Today was the first day of the farmer's market in our neighborhood. It's just a short walk from our house and I was happy to discover that one of my favorite farmers there is now carrying fresh eggs. A happy day indeed, although blisteringly hot. I came back with eggs, spinach, arugula and some lemon honey fromage blanc. And some advice from the cheese maker: the fromage blanc is way to good to let your kids have any. Point well taken! Sorry kids.

I love those bluey-greeny eggs! cool! I never let my kids have any fromage either. It's not very motherly of me, I know...... but sometimes you just get tired of people taking your toast and walking round with it until it's cold and then claiming they don't like it. Not bitter at all. Nevermind.

These are beautiful pictures Jill! I can't believe we are having such different weather...Yesterday looked like December here and it sounds like you've got full blown summer on your hands. Stay cool!
(whenever I write that - stay cool - i think about writing in the junior high school yearbook and am pretty sure that is what we all wrote to each. stay cool man, stay cool. lol)

hi andrea!

bananasaurus, i'm glad you can relate :) yeah, my kids are always doing the i want a big piece of something and then deciding they don't like it half way through. that or actually going through really expensive stuff like organic berries or sushi in like two minutes.

orange sugar, fresh eggs were the only thing missing from our farmer's market last year. now it has reached perfection. maybe your's will come on board in the future too?

thanks, denise!

hey rebekah,
today is like 65 degrees...crazy. but i'm happier out of the really hot stuff. i could barely think yesterday and thus spent way too much time figuring out twitter, ha!
yeah, i think we wrote stay cool in our yearbooks too, mine are still at my parents house. my brother and i got all our old yearbooks out last summer when we were visiting my parents and had a huge laugh!

The egg photo is stunning, really beautiful. You should print it and make it part of your collection of postcards!

We've been getting a dozen eggs a week (some of them blue, some of them brown, some of them whitish) from a local farmer. Want to hear what's crazy?? He only charges us $1.50 a dozen. For organic eggs!!! I want to pay the man more, but he refuses. Insanity. Delicious, though.
