The main floor was mainly butchers, cheese shops, and a couple of bakeries.
I think I found my home and the new wallpaper for my computer.
Pick a color, any color.
Maybe you prefer meat on a stick? This was only one part of one case for the butcher section. Most butchers had cases almost 30 feet long. I have never seen so much meat in one place, and I've been to The Hanger Club.
They even had stuff I could have gotten for Teddy if I hadn't had to get it past customs. Note Canadian boy in the backgroud looking at me like I'm a freak.Downstairs was produce, dry goods, and souvenirs. I love the different colors of potatoes.
Really blueberry and cherry? That seems pretty nasty.
Sunflower seeds anyone?
I totally should have bought the shirt on the left for Yo-yo Seibert.
It was a great trip and I can't wait to go back. I got to have dinner at a restaurant right on the water and watch the ships go by. A loverly way to spend an evening.

I tried to make another souffle, this one with bacon, scallions, and cheese. There was an extra yolk and 2 strips of bacon which made this one much denser than the last. I probably wouldn't make it again. The salad was great, and the company was even better.
I made chicken stir fry with snap peas, broccoli, and scallions from the CSA. I added some peppers and carrots from the fridge so I didn't end up with a green and white dinner.
After a couple of souffles, I went back to basics this evening. Scrambled eggs and hash browns, sprinkled with scallions from this week.
My mini garden is growing well. There are a number of tomatoes coming in.
And the cucumbers are trying to come in the house.
And I love our local farmer's market. I bought this at the last one I went to.

Egg whites whipped till stiff about to be folded into the souffle base.
Finished souffle. Fully cooked, unlike the last time I made one and served at a baby shower and served undercooked eggs to pregnant women.
I also made salad with homemade vingarette. Very French and a great way to spend an evening.
