This morning I trucked down to the Downtown Farmers Market to pick up my CSA and try to not spend a whole lot more money....
I was only half successful...
I did get my CSA, but I also bought some Paul's Grains Quinoa, Paul's Grains granola (KILLER) and a Breakfast THANG from Tacopocalypse.
The lovely Miss Emily Carlson of WHO-TV fame was flipping tortillas like a pro. (I guess they'll give anyone a job...)
When I got home I whipped up a spinach and strawberry smoothie. I have a bunch of spinach and greens left from last week because I spent half the week in Ames and didn't open my CSA 'till Thursday. I'm hoping it keeps in the fridge.
I just snacked on the granola and some raisin bread for lunch. My Breakfast Thing was pretty filling.
Then I made some dinner to bring with me. Local beef, spring garlic, spinach, green onions and a tomato simmered down with some water. I let that thing simmer for over an hour.
I also got a special treat. My AWESOME coworker Dave's wife Emily, also of TV fame... sent a slice of peach pie for me! Made in her kitchen, just a few miles away! :)
There is no picture of that because I inhaled it. (oops)
