"To buy a fat pig"
Farmer’s market was fun, but a bit rushed.
The highlight was this pasture-raised pork bacon from Grateful Growers, an old-school (in the good way) farm in Denver, NC. I’m going to use a few slices this week and freeze the rest. It was pricey, but totally worth it for the peaceful mind that comes with supporting this farm.
We ended up in the Great Harvest / Trader Joe’s shopping center where we said hello to this guy who was just getting off work
A slice of bread makes a perfect post-run snack!
And then we shopped our way through TJ’s. (I had an old school PB&J sample while there!)
Once shopped, home, unpacked, and showered, I made lunch. Luckily the bread and PB&J bite tided me over well and I wasn’t too hungry. I finally sat down at 1:30 to this
Farmer’s market arugula tossed in this homemade dressing of 1 tbsp each of maple syrup, olive oil, and lemon juice, plus a pinch of salt, a tsp of whole grain mustard, and a whole crushed garlic clove that I shook with it and then removed so it wouldn’t be overpowering.
Topped with 1 slice of Applegate Farms turkey, ~1/4 cup navy beans, some red pepper + zucchini, WALNUTS (which I have been out of for weeks and was totally craving), and gorgonzola.
Lemon ice water
GUESS WHAT I GOT MY PAWS ON!!! Our friend Kris just bought season 2 and is letting me borrow it!!!! I am actually not that happy with how the end of season 1 is going. It’s rather dark!
Mail time, mail time, MAIL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kristen of Simply Savor had these Amazing No Cook Chocolate Hazelnut Bites at the Summit Bake Sale and I lost the bid. Kristen offered to send me some anyways! She also has a fabulous video with the recipe on her site (which I love – colors, design and content!) Y’all know how much I love hazelnut butter these days.
Obviously I had one – er two – straight from the container. Fab. You. Luss.
Off to do things.
Fun times tonight are looming!
