Posts Tagged ‘Farmer’s Market’

Life has seemed to gotten in my way lately 🙂 I noticed that after the last Farmer’s Market of the season. I go into a cooking slump. I am realizing that is just the way it is. I went grocery shopping for the first time last weekend. It just isn’t the same as enjoying the beauty and conversations at the Farmer’s Market. I chose the store well though. I went to Trader Joe’s and just let myself  wander through the store and purchase without an agenda nor a budget. Well, kinda. I am always Frugal.

I have taken pictures of most of the things I’ve created in my room. I will be back on a more regular schedule soon.

Happy Holidays to all and Thank you!

Til next time…….SMILE

Ready for what? you ask. Ready to be Vacuum sealed and put in my Freezer. So, that we can stretch the beautiful Farmer’s Market Bounty as long as possible. It always seems like a very long time between the end of November and the first weekend of May. 😦

I’ll be going to the Farmer’s Market again tomorrow to fill in some gaps. I had purchased Peas to put away for Winter. But, guess what happened? Yep, we ate them 🙂

Every year I get better and better about putting food away. I did forget to put Berries, Corn and Asparagus away this year. I’m getting there. It’s all good.

I’m looking forward to having the time and the want to cook again. I haven’t done much of it over the last week or so. Just the grab n eat kind of eats. Salad, Apples, Sushi, anything I can find to put in a Tortilla. I think we all have those kind of weeks. At least I hope so.
