I arranged a few of today's market finds patriotically for my photo today. Happy 4th, everyone!

In yesterday's New York Times Dining Section, Mark Bittman continues his 101 series. This time, just in time for the July 4th weekend, it's "101 20 minutes Dishes for Inspired Picnics." What I especially like about this series (including 101 Simple Appetizers in 20 Minutes or Less, 101 Quick Meals, Summer Express: 101 Simple Meals Ready in 10 Minutes or Less ) is it features simple preparations and few ingredients. It's good to remember it doesn't take much time, effort or exotic ingredients to present simple, delicious meals, especially with the fresh produce, eggs, meat, etc. available at your local farmer's market.
