a week end to myself

So the men went off camping in the 1000 islands. i had the week end to myself. i took myself to dinner and stayed out to catch a sunset right here in the village,on the Erie Canal. And then this morning i got up at 5am and went Downtown to the big farmers market, which we call the Public Market. Talked to a very interesting woman. Since we have been trying to eat according to the Paleo way of eating. I ‘v been making alot of our own food. I can ..I’m home. and i like to cook..so its a win win.

i always try to get to the market early… i don’t like crowds… and i guess a lot of others feel the same way
we are blessed with some of the best muck farming around.. in Western New York
so i finished my veggie buying spree and it was time for coffee
Billy and Bob were working mighty hard today.. the line was really long and i was in line at 7am
this is Philomina she prepares a healthier way to eat. and boy she gave me an excellent dish today
busy preparing another dish
yep thats her,
ohh wow, yep this is my breakfast, shes almost done
here we have roast sweet potatoes and plantains, with a a bit of red sauce on it, i have to tell you, I’m far from a fussy eater anyway.. and Dave and i will try anything at least once… but ill be back for more of this..till i buy the book and make my own:) this was what Phil called a small portion.. here it is a little after 11am, and I’m still very full. btw.. it as delicious , the flavors were something i cant describe
i don’t know what any of you do when your standing in line but i snap to my hearts content.. mostly because i don’t like to wait.. and this keeps me occupied
Phil also makes these bars and breads. i bought one for Dave.. with blueberries and other goodies in it. she uses honey for a sweetener.
right next to Phil is an olive oil company.. very good oils too!!
its still peach season here, with apples right behind them.. lets not forget my tomatoes..which i came to get:)
im so glad i go early, always can find a seat somewhere:)
and I’ll close with the sunset, which i got last night , in my village on the Erie Canal.

thanks for stopping by. have an awesome rest of the week end..or week:)!

  2. I publication filled with so many stories… thank you ☺ 5 am is so early to me! I think I’ve seen so few sunrises, when kid I disliked crowded markets but that’s because adults use to walk without see children, so now I can tolerate them.
