Is there anything better? A farmer’s market on a hot day at the height of summer, abundant with nature’s best food, locally baked goods, and the people whose hands are responsible for the labors of love that bring it all to us. I have been missing out on filling my kitchen with farmer’s market finds as I have had a bunch of after work activities = lots of wilted kale and other veggies that did NOT like to go to events. But yesterday I knew I was going straight home, so I stocked up.
Blueberries were everywhere. I planned on cooking with them, maybe a pie or a tart or just a salad, but I ate them.
I picked up some peaches, not yet ripe, for snacking on later in the weekend. I hope they are the type that make juice dribble down my chin and ruin my clothes like I am 5 years old
My basket of veggies at Siena Farms included some purple kale, sweet onions, corn, and carrots.
I didn’t buy any, but this mix of greens and flower petals was too pretty to NOT take a photo of them.
When I finally got home after a long day, we had a simple dinner of buttered lobster rolls on a farmer’s market baguette, corn with sriracha, and tomato salad, a mix of onions, tomatoes, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Served with a bottle of chilled La Vigne di Alice Brut Rosé, a wine with an intense nose of rose petals and flavors that are sweet and pleasant with lovely bubbles.
The market and dinner with my hubby were definitely the highlights of my Friday which was otherwise painfully boring. Have you ever felt like you have outgrown a job? I think that’s me right now.
What was the highlight of your Friday?
