Farmer's Market

Yesterday mom and I spent a lovely afternoon in Monterey.

Just before heading home we happened upon the weekly farmer's market downtown on Alvarado Street.

Live music, fresh tortillas, homemade jams, fresh cut flowers and produce, olive oils and balsamic vinegars for tasting - yum! Handcrafted jewelry, knitted scarves and slippers, you name it. The streets were packed.

We shared a carnitas taco and I found myself a perfect butternut squash for making bisque.

What better place to hit up a farmer's market than the Salinas Valley?

* I wish I had brought my camera along; instead I stole these photos from the internet :)

Happy Window

Sad window...

Plus ugly pelmet found for two bucks at Last Chance Mercantile...

Plus ten billion staples removed by dad and myself last night...

Plus five dollar tablecloth snagged on clearance at Marshalls...

Plus a custom upholstery job by Jason...

We've got ourselves a happy window!

And another project checked off the list!

What a Difference a Knob Makes

Snagged these beauties from the sale rack at Cost Plus World Market on my lunch break!

It's Official

The Hills are Alive

And it only take about five minutes to get here from our place.

Beats jogging on a treadmill. Yeah!

Pork Sliders

So I forgot the milk, but Trader Joe's made us some yummy pulled pork sliders, sweet potato fries and spinach salad with gorgonzola.

This is what happens...

...when I go into Trader Joe's for milk.
