Fried Green Tomatoes, Two Spicy Sauces and One Great Burger

So, I was at the Farmers Market the other day, where I could probably hang out everyday if it was possible, and I saw some great things: fruit, artichoke flowers, colorful purses, Z-pies (frozen little pot pies), cheeses, breads and–Green Tomatoes!

I do love Farmers Markets and I do love Fried Green Tomatoes.  I also purchased some Buffalo Mozzarella from Dedrick’s Cheese (a little cheese shop based in Placerville.)

Out of Africa or The Healing Power of a Simple Chicken

My daughter (right) and a good friend who adventured with her and an elephant

I have been missing the last couple of weeks, but I’ve had very good reasons.  First my daughter returned from Africa.  She had been there for a little over 5 months working in a Day Home (of sorts) for Street Boys.

You can’t “beet” the Farmers Market

Last Saturday I stopped by the Placerville Farmers Market for the first time this year.  I was amazed at all the fresh fruits and veggies that were available this early in the season.  I was also surprised about the amount of people that were there until I remembered that the Wagon Train was in town for their annual parade.  I did not stick around for that, because it gets kind of crazy in town, but it is certainly an interesting and fun event that’s been around a very long time.

Placerville closed for Wagon Train Parade

A Simple Saturday Night Meal or Barbecue Chicken and Fried Baby Artichokes

Barbecue Chicken, roasted asparagus, fried baby artichokes with Greek Yogurt dip and red grapes

It had been a long day of work-outside-in-the-yard for Y!C! on Saturday. We ordered some useful-yet-decorative cement blocks for the yard, so Y!C! and my youngest son hauled those around to make our yard look a bit more tidy.

Memorial Day Hamburger Grill or Thank you for the ultimate Gift…my freedom

Freshly ground hamburger, grilled, with Provolone, fresh tomato and lettuce with a Ciabatta Bun. Grilled Corn with Lime Compound butter. O’Rings with spicy dipping sauce.

Memorial Day!  A day to remember and thank God for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect my freedom.  A day to celebrate. My dad and my grandfathers and my husband’s father all served in the armed services.  Thankfully, none of them gave their lives, although my grandfather’s ship was hit by a Kamikaze plane and many men died.  They served and were proud of their service.  They have all passed away now and I remember them and their bravery on this day.

Thank you for your service and my freedom
