City Market

What an adventure our dolls had on Saturday! We usually go to our local farmers market and we have our favorite booths, but today, the dolls got to come, too.  These dolls were a gift from Gramma and came all the way from Aunt Betsey in St. Thomas.  They are those fantastic dolls that you remember that flip over and have a whole new outfit under their skirts!  Let’s see what they are shopping for this week:

Have you ever heard of Long Island Cheddar squash? Me neither! We roasted it with maplel syrup and butter - amazing!

we bought a loaf of Anadama bread for the wheat eaters.  We loved when our dad made this bread when we were kids because we got to say the word "damn" alot.  Ana"damn"a.  hilarious, huh?

These are "feral" pears.  aparently they are more organic than organic pears because they use no sprays at all.  seems to me, they should be free then, right? oh well, support your local farmers anyway.

Thanks to our trusty, handmade, fabulous St. Thomas dollies, we got our shopping done.  The girls have never had such a good time gathering groceries before.  Those little things can make or break an outing.  I didn’t get a good picture of it, but never fear, the boy was part of this, too – he brought his Lego airplane that all the guy farmers loved! Success…..

    I noticed that the dolls had their “go to market” dresses on rather than their fancy ones! Glad they were appropriately attired!

    Anne,
    I had a break through with Racey and greens this summer when after farmcamp she declared she had kale chips and loved them. You rip kale into smallish pieces, coat with olive oil and sea salt and bake them at about 375, give or take, for about 10-15 mins less if it’s in the toaster oven. Oh, right, you don’t have a toaster. We better get on that trunkshow so you can get a new toaster!

    Hope that helps. Your blog is great!

    Love,
    Melinda
