Farmers’ Market Visit
I’m back! Sorry for the long break, but I think I have a pretty good excuse: I got married!! It was crazy, stressful, fun, beautiful…everything typical of a wedding. And along with gaining a husband, I moved from my parents’ place in suburban west Oahu to a small apartment in Honolulu. What a big change! One plus is that I can get to a new farmers’ market — the Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation’s Wednesday Farmers Market @ the Neil Blaisdell Center. If you live or work in town, it’s happening on Wednesdays from 4 pm to 7 pm. It looks pretty small from the road, but it’s packed with stands offering veggies, fruits, cheese, even dried marlin and plate lunches (or dinners). Yum!! I grabbed us some baby romaines, bananas and sweet basil…all for less than $10.
A side note: tonight’s dinner is a beef stew with dill sauce made from dill I’m growing on our lanai. It’s my first attempt at this recipe and using a slow cooker. Smells good and the slow cooker didn’t explode, so I’m counting this one as a success so far.
