Farmers' Market

Last week I went to a nearby Farmers' Market and bought red and golden beets, fennel, and a sweet onion.  I roasted the beets with olive oil and rosemary from my own herb patch and put them in a salad with wheat berries, walnuts, feta, the fennel, and the onion.  Another cooking adventure that fed me for a week.


I made a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup with green beans and fresh carrots, too. Variety is important, too, not just convenience.

Of course, wouldn't you know it, the day my neighbor popped over to find out what I was having for supper I was having a bowl of cereal.

  2. I love cereal. I could eat if for dinner all the time if I didn't feel like I had to do better by my children.

  5. Breakfast for dinner is very 'in' now, so you were being 'au courant!'

  6. I'm not a cold cereal fan but love my oatmeal. Chicken soup is one of my favorites. I can eat it all the time and never get tired or bored of the stuff.

  7. I thought you were going to say your neighbor stopped by to have some delicious chicken soup with you. I would have come!

  8. Wow does that salad look good. That is funny about your neighbor. I have been guilty of cereal for my evening meal also. Throw a banana in it and what is not to love.

  9. I absolutely LOVE beats but I have never heard of golden beats -- I will definitely be shopping for those! That salad looks yummy!
