Farmer’s Market Goodies

August 5, 2010

It took a while for “Wednesday Afternoon” to be synonymous with “Farmer’s Market,” but I think I’ve got it now.

At 1 PM on Wednesdays, there are a couple of vendors in Fountain Park–way fewer than on Saturdays, but 2 or 3, nonetheless, and it’s just enough….at least, if you need to pick up a veggie or 2 or a few pieces of fruit….which is what I did yesterday, since we had a guest coming in and I wanted to have fresh produce.

I bought a pint of blueberries–they’re so nice to “sprinkle” through the fresh, sliced peaches in the mornings; a zuchinni, 2 ears of corn and a quart of peaches.

I had omelets on the brain. No, not for the fruit; but for the corn and squash. Since it’s summer and corn and squash are so yummy–especially if you put in some onion–I figured a “Summer Omelet” served for today’s breakfast might be just the thing…

…And so it was, at least, according to Chad* (*name changed), which was a very cool thing for me, since Chad was a self-professed foodie! Woo hoo! Some things work! (Some don’t, but if you top it off with an Amelia Bedelia sort of ending, it just might. And as my mother used to say, “20 years from now they won’t know the difference!”) But today was a score. And that’s always a nice thing (when those goodies turn out goooood).
