Last Saturday morning was a bit chilly but the sun was shining. We had a very early bird start to the day due to the hungriest person that I ever did meet needing food at 6:00am. A few hours later we got ready to head out on our normal trip to the market. There were lots of people standing in line on that sunny morning gathering their fresh produce for the week. We noted that there seems to be one particular stand that draws the longest lines for their strawberries, even though there are other stands that have them. We chatted with the vendors and farmers and tasted lots of interesting things including blueberry lemon goat cheese, black raspberry jam, maple syrup barbecue sauce, and hemp seed power bars.
This week the husband and I were quite hungry so we grabbed a seat on the lawn and picked up some breakfast. He got a ham and egg sandwich on thick slices of brioche and I of course got eggplant parmesan, which turned out to be the most delicious breakfast of champions. Little man got a bag of mini cinnamon sugar donuts. He graciously shared our meals with us all while clutching a donut in each little hand.
And when you eat that much, and play that hard all before 9:30 in the morning, you need a recharge before the day can continue. All in all it was a successful trip! We came home with zucchini, strawberry rhubarb jam, strawberries, cognac fig goat cheese, spinach, and fresh eggs. Stayed tuned this week and I'll share some of the things that we cook up. Happy Monday!
