I've so fallen in love with going to the farmer's market here on Marco Island that I just might have to haul my tired ass out of bed on Saturday mornings this summer to go to the one in Guilford. We have to head back north this weekend and other than the 80+ degree weather, sunshine, and heated pool, we'll miss the farmer's market the most. No band today, but we had a ball regardless. This struck me as particularly funny/clever:
No I didn't buy any. I did try to get good photos of produce abundance, but once again the sun was too bright for decent photos. But I did accidentally snap the name of the company that sells the yummy crab-cakes (particularly fantastic since neither of us could remember what it was to save our lives):
An $8 price tag plus my weakness for herbs means this huge rosemary plant is making the drive home with us. I'm going to be craving lamb the whole way. Let's hope it feels as perky in our dry, cold kitchen as it seems to on the condo's lanai:
Two heirloom tomatoes, 2 avocados, 3 ruby grapefruits, a bunch of other tomatoes, and brussel sprouts -- that would be an odd meal (and yes, our stainless steel shot measurer traveled south with us, as did some pans, spices, and other kitchen essentials):
Crab-cakes for dinner tonight (and yucky store bought tomatoes behind them that we got before we found out about the farmer's market 2 weeks ago):
And more in the freezer for our farewell dinner Saturday night:
Just over $40 spent today, but $20 of it was for crab-cakes and another $8 for the rosemary plant, so not too bad. And dinner was delish -- tuna-fish in the heirloom tomatoes, crab-cakes, and caesar salad. Guacamole tomorrow for our afternoon snack (we don't eat lunch down here since that's prime pool time), dinner with mom out and then we'll have to figure out what to do with those brussel sprouts, but at $1 for the basket, we couldn't pass them up!
