Farmers Market that is. I have been hitting farmers markets in search of some early fresh treats. Green beans, corn, tomatoes and lots of other goodies. We even found some home made dog treats for our dog. They smell just like the peanut butter cookies we eat. He loves them. They sell home made baked goods as well. The banana nut bread was delicious.
My favorite thing from the farmers market are the green beans. I love to snap them. It brings back childhood memories of sitting on Grandma Childers porch snapping green beans with my sisters. I love how green they are and how they still have a little 'snap' to them after you cook them.
Now you may ask why I don't grow my own veggies or bake my own banana nut bread? That's easy to answer. I have a black thumb and I don't like the kitchen enough to spend hours slaving over a hot stove and oven. I'll will let those who are best at it do it for me. Besides, it's nice to support local farmers, gardeners and bakers.
I can't wait 'till August when the farmers markets will be in full swing. I need to learn how to can so I can enjoy the food all year long. First I need to redecorate my kitchen so I will enjoy being in it. I already know what I am going to do with it. I just have to get motivated enough to tare down wall paper and start painting,
Do you go to farmers markets? If so, what do you enjoy most? If not, give it a try and eat locally.
