Farmers Market

Thursday nights there's a Farmers Market in town and last week we checked it out for the first time. Michael and I were late however, and most of the vendors were packing up by the time we got there, but we did manage to purchase some sweet and juicy oranges (the best I've had all year), broccoli, and some sugar snap peas. Tonight we'll be there earlier and we hope to bring home some beautiful organic produce.

We've been cooking dinner together most evenings and trying to eat healthy. A weekly trip to the Farmers Market this summer will be fun and help us continue to eat right. I just love all the summer fruits and vegetables. I need to get the Weber out of the garage and do some grilling. My sister grilled some pineapple for us on Monday and it was SO good. The barbeque just makes everything taste better, doesn't it?

    Mmmmm, nothing tastier (or fresher) than local produce. We look forward to it every year - even the kids get excited when our local stands open up.

    Grilled pineapple sounds YUMMY. Have to try it.

    We just got a new portable grill because our other one broke. I can't wait to get that one going. Maybe on Saturday. Nothing says summer like BBQ!

    We grilled out tonight. I have been know to be grilling with snow on the ground!

    I am praying your package arrives tomorrow. It was mailed last Friday. I didn't plan on it taking this long - I forgot mail wasn't going to run on Monday. Sorry it is late this month! I have found your June present, and I am going to order it next week. I am having a friend order it because I don't want my name on the package. It is coming from Fisher-Price. I just wanted you to know it would have a weird name on the package!

    Have a good weekend! Hopefully my package will arrive soon!

    Your SP

    I couldn't agree more! Everything is much better on the BBQ :D WE just got a new one and we totally splurged! We have been to the Farmers Market and grilling fruit! Pineapples are awesome, but grill a mango ~ OMG ~ it melts in your mouth! Ian and LiLi both eat a whole grilled mango! We are also grilling peaches, pears, and sweet potatoes!

    That's just pure inspiration to me. I have got to do the same. I feel like I eat way too much processed food.
