just another day at the farmers market.....

ocean loves to be with the gals from peacock farms where we buy some of the best eggs, nuts & raisins at the market!

ocean and i were at wednesdays farmers market & this time it was for dinner with friends...nothing fancy...i call it my fast food because it takes about an hour and i am usually rushing like a mad woman to get it all done before eveybody gets home.... it's basic, down home, rustic cuisine with a local flavor....  

at home - i love bowls and i love to create stories inside them....this time around it was leeks & brussel sprouts, these incredible purple artichokes (a few leaves & some heart), roasted rosemary yams all hanging out together  on a bed of rice pilaf.  on the side was a mixed green & edible flower salad with avocado & pistachio nuts...and a small delight of little pretzel crostini with lavender goat cheese & a slice of those amazing yellow tomatoes... wish you were here ... xxx
