I went to the Farmers Market downtown in Marion Square. It was my first time going to the Farmers Market downtown, hard to believe since I have lived here almost 4 years now. I usually go to a local stand near my house but decided I wanted to check out the big one. It was fabulous there were so many stands with tasty food and drinks not mention all the gorgeous produce! I bought all these local goodies: tomatoes, baby heirloom tomatoes, fresh figs, butter beans, sweet potatoes, Russian kale, and peaches.
I can't wait to cook some delish fresh meals with all these goodies. I am planning on making this sweet potato black bean salad from With Style and Grace with my potatoes.
and this Tomato Feta Salad from Barefoot Contessa with my baby heirlooms. My girl Ina never disappoints.
On Friday I made this tasty blueberry banana bread with some fruit I had that was about to go bad. We enjoyed it all weekend. Recipe to come Wednesday.
On Sunday we decided to clean under our sea grass rug in the den, per Matt's suggestion. I really didn't want to tackle this but I am glad we did. Our allergies have been horrible and we thought the rug might be the problem. We were right. This is what was under our rug. How disgusting! It was sand and dust and really was making us sick. The rug is living outside now while we look for a replacement. Sea Grass rugs are hard to vacuum and get really clean which is why I think all this was under our rug. Sorry to gross ya'll out on a Monday.
We took care of this nugget who got really sick on Sunday. He ran a fever of 104 and really freaked me out. He was not a happy camper, and I had a very long night worrying about him and checking on him every hour. We are off to the Doctor this morning. Why is it that kids always get sick on the weekend when you can't get in to see a doctor??
And we celebrated National Tequila Day on Sunday. We needed the tequila after our long day!
