Market Day

Slept in today.  So I didn't get to go to the other market.  Went to my usual market and got lots of good stuff.  I probably would've been overloaded if I'd gone to both!

Today's market finds: cucumbers, bell peppers, Asian pears, apples, satsumas, mustard greens, turnips, oak leaf lettuce, yellow squash (tiny ones!), shiitake mushrooms, sweet potatoes (am I going to have to have a sweet potato challenge??), popcorn rice, tomatoes, grape tomatoes, kale(YAY!), and green beans.

For dinner, I roasted some vegetables, but I added eggplant, since I needed to use it up.  Also added a little balsamic vinegar near the end, for flavor.  Served with polenta.  Wasn't that into it.  My husband liked it though! I could've used more vinegar.  Was thinking of making a balsamic reduction for it....not enough time.  Next time I'll try that.  Does it really take a couple of hours to make?  Anyone?

Maybe tomorrow I'll make a millet dish.  I came across some good recipes from various blogs......I think I'm becoming addicted to food blogs.  Is that wrong??  I look at Google reader everyday (ok, several times a day) to see what's new in my billion blogs I'm subscribed to!  I can't keep up with you guys.

Was such a nice day today....walked in the park for 45 minutes.  Lots of ducks, swans, geese, egrets, and even a heron.  Although we did get chased by some aggressive Muscovy ducks.....

Ok, that's all for now.
Eat smart,


  1. Awesome veggie haul! And yay for millet! It's my new favourite!!

    And I have the same problem. There's constantly over 250 posts sitting in my google reader waiting for me, especially with Vegan Mofo going on (and why most the blogs I read hear nothing from me for a week or 2 then suddenly have comments on a whole bunch of posts at once :P)

  2. Yeah, the posts do collect with MoFo...and then I want to cook it all....sigh....not enough time! I have so many already starred as favorites to try. Each time I go back to this market, there's more and more....woohoo!
