Sleepy Farmers Market
I got up this morning when it was still dark out to get first dibs at the farmers market. The market is about 20 minutes away, 40 minutes when a gal has to stop for cash and a pumpkin coffee at Dunkin Donuts.
Stopped by my favorite pasta vendor and bought the Southwest Pasta Blend. We are having our favorite people, T.$ and mo.honey over tomorrow for some Halloween gaming and dinner so I plan to serve them this pasta with organic chicken bbq'd with a southwest rub. For all my San Diego lovies, they sell this pasta at the farmers market in Mission Valley!! If you have a chance, go check it out! The pasta is fresh, healthy, low in points (2 for 2oz.) and DELICIOUS!
Also scored some honey crisp apples from Pennsylvania. They were a $1.99 a pound which is what I'd pay for a mushy imported apple in the grocery store.
Of course I bought my staple, yellow and green squash and the best tasting mushrooms in the world! Actually TASTES like a mushroom. And just my luck, they had sun-dried tomatoes today. They go well in a salad or some fresh pasta.
All in all it was a successful trip. I love my farmers market!
