a saturday fortune
At the market
And home again.
This morning before the rains began, the farmers market was abundant with riches...it's the time of year when the market swells with the last peaches and plums mingling with the first apples and pears and all the vine fruits and vegetables are out and about. How could we resist this tiny orange-pink watermelon, the freshest eggs and cheese, these jewel-toned vegetables, these bright flowers designed to keep us happy all week?
I want to make Soupe au Pistou tomorrow night, a dish I love to make when the first beautiful beans come out at the market, the vegetables are petite and lovely and my basil is abundant, to say the least.
(I'll post my recipe for it after I do!~)
