I Heart Organic!

I started off my day with how I wish I could start at a local farmers' market! Today I went to Morningside Farmers' Market for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Everyone was amazingly friendly and all the vendors were extremely helpful in explaining how they prefer to prepare some of their unique products. Here was what my feast looked like all spread out at home.

Yep! Even the fresh flowers are from the market!

As you can see, bought chicken, cucumber, blueberries, blackberries, cherry tomatoes, squash blossoms, granola, lettuce, purple peppers, and whole-wheat sourdough bread.

I also bought watermelon, Japanese eggplants, green beans, herbs, and heirloom as well as beefsteak tomatoes.

After taking everything home, I went out and rounded out my shopping spree with some new measuring spoons from Anthropologie along with a couple of cookbooks.

Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients by Jesse Ziff Cool

Wonderfoods:Amazing Ingredients & Recipes for Optimum Health by Natalie Savona

Now...what to eat first?

Bon Appetit!
