Gorgeous Weekend! Colorful Produce Is Starting To Trickle In!
On Friday I went over to my parents house to visit and put a fairly large Wildtree Order in - in preparation for our next 4 events! We have next weekend off, but then we have at least 4 weekends in a row where we will be booked with events! I know it sounds crazy but I am excited about this! Excited about being busy! YAY! While I was over at my parents house my mother surprised me with these Veggie Sushi Rolls from Wegmans as well as a nice sized mass of Jicama! I've been CRAVING Jicama lately! In these Sushi Rolls you will see Wild Mushrooms, Asparagus, Avocado, Cucumber, Nori, Sticky Rice, and Sesame Seeds! They were wonderful!
I was so VERY excited that Saturday was Awesomely-Sunny! I soooo needed the sunshine! It was fair weather and terrifically positive the WHOLE day! I am FINALLY starting to see produce! I still had to buy some from regular grocery store but it's even starting to look so much better than it did! Here is most of what I bought! I stopped at Tops Markets but also stopped at Hatch Patch - a local produce stand here and Brigiotta's in Jamestown/Lakewood, NY. Considering all I bought I didn't spend that much! I spent more in gas than actually buying the produce!
I did something that I have never done before. I sat down and ate lunch in the cafe by myself. I know it doesn't sound like a lot but I usually get stuff to go when I am by myself!
I have decided to DO IT! I'm going to do a garden this year! I'm not going to do it in the ground but rather in boxes and try that for this year!
My husband is already excited about the Chives for his Baked Potatoes!
As I type this...I'm thinking I might actually do THREE posts, today, instead! Next up - in a couple of hours - I will be posting all of the foods from the weekend! Yeah! I went a little crazy! But it was fun!
How was your weekend!?

I do that all the time...stop for a bite all by myself and sometimes, out of boredom rather than hunger, just to pass the time e.g. when the missus is shopping. Bad, eh? Just look at my shape and size. LOL!!!ReplyDelete
I know it sounds weird...I just never really did that by myself! LOL :) It was nice! Especially where I went! Nice and laid back!Delete
Sounds like a great weekend and so exciting about the garden! I've been adding to mine this year too, so nice to step out to the backyard for fresh produce!ReplyDelete
You and Opal really encouraged me to proceed with it! I'm still nervous I won't be able to handle it well! I don't have a green thumb! Last year all of my herbs died and those are really easy, usually! LOLDelete
