Thank you! And welcome to all the newcomers who checked out the blog today.
I just got back from the Belmont Farmers Market. My farmer friend Matt and I had fun and sold as much produce as possible, but for some reason, the whole market was dead today. The weather was beautiful so I am not sure where everyone was, but we made the most of it. And by making the most of it, I mean we ate our way through all the other vendors who were there. Ragab (Samira’s homemade hummus) was of course there and fed me way too much! Whenever I see Ragab he tells me I look “too hungry” and our conversation ends with me holding a stack of hummus, tabouli, babaganoush and stuffed grape leaves. I say this every week, but Ragab is the man, and I cannot imagine a Thursday farmers market without him!
We ended our long day at the farmers market with an extremely rainy drive home! I always love a good excuse to turn the windshield wipers on. Yes, I am an Oregonian!
After a long day of selling Hutchins Farm produce I came home to something truly wonderful. Taylor made me dinner! I think Thursday nights are becoming his night in the kitchen and he makes what real hard-working farmers want to eat….pizza calzones! He made a very similar one last week. Using farm fresh peppers and onions.
(He even took pictures!)
Dinner is served! Taylor will not reveal his special pizza calzone recipe, but use your imagination. Every food group you love, all wrapped up in pizza dough! Can’t go wrong!
Better yet, the two men in my life doing the dishes after a long day!
(for those of you who don’t think we feed Henry, we got him as a rescue dog 4 days ago! He needs to gain at least 10 pounds. I think I am the woman for the job!)
Alright, off to bed. The alarm clock goes off at 5 a.m tomorrow. However, not for farm work, I am leaving the boys (Taylor and Henry) at home while I participate in a 200 mile relay run through New Hampshire. I will do my best to keep updates throughout the weekend, but if that fails I will be back to regular blogging/a recap of the experience on Sunday. Goodnight
