Farmers Market Purchases

And yes, that's asparagus grown locally and organically. This is just one more reason to live on the West coast. Those slender little darlings will be part of our dinner tonight. Also got chard, leeks, carrots, apples, broccolini, popping corn, and red cabbage. This time it's a small cabbage so we won't spend a whole week eating it. The egg lady was sold out again; she gave me her phone number so I can call her next Friday to reserve a dozen eggs for Saturday.

I didn't include Kerry's purchase in the picture; he bought Kettle Korn. Mr. Diabetes bought a boat load of carbs.

It's cloudy here with a promise of rain and clouds for most of the week.

Monday we order our meat from the meat club. Gotta check the freezer to see what we need. I think I'll get my eggs there. Next Saturday we are flying to St. Louis to visit Julia and Mark so won't get to the market. Looks like a heat wave in St. Louis while we are there; highs in the low 40s.

I so love that your doing this! You inspire me! I have changed the way we eat and where that food comes from. I wish we had a farmers market year round. They do in Milwaukee. I blogged about it here;
Thanks for being an advocate for organic food.

oh and I failed to confess that I do indulge in classic Frito Lay potato chips every once in awhile. ;)

I should NOT read your blog while I'm hungry.
