at the market & this week's menu

By Tuesday, April 27, 2010 , ,

I was very worried that Saturday was going to be washed out with the predicted rainy forecast, but Mother Nature timed her showers perfectly for pre- and post-farmers' market visit. Chris ran Crazy Legs, an annual 8K race in sub-8-minute-miles (go, babe!) while Pickle and I did a circuit of the market, which also acted as the race's starting line — how convenient. I must say that having the UW Marching band playing while shopping for veggies made for a very lively experience. Pickle clapped along as we strolled. It was a good day.

At the Market:
Baby lettuce
Chinese broccoli
English hothouse cucumbers
Grass-fed ground sirloin from Northwood Farms

Happy eating! -s
