Before Summer Slips Away

A brief interlude on a busy weekend to share a few pictures from the local Farmer's Market  . . . before summer slips away.











And home to make meal plans and prepare for a week's worth of cooking.  We really need to get back to the basics.  I've had a spell of summer laziness in the kitchen and haven't felt like cooking at all. 


Wishing you home-cooked meals,  Donna

  1. Just nothing like summer for wonderful tomatoes and gorgeous raspberries. One of my most favorite fruits. Just pick some up at the grocery a few minutes ago. I usually make a crock pot meal on the weekend to eat during the week. Last week it was turkey chili, this week will be cauliflower soup. I can eat soup when it is 112 which it is today. Can't wait for summer to be over not like most of the country who don't want it to end.

  4. Having spent my entire childhood (from 5 years old to 18) with my daddy on the farmer's market in Roanoke selling our produce from the farm...well markets like this hold a very special place in my heart!! I adore that image of the watermelons and that red truck. So many memories for me in that photo. The markets here in the city are over the top and the produce coming out of up state New York and New Jersey are just unbelievable. So spoiled here! It's hard to believe that summer is almost over...where does the time go? xo!

  5. Doesn't the summer months just pass by too quickly? It's so fun to see your local produce and such an abundance of nice vegetables and fruits. I like seeing how locals canned their jams mixed with some hot pepper, plus I love seeing the newspaper with the current day local weather, and river levels. All for the love of summer! I too need to get back to meal preparations, as I've been a slacker this summer, excusing myself from the kitchen to enjoy the warm days and sunshine, or rain.

  7. I am too hot at our farmer's market to think about taking pictures! And yours are gorgeous--raspberries and okra! I'm crazy about the red truck and watermelon photo, too. Does that book really tell you how to plan and prepare meals? If so, I need a copy! The heat has addled the meal-planning part of my brain!

  8. I know what you mean about summer laziness, I have been feeling it too. Mostly I hate to take the time, or haven't had the time on the weekends to plan my menu for the upcoming week, but this weekend I finally got my act together, before summer slips away :)
