As I anticipate summer...I remember this photo of produce that I got during the beginning of the Fall season.
For $45 Cold Hard cash: a table full of organic produce. Wow! You can't beat that (even for non-organic). We try to catch a farmer's market to shop for produce for the week or next 2. Last year I discovered the Chinatown/Downtown Oakland Farmers Market and it's so far my favorite. There is this feeling that folks there are just there to shop, so it's down to business as opposed to the sceney 'look at me be cool' feel that some other farmer's markets have (which I appreciate too on certain days). Here's what we bought:
(2) 20-count trays brown Eggs (we were hosting a brunch so we bought A LOT)
Yellow,Purple, Red & Green Bell Peppers
Yellow Summer Squash
Pomegranates( Fuyu & Hachiya)
Yellow Green Beans
I just love what fall has to offer. This motivates me to keep going Farmer's markets for better/fresher foods.
If there's anything having this blog has achieved is getting me to make more soups. Which is kind of the purpose, right? I really disliked soups and don't ever make them, but now I have somewhat of a new-found appreciation for them. Yay me!
And squash- The produce that keeps on giving. These babies keep for MONNTHSSS. We have squashes that we got in October still holding us down in March, April, May... Whoa!

Okay so it's not really ikea food, but those were yellow carrots I bought from the farmer's market, and once I made my plate, it looked like the freakish bright colored perfect veggies they have at ikea.
