Just real quick…

This past week has been crunch time, so I’ll post more soon about out delightful interaction with Cowboy Kettle Corn and Herrin Veggie’s, but for now just two quick things from last weeks market. Nasturtiums in the lettuce mix at LOTFOTL…     … and the August 17, 2013 DOG OF THE WEEK!    Continue reading “Just real quick…”

I love Bay View, and now I know even more about it!

This past weekend was FULL for myself, my husband, and my father who was visiting from out of town. His visits always prompt us to do things we’ve never done in Milwaukee (we have only been here a year and a half). We had an amazing dinner at Braise, pork fat budino… what!?! We wentContinue reading “I love Bay View, and now I know even more about it!”

Mandolin music brought me back to life.

Either way, ice coffee from Anodyne and a crepe was just what the doctor ordered. Believe it or not, this was ourContinue reading “Would you like powdered sugar on that?”

Well, I wish I could start this blog without mentioning the sprit it takes to overcome the dreary and cold rain, but it looks like we’ll just have to hope for more inviting weather next week. As per usual, the market was bustling this morning despite the weather, and we had a jolly good time.Continue reading “A White Mulberry?!?”

Delightful all the same.

Even though we all woke up to a rainy morning last Saturday, the market was still a success. Our neighborhood is most certainly dedicated to good food. I arrived promptly at 8:00am, and could only stay a little while, as my dear friend and I were about to embark on a road trip to visitContinue reading “Delightful all the same.”

SSFM is back!!!

After a long, cold, oppressive spring, my husband and I just went to the first South Shore Farmers Market of the 2013 season!  Last year we started going weekly, and quickly found it was our favorite activity of the week.  What’s not to like?  Food directly from your farmers that tastes better than anything fromContinue reading “SSFM is back!!!”
