Oh readers, I made you promises again on which I didn’t deliver. It’s the farmers market again, I said. I will certainly resume regular posting. Don’t worry!
Lies lies lies. You’ve heard them all before, of course, but that doesn’t make them any less unacceptable. Please, know that I’m sorry from the bottom of my little shriveled heart.
So today, I come bearing beauteous bounty:
I rose bright and early (i.e. 7 a.m.) to get my produce on, and I was not disappointed. Before you are (clockwise from top right):
- mixed green lettuces ($3)
- brown eggs for my man ($4.50)
- arugula ($4)
- sugar snap peas ($3)
- green onions ($2)
- Tidal School Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon ($16)
- Hardesty Prairie Fire Cheese for my man ($5)
- strawberries ($4)
- unpictured: iced tea from the Coffee House on Cherry Street ($2.50)
For a grand total of: $44, or $28 if you subtract the wine. Not too shabby! What shall I do with all the beautiful things? Oh friends, it will involve salads and a hummus wrap. In fact, I can’t say anything else at the moment because it’s 8:30 a.m. and I want to eat my own arm, so telling you about the delightful meals I have planned might kill me. I will (I will!) post about them, though.
I did learn something tragic, though. Cute barista who always sells me my coffee and tea now sports a wedding ring. Oh, sigh. Our hidden forbidden love lives on. Single tear.
If we can get it together, I will have an extra-special farmers market post coming atcha soon. It’s only been in the works for a month, though, so don’t hold your breath.
What’s your favorite farmers market find? Mine will always be purple hull peas. I can’t wait until they return!
