Explorations: The Farmers Market
It looked like it was just one family, a father and two sons, there selling produce and flowers from their farm. They had so much to pick from, it was hard to decide. I settled on a dozen ears of corn, 3 mini eggplants, a zucchini, and some blueberries, all for ten bucks! I dropped it all off at home before heading out for our Friday Date Night.
Saturday, we were a little lazy, so I did not even look at the produce until late afternoon/early evening. The blueberries were so beautiful, I decided to try to take a creative picture with them. Here is my best attempt.
Yesterday, we had a little cook out with some friends, and planned on grilling the corn and eggplants. We shucked the corn, and on one ear, there was a little shoot that looked like a tiny ear of corn, so we shucked that as well, and sure enough, it was a mini corn!
We grilled the corn (but the mini ear fell between the grates, boo) and it was so good! I put butter and Pampered Chef Creole seasoning on it, so tasty! The eggplant was exceptional as well, I brushed an herb and garlic sauce lightly on it. Now all we have left are some blueberries and the zucchini. I think it is safe to assume I will be going back this Friday!
