farmer's market report

Yesterday, we almost didn't go to the market. We sat here and wibbled and ultimately, it came down to lettuce and the timing of meals that we wanted to eat. So, we threw on some clothes and raced out, and we were glad we did. Jeff's mom wasn't feeling good, so she didn't come out, which was disappointing; we'd been hoping to get her out of the house for a bit.

We ended up with more than was on the list; I wasn't thinking about the fact that it's July, and produce is rolling in like crazy. So, we got:

- 2 dozen extra large eggs
- potatoes
- cucumbers
- cherry tomatoes
- a double head of gorgeous lettuce, but she knocked a buck off because she felt like it was less than gorgeous
- 3 perfect ears of corn
- some baby yellow squash and zucchini
- ground beef and pork breakfast sausage
- hot dogs and beer brats
- Jeff's mom's spanikopita

I wanted some peaches, but we were running low on cash, and we already have fruit we're trying to work our way through. So. Next week or the week after.

This week, we feast:

Saturday: over easy egg tacos
Sunday: burgers & side salads & fruit
Monday: salads
Tuesday: rice noodle salad bowls
Wednesday: beer brats, potatoes
Thursday: lasagne, which keeps getting bumped each week
Friday: breakfast pizza

I need to do an Asian market run, and will probably need to grab some more cheese for those that can. Otherwise, we're set for the week.

(no subject)

I have had nothing on the schedule since Thursday night's board meeting, and it's been glorious. Friday, I did a whole lot of nothing. Yesterday was a whole lot of nothing too, in between bouts of productivity. We ran out to the farmer's market in the morning; in the afternoon, we ran by the Verizon store for some plan rearranging (of which it looks like some worked and some didn't, scowl) and Office Max for office supply porn. There was Burn Notice watching and some reading and some game installing, because after a couple of years of trying, faecat has convinced me to try the World of Warcrackcraft. Nope, I don't want to group with you yet (anyone out there still playing, or have most folks stopped?), and you don't want me to - I'm not much past the "uh, so, the arrow keys move me, right?" stage. I'd resisted playing for a long time, because I know how I can be about these things (most of y'all did not know me during my IRC days, heh), but my schedule is better than it's been in awhile and she wants to play, so we'll try it. :)
