Friday night and Saturday morning
It's really spring here, now. Everything is green. I've bought my herbs and tomato plants. Yesterday the weather was absolutely gorgeous and dinner was cooked 100% on the grill -- sausages, asparagus, potatoes and onions (in the big foil packet), artichokes (in the smaller foil packet), wine for me. Delicious. I will be grilling EVERYTHING from now until it gets too hot, which is usually sometime in July. And then I'll grill everything again from mid-September until the time changes in November and it gets too dark. That's just how I roll.
This morning after dropping H at a theater contest, P and I took the dog to the farmer's market. I just started going again after not going for months and months. I get out of the habit in the fall -- this market is only open on Saturday mornings and we can't do anything then during football/marching season because C has contests every Saturday. Last week I came home with eggs, beets, radishes, asparagus, artichokes (the ones we ate last night, actually), strawberries, mushrooms and broccoli. This week it was eggs, strawberries, asparagus, mushrooms, bloody mary mix, pecans and dog shampoo. And a food truck breakfast from The Peached Tortilla -- chorizo-egg taco for P and bacon jam slider for me. So good!
Now I'm back home drinking an iced coffee. It was damp and foggy and grey up until about 5 minutes ago; now it's sunny and gorgeous again. I think it's going to be a good day.
