Kyle and I braved the cold and rainy SOJ Market this weekend to get our weekly haul. Due to packed weekend schedules and an unfortunate ankle sprain that occurred three weeks ago, we haven’t made it out to the market in awhile. Now that I am off crutches and in a walking boot, we cleared our Saturday morning schedules and headed to the farmers’ market despite wind, rain, and plummeting temperatures. It was very wet and cold, but the veggies looked awesome this week and I enjoyed every minute of our trip! Maybe absence makes the heart grow fonder?
Here’s the loot:
- Kale (Victory Farms)
- Spinach (Victory Farms)
- Butternut Squash (Victory Farms)
- Acorn Squash (Pleitez Produce)
- Brussels Sprouts (Pleitez Produce)
- Broccoli Rabe (Victory Farms)
- Cilantro (Victory Farms)
- Beets (Victory Farms)
- Bell Peppers (Victory Farms)
Grand total. . . $23! That discount for Victory Farms CSA members definitely makes a difference. I’ve already planned my fall meal plan for this week and I am really excited to spend some quality time with my kitchen now that my foot is at the point that I can stand on it for awhile without having to sit down.
The rest of our weekend was spent lounging around, bundling up, and listening to the rain fall outside. I also finished my Halloween costume and participated in a little holiday-themed revelry last night.
And today was spent drinking mimosas and watching football.
Not a bad weekend at all.
Next up: planning and packing for San Francisco. . .
