indiana crop is corn.  You know what that means!  Popcorn!

A reader in Indiana sent in this recipe to a cooking magazine.  Orange Lemon Cake sounds perfect for spring.  Smile

I like the Hoosier State.  The people are friendly and hospitable, just regular folks without attitudes.  Coastal types can get an attitude sometimes, you know?  Indiana people don’t have that.  They’re not the speediest drivers in the world either, and that’s okay because they’re not in a hurry.  Hitting IN traffic after racing along on Chicago expressways can be a bit jarring if you’re not expecting it, but then you realize you can relax.  Don’t worry, you’ll get there! 

As always, click the pics for links.  Smile

  1. Hi DF,
    With all the radioactive water from the reactor being dumped into the Pacific now, you might want to leave seafood off the Tuesday Travels posts for the next 24,000 years or so!

    I’ll take that steak instead!

    MR

    Yeah, you know, radioactivity is definitely not one of my favorite ingredients!

  2. This is enlightening. I thought the only thing people from Indiana did was eat basketballs.

    LOL Basketballs?
