Oh, what a glorious thing - a trip to the Farmers Market!
I didn't fill my basket as full as I usually do - I decided to streamline my buying with tomorrow's "Girls Night" in mind.
My Ranch-friend is having the Girls up for appies and drinks (I can hear the blender now...ahhh...) so I bought garlic, a baguette and gorgeous tomatoes to make bruschetta for the gathering. (The sunflowers and apricots are a treat for me!) I'll add a pepper from my garden, and some basil from my herb pot, and a pinch of mozzarella for the top. A quick broil, and voila! A light, flavourful snack.
The only downside, is that we can't have a bonfire as we usually do, because the area is so dry right now. But that's okay - we should be able to resume our bonfire nights next month if we get some rain.
There really is nothing better than sitting down at a farm table full of flickering candles, and appetizers, with a lime daquiri in hand, surrounded by my funny, wild, lovely friends!
