Off to Market after stopping to talk to the littlest greeter!
These three are some of our favorite local farmers. She is our favorite bank teller and their baby was born on Tom's Birthday! Their vegetables are organic and the plants they sell have been some of the best survivors we've put into the yarden.
A view of the Market from the other end. Our favorite Market is this one held every Saturday morning in one of the parking lots at UNC-Asheville. Great vendors, there's always shade and often a breeze. It's always Fun to see what's new and fresh.
Corn and flat Italian parsley picked this morning, with a great Chevre n' Chives from the Three Graces Creamery.
Left to right: sweet pepper, a couple of egg plants, more cukes, a gorgeous red bell pepper, really tasty tomatoes, a wonderul little melon, a couple of the red candy onions and an asian cucumber.
Fresh wax beans in another bowl that our friend Gay Brown made and gave to us. (One of a set of three nesting bowls.)
Shopping is fun and hungry work! So once home Pat made us a great lunch.
We both put in sometime cleaning up and doing house work. And then we had a hard time just settling down and loafing! It was such an intense and productive week that we were both a little antsy. We did finally relax and sprawl for awhile. It was a nice afternoon.
Then it was time for me to get busy and make dinner!!!
Grilled shrimp kabobs! These are 20-21 count shrimp just in from the coast that we bought at the market. They're skewered with red onions, red and yellow bell peppers and mushrooms. There also a few sage leaves in there. The veggies and then the shrimp were quickly marinated in a mix of olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper. Oh yeah, a dash of tobasco and Worcestershire sauces too.
