One of my favorite weekend activities is perusing out local farmer's market looking for food that inspires. The farmer's market has become a family affair and it helps that the kids get to stuff their faces with free, fresh samples. We make it our goal to find the most bizarre, interesting looking foods and figure out what to do with them (today it was Chinese long beans and this is what we decided to do with them before eating them.)
Apologies to those who came over for the Chinese long bean stir-fry. I assure you he keeps his hair very clean.....on most days.
After we shop and nibble, there's a great play structure and water feature to tire the boys out.
Today, I brought home some gorgous golden beets and decided to make a salad for lunch.
Assemble: boiled beets, avocado, walnuts, goat cheese with a citrus vineagrette (fresh-squeezed orange juice, salt, pepper, oil, vinegar and garlic.)
Almost too pretty to eat......almost.
