food love.

I'm feeling much better thanks to the z-pack. This morning Brandon and I went to the Memphis Farmer's Market. It's down in the South Main District at the train station. We had a super fun time. I had been dying to go for weeks, and it did not disappoint. I even found this heart shaped new potato amongst my purchases.
We did some "cook-storming," which basically means, I brainstorm about what I should cook based on the available ingredients. We're still in the middle of the Apostle's fast so a veggie-centric meal is the most fasting friendly way to cook!

We got blueberries, eggplant, new potatoes, honey, honeycomb, kalamata olive bread, sourdough bread, rosemary garlic goat cheese (for tomorrow's feast of Saints Peter and Paul,) white summer squash (the vendor didn't know the name, it's white and looks like it's from outer space,) and Brandon bought me a rosemary plant. The rosemary plant is funny because I lost a rosemary plant at a white elephant party this last Christmas. I've been bitter ever since.
I also got this awesome handmade butter dish. It makes me very happy. It'll be holding margarine tonight, but it'll fulfill it's true butter purpose in life tomorrow when the fast is over! Tonight's Menu: Spanish Eggplant, Grilled Summer Squash, Roasted Rosemary Potatoes, Kalamata Olive Bread, and Honey Blueberry Crumble. Check out the apron in the above picture; it was a gift from my sweet Brandon.

Oh, and the picture below is from last Saturday at my cousin Shey's wedding. Just so you could have your Brandon and Caitlyn fix for the week. Wow, I just realized how sticky sweet this post is, I apologize.
Happy Saturday... Enjoy some food lovin' tonight!
