Just the usual summer Friday around here for a LOL - that stands for Lady of Leisure. I met my mom at the yoga studio at 7 a.m. for an especially painful yoga session (thanks to my Tough Mudder Boot Camp workout at the park on the 4th of July - ohhhhh, so sore!) Then we went to Starbucks where I had my Venti iced coffee and oatmeal. Brian is off work this week so he met up with us there. Even though it was already getting hot and humid at 8:30, it was nice in the shade.
Next stop was the Farmer's Market. I bought another bunch of kale to make kale chips, some zucchini and yellow squash, green beans, peaches, and a rosemary plant. I visited The Granola Tree again and sampled many of their delicious jams and peanut butters. They have such unique flavors! Last week I bought the Carrot Cake Jam, which makes amazing oatmeal. This time I had a hard time deciding between the Mulled Wine and Blackberries, Strawberry Lemonade, and Strawberry Coconut. Finally, knowing that I can and will return next week, I went with the Mulled Wine and Blackberries. I think I'll make some homemade bread this weekend to spread it on.
I also remembered to take my knife to have it sharpened for $2 at Binell Brothers Cutlery. It's a used one that I bought from them last year and it's seriously the best knife I own. After sharpening the blade, the guy asked if I just wanted a new (used) one instead since it was sharper. Same price! Um, yes please! So I got a brand new (used) super sharp knife for $2! Sweet deal!
Oh, and in case you are wondering, I exercised great restraint at Cellar Door Soap Co. and did not buy any soap. That's correct. I didn't buy any soap! Did I think about it? Yes I did. Did I smell every bar there and mentally pick my 3/$15? Yes I did. But I set them down and walked away, singing a little Kelly Clarkson tune to myself.
So that was my morning at the market.
