Eatin’ good in the neighborhood

I just returned from the Wednesday afternoon farmer’s market with:

  • Dead ripe tomatoes (my addiction)
  • Bi-color sweet corn
  • Imperfectly shaped green peppers
  • Peaches so ripe they exploded out of their skin when I bit into one
  • Homemade pasta
  • Asiago breadsticks
  • Mixed olives in anise olive oil
  • Locally bottled white Sangria
  • Garlic-dill jack cheese made by a small WI dairy

I am very aware that this is what blessing tastes like. And I’m grateful…

Thought-provoking post of the day: Shawn Blanc’s Fight Spot post about leadership. He writes about an essential component for healthy leadership – and it’s not what you’d expect. But he’s dead on.

Here’s a website that’ll probably crack you up – or at least, give you a grin, just due to its complete absurdity. These are people who have way too much time on their hands.

    I love fresh food from the farmer’s market! I imagine that’s what food in Heaven will be…no canned, processed or freeze-dried food there! Enjoy your bounty!

    Thanks, Lisa – last night’s dinner tasted like summer. (Or Heaven’s appetizer!)

    Michelle,

    Just read your list from the farmer’s market. Then I looked at the picture.

    Oh my—does that every sound good!

    I wish I oould take credit for that gorgeous picture – yeah, internet. If I’d taken it, it would have been blurry, or my thumb would have been in the corner of the shot. (And I have a digital camera!)
