Farmers market

Last weekend we accidentally strolled into the farmers market in Coconut Grove. The minute we walked in, we wanted to buy it all.   As I browsed through all of the delicious looking items, I noticed that few of them had been marked with prices, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.

We carefully picked a few items, including a jar of an unbranded organic raw honey, a bottle of fresh orange + passion fruit juice, a small tub of homemade bell pepper hummus, a tropical fruit salad, and a mint tabbouleh salad.  Oh, and on our way to the register I spotted turkey brown figs (the kind I used here) and I simply couldn’t resist.

At the cash register, the gentleman helping us check out asked if it was our first time at the market. I nodded and quickly commented on how much we had loved it.  He took one good luck at our basket and chuckled (bad sign). Somehow, we managed to choose a few of the most expensive items there.  This was duly noted by the cashier who did not refrain from commenting on our “expensive taste in organic food.” I’m still wondering if I should take that as a compliment…

Next time, I’ll be sure to grab a price list before I start browsing through the isles. At least that way I’ll know if I’m picking the $20 medicinal honey to bring home to eat with my pancakes!  One thing is for sure though, everything was fresh and delicious.

100 Things – Week 1

To make a long story short, I ran into this 100 Simple Things project and quickly decided I needed to do this.  Now, every Friday for the next 10 weeks, I will be posting a list of 10 things that make me happy.

I’m excited to take this on because I believe it’s absolutely necessary to take note of all those little things in life that we sometimes take for granted and be thankful for them. They may be the littlest or most insignificant things, but they are the ones that brighten up my day every time.

#1 – Pretty flower arrangements that light up & freshen an entire room

#2 – A cup of tea with honey

#3 – Extra chocolate chips in my cupcake batter

#4 – My striped headboard, which was my first DIY home project :)

#5 – Sushi delivery

#6 –  Untouched snow (which I remember dearly from my days in the Northeast)

#7 – Pretty mornings as seen from my balcony

#8 – Homemade cappuccino

#9 – Afternoon bike rides

#10 – Paying unexpected visits to the farmer’s market
