The Farmer's Market

My friend and I went to the farmer's market this week. For a mere $20 I was able to get all this:

a bag of gala apples
2 cucumbers
3 zucchini
5 tomatoes
6 peaches
a butternut squash
a pumpkin
a bunch of kale
a bunch of sweet potato vine (the farmer said I could use it just like spinach)

Door to Door Organics

There is a company here called Door to Door Organics. They actually deliver organic produce right to your door. I had heard about the company a while back, and then was super excited to see a Groupon for half off the small box (called a bitty box).

I decided to use my Groupon last week. (Obviously this is the moment to say how much I love Groupon).

Here's what I got:

2 apples
3 plums
2 nectarines
a bag of purple long beans
a bunch of carrots
a cucumber
a bunch of spinach
a head of green lettuce

Favorite Things

It has still been 100 degrees around here. (Not today. Today is amazing. Today is gorgeous. Today is 80). So I have still been eating "summer food" = giant salads, whole produce, with maybe a little lentils and rice for fun.

But I thought I would share two things I am loving right now.

#1: Sun-dried Tomatoes

I bought them in a flat box, so they weren't packed in oil, and they were delicious. I sliced them and put them in a green salad, and I sliced them and put them in a bean salad.

#2: Garlic Sea Salt Grinder

Ok, it's the world's tiniest image, but the flavor packs a punch. It's delightful.
