Summer beauties

20 August 2011 § 6 Comments

I wanted to go to the Montclair Farmers’ Market early for once, but made it just before everyone started packing up. I love leisurely weekends, but we really take it to the extreme.

Then my camera battery lost power so I only got a few pictures.

The summer colors were splendifierous – blood red tomatoes, orange colored peaches, the pastel yellows and greens of the summer squash. The first apples of the year were there, hinting that the summer bounty will soon be gone. In the mean time I will continue to enjoy the tomatoes: tomatoes were plentiful – cherry, campari, plum, mis-shaped heirloom tomatoes the size of melons.

I bought plenty of tomatoes and some beets, how could I not? So next week we will be enjoying cold soups: gazpacho and borscht (not at the same time though). The Russian soup is to go with the caviar and vodka King Marv brought home from Moscow. I feel that just caviar and vodka is just a tad too decadent, we need something healthy to go with it. Check back next week for those soup recipes.
