Two thumbs up for the holiday weekend!
Although I actually took the night off from blogging or taking any photos, Jay and I did end up having a nice evening, complete with a glass of wine, some of my favorite pizza, and a few hours hanging out with good friends. Oh yeah, and we finally opened up the pool. WOOO!
This morning, I woke up to the sun shining and immediately thought, “Wow, today is the perfect day for a trip to the Farmers Market.”
So to the Farmers Market I went. And as expected, things were in full swing by the time I got there.
My favorite bread spot, Our Daily Bread.
The next time I go, I’m totally bringing Jay so we can stop at Nighthawk’s Kitchen. Everything coming away from this stand looked and smelled incredible. Turns out, they only serve at the Market…no restaurant!
This week, I noticed a new vendor, Flour City Pasta. The stand was super crowded while I was there, so since I really don’t need any pasta right now, I figured I’d just wait until next time. But some of the flavors looked pretty serious.
I was *this close* to buying myself a bouquet of these flowers…aren’t they beautiful?
Almost as beautiful as these candy apples I came across from Sweet Sues. In case you can’t tell, those are caramel and chocolate covered apples, mounded up high with peanut butter cups and Oreos. Oh.my.lord.
Next time, I’m totally bringing more money with me…
On my way out, I stopped by the Spillin’ the Beans stand for some iced coffee,
and headed home with my goods. I really didn’t need anything today; I just really enjoy the experience of going. But of course, I did leave with a few goodies…
A loaf of Whole Wheat bread
AND…Blizzard Butter. Be still my heart.
And since I only snacked on a peach before leaving the house (plus a bunch of samples at the market, ahem) this morning, I made sure to incorporate all of my new goods into a late breakfast. From Market to Table!
I scrambled up some eggs with fresh basil, salt, pepper, and ketchup, which turned out to be some of the best I’ve had in a long time.
Jay will probably fall over when he reads this, but I’m pretty sure it had something to do with the cracked black pepper (usually, I can’t stand the stuff…but I may coming around?)
I also toasted up a piece of my whole wheat bread and topped it with some Blizzard Butter. I also nibbled on both of the heels of the bread + more BB while I was waiting for everything to cook up.
It is gorgeous out there today, so as soon as I finish this up, I’m heading outdoors to enjoy the day.
Hope you have a great one!
