A Trip to the Market

I have to say, the Market at 11 AM is a lot busier than at 3PM when we normally go. It took us almost five minutes just to find a parking space, whereas we can usually find one or find someone pulling out almost as soon as we get there.
What we got this week:
  • Celery
  • 2 heads of broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • A dozen red beet eggs
  • Butcher Bologna
  • A block of Cheddar cheese
  • Organic Strawberries
  • Half a watermelon
  • Blueberries
  • Organic red grapes for 99 cents a pound! For us, this is cheap even for grapes that aren't organic. We were shocked, but they look good and taste great.

We're having sort of an 'end-of-the-summer' cookout this weekend with family, which is why we got the bologna and cheese and some extra eggs, along with the watermelon.

The strawberries are just for me! We only got a little box :( some of the boxes didn't look so good. They were either very over-ripe or growing some of that fuzz strawberries can get. I guess we have to expect that since they come all the way across the country (Strawberries are only in season here in June, I think).

It was a good trip - but we have a ton of fruit now! The next couple bentos might be fruit-heavy.


6 days till school starts!
