Saturday Sell’n at the Farmers Market!

November 10, 2007 at 9:06 am Leave a comment

It’s just about time to load our bundled up selves into Bernie and head towards to Lexington for the farmers market. He’s packed to the hilt! I can’t believe the amount of gift baskets that I did yesterday. There’s something for just about everyone and in every price range. Hopefully they will all find great homes today cause it’s that time of the month…you know when all of the big bills role in. EEK!

We’ve both got ourselves layered so we can peel the clothing as the day warms up. The corner of Vine and Upper is a windy spot and the cool (darn cold) air goes right through ya! Drew even packed a kerosene heater just in case the promised sun doesn’t come out.

Drew is busy out in the kitchen getting the Jamm’n Sweet Tater soup made. Ya gotta love a man who cooks, especially one who does it at 3am! He rolled over in bed, gave my butt a pat and whispered “it’s time to make the donuts!” That’s his standard remark every Saturday…guess he feels like a baker does starting his day off so early. HaHa He came in the house to get another cup of coffee and he had one of those not so happy looks on his face. Uh oh, something must be wrong. It’s the potatoes!!! He’s mumbling something about having another fine reason to shop at the farmers market…the “store bought” Yukon Gold potatoes are not gold, they’re plain old white taters! Hope there’s enough starch to pull the soup together without having to add something else. He’ll figure something out, he always does.

How about a recipe for something to enjoy while watching all of those college football games today…
