I love it when a Saturday rolls around when I don’t have a commitment to run to. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes those commitments can be super fun, such as last weekend’s Blogger Brunch. :) But for those mornings when I’m free, nothing beats a trip to the Farmers Market.
Before leaving the house, I snacked on a couple pieces of Carrot Raisin Manna Bread with some PB2 spread on top. Yes, I think the addiction has already started.
I had hoped the hubby would be able to make the trip down to the market with me this morning, but unfortunately he had some work to take care of at home. So me, myself, and I (and my reusable bag) headed on down. The market was definitely boomin’ today, and am super excited that so many of the vendors are starting to get such a wide variety of produce. It makes me smile. :-D
Today’s purchases: Carrots, beets, zucchini, yellow squash, red potatoes, fresh basil & flat leaf parsley.
Isn’t fresh produce just so pretty?!? :)
Cody wasn’t quite sure what to make of his mama snappin’ pictures of her produce outside…
“Hey, whatcha doin’ Mom?”
I also had to pick up a jar of Blizzard Butter, but that has already been taken to the post office to make its way out to Sunnydale, CA… ;)
I want to try to find a good recipe for a parsley-potato salad of some sort. If anyone happens to know of any good ones, please pass along the info!
I also picked up a little caffeine while out and about this morning: another Hawaiian Coconut flavored one – deeeeLISH! :-P
I made one of THE most delicious sandwiches EVER today! First of all, I love tomatoes. I could eat them everyday, especially in the summer once they start to get ripe. Gimme a big one, and I’ll bite into it like an apple. YUM. But when tomatoes are paired with fresh basil on a sandwich? Now there’s a combo I’m talkin’ about!
I lightly toasted a whole wheat Arnold Sandwich Thin, spread one half with a smear of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese, and the other half with some roasted red pepper hommus. Then I added some fresh slices of tomato and a couple leaves of basil; it’s amazing just how well the tomato and basil complement each other, along with the mix of Swiss cheese. Everything just tasted to fresh, which I love…it was definitely a killer sandwich. :-D
Along with my sandwich, a had a couple new carrot sticks + hommus & a juicy peach.
Now I’m off to do a little yard work (yippeeeeeee) but I’m hoping all of my hard work will pay off with a nice little fro yo trip later this evening and maybe a movie date? Fingers crossed for me! :shock: :-D
Question for the Day:
What’s the last good movie you watched (either in the theater or at home)
