The market was hopping today! I like heading over there before the after-work rush, when the produce is buffed and begging you to take it home! Eclipse Chocolat (sic) was there today, and the ‘usuals’ as well. I couldn’t leave without a small bouquet of Gerbera daisies, a couple of pints of freshly pressed apple cider, some pluots, macaroons, and a chocolate croissant. Oh, and some fresh ceviche for a post-yoga brunch tomorrow.

It's no secret, this is a must stop on any visit to the family farm. Jennifer is a self-taught culinary delight, and her quiches and all baked goods never fail to make any visit superb! I'm not quite sure what was in her *amazing* chocolate cake, but it inspired me to bake one for this upcoming weekend. Stay tuned...

Every time I stop by this little wonder on a visit to east Texas, I'm greeted by the staff and a taste of some freshly cut watermelon, peaches, tomatoes, or other Texas-grown produce. Delightful! They even have their own pecan sheller, a handy service for those who have tidied their yard under a Paper-Shell tree. My first taste of a Dublin Dr. Pepper was had on this visit. Made with real cane sugar, it is a rare find. Well, until it was discovered at my favorite pizza place upon returning to San Diego!
