Cheer Up Buttercup

  • Some girls buy shoes. 
  • Some girls eat chocolate. 
  • Some girls read love stories.

(OK, I’ve been known to do those things too!)

But to cheer myself up this weekend, I went to a farmers market.  Nothing says happy like a big bin of pumpkins!  :)

My haul for $14!!

Butternut squash, acorn squash, spaghetti squash…

078

99 cent onions, 99 cent carrots, $2 beets…

079

Zucchini, rutabaga, Honeycrisp apples, unknown Nova Scotia yellow apples…

080

That’s a lot for a “single” gal.  But it should make my menus a little more interesting over the next couple of weeks!

They aren't goldens. I bought them because I'd never heard of them before...thinking I'd remember the name but then promptly forgetting the minute I walked away!

We never did get any of those Honeycrisp up here! Boooo. I love those things.

What a haul. Can't wait to see it all "in action".
