This past Sunday was an unexpectedly gorgeous day and my eldest daughter and I wanted to figure out a way to seize it. I suggested we hit the local farmer’s market and she was ALL IN given her recent (but not subsiding) obsession with cooking. Her brother and sister decided to tag along and we all piled into the car and headed to the Market. It was lovely. Fresh-cut flowers, baguettes, jams, beautiful peaches and more. We racked up on $25 dollars worth of goodies without really trying – something for everyone. Chatterbox chose a fresh-baked croissant, baguette and peaches; L’il Buddy chose a package of Snickerdoodles; Giggles held out for Sour Punch Straws from the CVS (eye roll); and we brought back a mini Apple-Caramel Pie for Hubby. My treats for myself were a Hazelnut-Chocolate Croissant and a bouquet of blood-red dahlias. What a perfect way to usher in Fall. We might just have ourselves a weekly ritual.
