The Farmer's Market and other fresh adventures

We decided to check out the local farmer's market which is held very Saturday morning from 8 am to 1 pm just outside of Austin. There was live music, fresh eggs, fruit, vegetables, bread, chicken, meat, fish, organic popsicles (strange sounding, but delicious), etc. We spent way too much but we did pick out a few things we plan to make regular, weekly purchases.

To top it off, Alek made Creole for dinner with the shrimp we bought from the Gulf fishermen at the Farmer's Market.

I know, I need to work on my food photography, but it was an awesome meal! I'm a lucky girl to have a husband that loves to cook as much as I do.

There was another experiment we tested today. On Monday we put strawberries into vodka to distill and today we tried it out. I put mine with lots of sprite but it was pretty yummy.

Also we might've sold our truck (we'll know on Monday) which is exciting because we are considering leasing the Toyota Rave 4. Alek puts a lot of miles on the truck right now and it just isn't a practical vehicle for us right now. So keep your fingers crossed for us!

  1. Your farmer's market sounds a lot more exciting than the couple in Manhattan. Haha. That's awesome, and the food looks delicious! Good luck selling the truck... we finally sold Michael's crap car from high school lol.
