Today is Wednesday (even though I won’t post this until Thursday) and that means Market Day! Yippee! I love starting my day at the Wilson Market.
I stopped for a light as I approached the market, and this nicely dressed young woman was in front of me. I dig her sweater/coat. And her skinny legs. Doesn’t she look chic?
I love the way the market looks when the lights are on and the morning is a little grey.
Each time I go to the market I try to make myself buy one new food. Today I bought two- Japanese eggplant and a roasted beet.
I am sure that many of you more adventurous types are familiar with these beauties, but they were new to me. I had a bad experience with the sticky sweet Harvard beets when I was but a child, and have been beet-phobic ever since. I know that these roasted beets are not to be found in the US, so wanted to try them here and see if I can grow to love the humble beet after all these years. Does anyone have a favorite way to prepare either of these? I am thinking a stir-fry for the cute and curvy eggplants, and a salad for the beet, but I am open to suggestions.
Y’all be sweet now. Ya hear?
