The End of the World

Last Saturday morning brought another trip to the Farmer’s Market (of course!)…  where I scored Jericho romaine (x2), kale, broccoli, snow peas, breakfast radishes, eggs, baby red potatoes, yellow squash, strawberries (this was the last week for them!), and the first PEACHES of the season! I also bought a loaf of gluten-free sorghum bread (as a gift) and a loaf of the amazing Cranberry Walnut bread from By Lucille.

Saturday midday brought a birthday picnic for Tristan’s Mom, Susan, at a local park. Yummy food was enjoyed… I contributed a spicy Tex-Mex brown rice/black bean salad and some Roasted Red Pepper & Basil hummus.  We also enjoyed some yummy gluten-free cupcakes, courtesy of the birthday gal. Susan suffers from Celiac disease, and as such we enjoy a lot of gluten-free food at family gatherings.

After the picnic we took a family walk on the Greenway, and encountered a dead snake, live lizard, and a turtle!

6 p.m. came and went – and the world didn’t end. (Shocker). So we grilled out Portobello mushrooms for “burgers”, and served them on Great Harvest buns with Swiss cheese; along with sweet potato fries and fresh local steamed broccoli.

For dessert we dug into Joya’s Wren Cake with Irish Cream Glaze. Mmm. Delicious. (I won this cake in Tina’s Bake Sale, for Team for Kids). She also sent along a little jar of jam that her Dad made. Thanks, Joya!

We celebrated the world NOT ending on Saturday night, with a viewing of Religulous (Loved it!).

We are big Bill Maher fans, and watch Real Time every week. It was awesomely appropriate material.

  1. I’m jealous that you can buy strawberries and the first peaches of the season. I live in New Zealand and we’re just moving into winter. I miss our summer fruits badly. Enjoy the gorgeous peaches.

  2. Those mushrooms growing in that tree are so cool!

    (Glad the world didn’t end either!)

    I love that you celebrated with Bill Maher!! Loved Religulous (and real time, when I used to be able to watch it I soaked it up!)!
