Excitement and a Bare Fridge
There was some serious excitement yesterday afternoon in the Self-Love and Running household. I’m not quite ready to divulge as the husband and I still need to talk and share our news with those nearest and dearest to us but expect some exciting news tomorrow! So stay tuned! I promise to share soon. Pinky swear.
(And no, I’m not pregnant! That’s immediately where your thoughts went, right?)
In less squee-inducing, but still pretty darn fun, happenings – I went to the farmers market in town yesterday evening. This was the first time I made it to the this particular market all summer! Bad Holly! It’s a lovely little market and I was sorely in need of some fresh fruits and veggies! Our fridge was bare. B.A.R.E. Bare. It was a sad state of affairs.
I was able to quickly remedy the situation!
My loot from the farmers market included: carrots (With full leafy tops! What do I do with those?), chard, baby zucchinis, peaches and a small container of curried quinoa with beans. I only picked up a couple of things because the husband and I will be hitting one of the other local farmers markets on Saturday.
Who snuck that mini shoo-fly pie and mini apple pie into my bag? Aren’t they cute though!
Breakfast this morning was a cup of vanilla yogurt, 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1 tablespoon of ground flax and a peach. Yum! The peach was perfect. Just on the brink of ripeness and still crunchy. I don’t like when my fruit gets too soft and squishy! I like it when it’s still firm. Mmm.
What do I do with carrot greens? Are they good for anything?
