Farmer's Market Day!!
I went bright & early, before it even started. And OMG cherries are out!!! I'm so excited, I've been dying for cherries to be in season for awhile. No one had them last week, but 3 vendors had them this week! So exciting!
Super happy with everything I bought:
3 cartons of blueberries (picked yesterday! so tasty)...they also had some amazing mulberries that I sampled, but I decided that I could buy one or the other...maybe next week!
1 head of purple cauliflower...yes, purple! gorgeous
1 carton of strawberries
2 yellow squash
2 bags of spinach
1 bunch of carrots
1 lb of cherries
Totaled $40, and I could probably stand to spend less and I definitely wanted to spend more...it's the berries & cherries!!! Other berries are coming into season too, I can't wait!!
I'm still dealing with the aftermath of my ice cream adventure Thursday evening...my eyes still itch & I'm still kinda congested, but it's not as bad as yesterday.
Plans for this weekend:
More chopping of my veggies...
Making another batch of salmon cakes
Maybe making up some sort of chicken dish
Eating fresh berries
Breakfast: Eggy Avocado Halves...although my avocados weren't quite ripe enough yet (& it's been a week!...this experience has taught me just how long avocados in the store must travel/sit around before I ever buy them, because these farmer's market ones just keep going & going). I should throw 1 or 2 into a paper bag to ripen them...
Lunch: Steamed veggies with curry sauce
Dinner: Spinach salad (maybe with blueberries!), salmon cake
