The farmers market was full of tomatoes, peaches, apples, oranges, and other wonderful things. There is one guy there who sells a variety of different vegetables and is almost a vegetable proselytizer without being annoying. It just comes naturally, I think. He's the only one with the Chinese long beans, and he has several varieties of egg plants and peppers. He will offer suggestions on cooking to anyone who picks up anything. I bought two small skinny eggplants, a light color, and he threw in a dark-colored one so I could find out the difference between them.
After filling up my cloth bag I headed for the nearby Starbucks. As usual on a Saturday morning, a line. They handled it well, brought it down quickly. But when I got outside with my tea (I asked for a grande size cup but only one teabag, and when the guy charged me the full grande price of $1.65 I said I'll take the second tea bag too, which I took home with me) all the tables were filled. There weren't any other tables or places to sit in the vicinity so I headed for my car.
I decided to look for a futon frame, so I can use Elaine's futon in the living room as a couch or love seat. Goodwill didn't have any, and the futon store had only fairly expensive wood types. I realized when I went there that the twin size is only going to fit the love seat size frame, so at least I know now what to look for. Now I'm back. I put the fresh food away. I am worried that I will not use it all. I think I can make a few soups, use up some of the veggies, especially the chili pepper I bought, and some fresh basil. I still have some of the veggie lo mein left that I made last night, plenty for lunch.
But mainly I need to get to the storage building.
