The Husband called me up on my way home and asked if I wanted to go on a “date” with him to the Farmer’s Market! I tell ya, that boy definitely knows the way to my heart – obviously my answer was YES!!!
I really wanted to walk to the market but it was just too hot outside so we took a short drive there, parked and strolled through the market checking out all the fruit and veggie samples. YUM!
We scored some fantastic deals (I spared you all so many pix again):
* 5 ears white corn for $1
* 1 BIG cantaloupe for $1.50
* 3.5 lbs of nectarines/pluots/peaches for $1/lb
And THESE TWO fantastic HUMMUS spreads. The Hummus Guy had like 20 flavors to choose from so I went with two that are different. I LOVE the spice of the harissa in the black bean and the artichoke is just plain good with the roasted garlic. I cannot wait to make up a hummus wrap using these!
I visited the ridiculously priced shaved ice vendor again because it’s one of my favorite things. This time I bought a large 1/2 banana and 1/2 bubble gum to share with The Husband. (Yup, still a rip off at $3.75 but totally worth it in the heat!)
The Husband wanted to get his beef stick, but, they were all out. So he settled for the grilled teriyaki chicken.
And I stole a little piece – I LOVE grilled chicken.
We decided to stop at the new Pizza By The Slice place that just opened up, Evelyn’s Big Italian Pizzeria. I LOVE the story of the owner’s and how they started out in Italy with their pizzeria before moving to NYC, Chicago and then California. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We sort of didn’t believe them when they told us that the pictures are the wall were the ACTUAL size of the pizza.
And then, our single slices came out! WOW – check out The Husband’s – that is a full size fork next to his piece.
My veggie pizza slice didn’t even fit on my plate!
That is some serious veggies too! Their tomato mixture was had a bruschetta flavor that packed a nice vinegar/herby punch. The dough was crispy and chewy and honestly pretty amazing!
I did my best, but only managed to eat about 1/2 of my piece. I should’ve cut it in half so I could have enjoyed that crust! I did cut a small piece of it off. We ate outside in the shade and it was just so nice.
We pondered heading to the movies to see The Proposal, but, The Husband didn’t think he could stay up that long. We are relaxing now and getting ready to call it a night!
