The Farmer's Market

I love going to the farmer's market. I love all the fresh fruit and veggies, the great selection and prices. It's getting later in the summer so some of my favorites are drying up, but I bought something today I wouldn't normally: butternut and acorn squash. Can't wait to try them. We also got some purple hull peas - yummy, okra, green tomatoes, and italian green beans. But, the clincher was a huge basket of ripe-right-now peaches. We spent the day making freezer peach jam - yummy! My other favorite thing we made today was roasted tomatoes. Mix olive oil, chopped garlic, fresh thyme and tomato slices on baking sheet. Roast for 1.5 hrs. on 350 - mmmmm the whole house smelled like a pizza parlor!

Ok...I am coming to your house. I have fresh tomatoes and some freshly picked peas that I can bring. No, I didn't grow or pick either.
