How was the market today?
I forgot that I wanted to post something so folks could report on the farmers market today, thereby alerting other readers to the good things they are likely to find tomorrow at the market under the viaduct and other markets during the week. It may be too late for the Waverly market today, but there's always Sunday's.
I sent my husband off this morning for the absolute essentials -- peaches, nectarines and tomatoes -- just in case my plane gets delayed, and I don't get to the Sunday market myself.
Always the optimist.
I'm sitting here eating a fabulous Illinois peach as I write. Who even knew they grew peaches in Illinois?
My daughter is living in student housing, by the way. Student housing for business school is like student housing everywhere except there are free Wall Street Journals in the lobby. I'm not making that up.
To clarify Gailor's idea further (I know I'm jumping around here), imagine that someone put down a crab or an artichoke in front of you and you had never heard of one before. How difficult would it be to figure out how to eat it? That's what she meant by difficult foods. The problem is I can't think of eight others, so it's probably not a good idea for a Top 10.
