Like a foodie in a produce shop.Posted: June 11, 2010
Counting down to the weekend? 😉 I know none of you would EVER do that!
I’m not ready to go back to work Monday! I’m enjoying these free days far too much 🙂 Today I was feeling adventurous and decided to take our main highway in the opposite direction from where I usually head.
Not even five minutes up the road, I stumbled across a mini foodie paradise, a.k.a. Walker’s Produce Stand.
I love local produce stands! I’m forever craning my neck at them whenever I see one, although I’m usually on my way somewhere with no time to duck in!
I wasn’t sure where to start!
In the absolutely GORGEOUS array of colorful veggies?
Visions of spaghetti sauces were dancing through my head 😉
The owners also hooked me up with a root veggie I’d never heard of before:
Apparently this critter is a malanga – a starchy, tropical root veggie similar to a sweet potato. I’m thinking somewhere under that ugly exterior is a perfect candidate for oven fries…
I brought home a substantial amount of goodies, including these lovelies:
I’ve already got big plans for them, and it’s NOT guacamole! Alright, some of it may be guacamole…(you know I can’t resist!), but tonight’s dinner is using them in a different way! Any guesses what’s up my sleeve? 😉
Do you have any local produce stands, and if you do, do you frequent them?
