Are you tired of hearing about how I love Saturdays? I went shopping for my vegetarian daughter's visit. She'll be here Tuesday so I like to have lots for her to choose from and I like to have flowers in her room.
Corn is easy to prepare on the fly and so I bought plenty for the week. I figured that if Amy doesn't want much I'll cut off and freeze some more for winter use. Cumin Gouda with apple, yum, that tastes like fall to me! These little tomatoes at Charles' table will be great in a salad featuring this great leaf lettuce or for a snack. I love the little yellow pear-shaped ones.
These little carrots, (remember my attraction to all things differently colored this year?) were too good to pass up. I've been wanting to roast some fennel for a long time and I think Amy will love it! Aren't those bulbs beautiful? My okra guy just eats them like celery. I also plan to saute some radishes if they aren't all used up in the salad.
Oh, the apples! I love that my favorite apple guy cuts samples of his apples, I think I tried every one. I bought red delicious, which mind you- I would NEVER buy in the grocery store. No flavor at all there. But, these little jewels are hard, crunchy and flavorful. The golden delicious were a surprise, too, another apple I never touch at the store. These are great! I forgot what the last one was. I did get to sample one of his Honey Crisp though they aren't producing enough to bring to market.
Okra for a great rice and okra recipe (sans bacon this time) for Amy. She ate the whole recipe last time.
Sunflowers for the dining room table with eucalyptus (I'm adding a stalk to the shower for aroma therapy).By the way, Ezra asked if they were plastic last night at dinner. They do look perfect, eh?
The little vase of zinnia and miscellaneous greenery is for the guest room.
Next Saturday all of the family is coming over for dinner! What will I get at the market NEXT Saturday? Stay tuned!
