Yesterday Mary Ellen took me to a local farm where she usually goes once a week to buy her produce. It was a vegetarian’s dream! For only 10 euro I bought a huge crate filled with assorted veggies. Fresh garden-grown eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, several heads of lettuce, topped with tonnes of basil.
I also had my first trip to the grocery store. Oh how I have missed the yogurt and cheese!! I saw bottles of wine for 79cents….about $1.10 CDN….and Matea got to see her first skinned rabbit. I picked out my favourite chèvre cheese for a treat, and I bought George ‘petite suisse’….a very thick cream type thing that you dump out onto a plate and sprinkle with sugar. yum!
