Farmers’ Market 07.16.11

Are you there blog? It’s me, Lauren.

Sadly, our internet went down on Wednesday and didn’t come back up until last night. So I have taken a brief hiatus from blog-writing and blog-reading. But I was still a busy bee in the kitchen! If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I spent my day off on Friday making a birthday cake for a friend.

Happy Birthday Kevin!

I made a vegetarian version of a spicy banh mi sandwich.

I whipped up a batch of my favorite pesto, with walnuts in place of pine nuts.

minus pine nuts, plus crunchy walnuts

I did some party planning and shopping for my upcoming 25th birthday bash, and I made a little trip to the SOJ Farmers Market in beautiful, sunny 80-degree weather.

The loot:

  • Melon that turned out to be canary yellow inside – what?! (CSA)
  • Summer squash (CSA)
  • Eggplant (CSA)
  • Lettuce (CSA)
  • Parsley (CSA)
  • Tomatoes (Amy’s Organic Garden)
  • Jalapeños (Walnut Hill Farm)
  • AnnaB’s Gluten Free multi-grain baguette (new to me!)
  • Mother Bars (new to me!)
  • Sun-dried Tomato Fettucine (Bombolini Pasta)
  • Poblano peppers (Pleitez Produce)
  • Blackberries (Walnut Hill Farm)

And now, thanks to a new modem, I am back to my favorite Sunday morning spot, enjoying a cup of homemade coffee on the porch and writing about the things that I love.

Hope you made the most of a beautiful weekend too.

One year ago. . . I let you in on a secret: where to get the best iced coffee in Richmond.
