Farmer's Market: Open

Image
Today is the first day of the Farmer's Market that's closest to me. It's every Saturday from now through October. Excited, and sleepy (I didn't get many winks last night) I ventured over to the ATM and walked to see what's available. What really got my attention were the flowers. I really wanted peonies, but my allergies were acting up. Let me correct that, I really wanted one of everything, but couldn't get too much. The one thing I don't like about my apartment is that there's no balcony, and no direct sunlight.

I did see strawberries and rhubarb, but I'd made a tart a little while back and wasn't in the mood to make another one. Besides that, Thursday and Friday were my days off and I don't know next week's schedule yet, so I didn't want the produce to rot away in the veggie bin.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, not yet, almost. I've got 22 days until the big day. I've been busy with work and resting from work, I haven't thought much about the day other than that it's coming up, I'll be a year older, and I want to go out to dinner. And then there's the problem of the cake. I have no idea what I want to bake. For myself. So I need everyone's help. I'm out of ideas about what to make, but I know what I like to eat.

bittersweet chocolate (of course)
coffee
pecans
almonds
peanuts
caramel
vanilla
cinnamon
blueberry
brown sugar
pomegranate
cherries
mascarpone

This is a short list, and I'm sure I'll think of things I've missed. But I need all the help I can get. Post your ideas in the comments.

Thanks!
