It has been a long time since I went to the Farmers Market....just not liking going out much anymore, especially in a non stop humid/hot weather.
I promised a recipe for a delish Peach Crumble next but when I have the brain power to conjure up measurements for a ''recipe'' I will do so.
Today I went to Market and things were different there, they always change up things, some loved things go and some new ones come, but I found a few of my favorite things.
I am not able to do many things due to financial changes in my life since a year ago, so when I do get to go shopping it is a huge pleasure. This is my basket for today, not all I purchased is visible but its beautiful.
One was a Coconut Ginger juice I spoke about here. I had a sip today and it was still swoon worthy stuff! Yumly! I bought one. And because he also makes a Coconut Lime one, which I discovered on my own the addition of lime was sublime, I bought one of those for the way back :D I bought 2 dozen white roses for $10.00, makes the trip there worthwhile! 3 potted herbs, pineapple mint, thai mint, and regular mint....love them for everything!
I bought my favorite Walnut Ciabatta which they sell half baked but once you order it they can bake it for 8 minutes while you wait and then its heavenly hot baked bread....no words......just yumly and you can see from the picture I was already picking on it. You can not leave warm delish bread to grow cold right?! I bought a dozen organic free range egss for $5.00 expensive, but eggs must be good quality. A handmade artisan mozzarella cheese to make my "famous Caprice Salad" lol and some fat beefsteak tomatoes for that Caprice. There was an old man standing there picking out choice ones so I asked him to help me pick some too and he was only too happy it seemed to have someone speak to him! What fun!
I bought something new, rice chips as large as pita bread for those times when I need a crunch with something like my Chickpea Feta dip but want something not heavy, so this was a great find. They did NOT have my mustard which I wanted really badly....Bens Mustard. And I bought two mini red velvet cupcakes because of the cream cheese topping which I needed to eat on the spot! LOL
Beautiful basket these things create and I'm eating well again today. But mostly I am extremely GRATEFUL to be able to shop and buy some simple foods and Roses I wanted.
many blessings to your life.

- "Where better to care for the soul than in the details of our daily lives?....The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought... An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination where we find value, love and union with the world around us. As mystics of many religions have taught, that sense of rapturous union can give a sense of fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant." ~ Thomas Moore.
