Farmer’s Market Finds

by Cate on May 10, 2007

Wednesday nights at Sweetnicks belong to The Neighbors, and tonight, The Neighbor Wife is up.

I need to go to the farmer’s market. I was talking with Cate the other day, and she mentioned the farmer’s market was going to be starting up again soon.

I said, “I can’t wait to go to the farmer’s market!! Let me know when you go.”

Shocked, Cate said “Since when are you so excited about the farmer’s market?”

“Well, I need to get some herbs.”

At this point, I know Cate was impressed and doubtful. (I can tell.)

“Herbs?” Cate said.

“Yes, I found some cute little pots that I’m going to put on my window sill and I need to put herbs in them. I’m not going to use them I just need them for show,” I replied.

And now we are back to reality. Of course, I’m not going to cook with them! But I did promise to give Cate all the herbs that grow.

Really, I can cook, but, I just don’t enjoy it as much as all of you. Sometimes I really want to. Thoughts of the house smelling like fresh baked goods, or a homecooked dinner sound great, but, no really I don’t cook. I used to cook in my single days, but then I met my husband and he’s the kind of person who only wants to eat what he’s in the mood for, so he won’t stick to a menu plan and won’t eat what you put in front of him. Therefore, I stopped cooking. Nothing is worse than working all day and making dinner only to have the person you made it for not really eat it. Now, you all know why I don’t cook.

I have gotten better though since living next to Cate. How can I not, right?

So, what are you getting at your local farmer’s market or planting in your garden this year? Maybe you guys can inspire me too.

My favorite thing to get at the farmers market is peppers. While they are usually a bit smaller they are cheaper and you don’t have any go to waste. I also buy herbs, but to use. They don’t have many stands with herbs, but I try. The other big buy for me at the market is the baked goods!!

I love the Farmer’s Market. You should use the herbs for yourself some! They are SO much better than the dried ones. But I guess if you give some to Cate, then you’ll get to eat them as well! ;-)

Heather-Bake goods sound good. I’ll have to check them out.

Merry-Funny thing,I know what to do with eggplant. (I’m Italian) Eggplant Parm. Not, that I make it a lot. It’s time consuming.

Claire-yes, Cate and I have an agreement. I’ll buy the stuff. If she makes it. Lately, I’ll buy the stuff and make it at her house. So, if I need help she’s right there. What do you think Cate? Am I getting better.
