Saturday Farmers' Market Picks

I am defending my dissertation on Monday so today's Meridian Township Farmers' Market trip was geared toward the snacks that I am going to provide at my presentation. I found out tonight that providing snacks at your dissertation defense is not the norm across all departments at Michigan State University or elsewhere. But the defenses that I've attended always have snacks, usually coffee and Breton's crackers and some cheese. Since my research has to do with farm to school programs, I thought that I had better practice what I preach and provide locally grown snacks. After the market, we hit ELFCO, our local co-op. and picked up some Grassfields cheese (Gouda and Leyden) and some brownie mix from Westwind Milling Company (yes, even I eat brownies), and apple cider from Almar Orchard.

Meridian Township Farmers' Market Picks: carrots, lettuce (Owosso Organics), asparagus, rhubarb (Threadgould Gardens), Easter Egg radishes (Green Eagle Farm).

Good luck with your defense! And let us know about the snack recipes. Good to have a stock of thesis defense recipes handy!
