Happy New Year to You ALL! Here in the southland of the USA it is quite chilly.....but it is January after all!
We've been in the city (the view of the midnight fireworks from our condo is fantastic, and the restaurants are so much fun!) and enjoyed a wonderful New Years Eve with our friends.
I was so relieved to find the 'out of use' dumpster still in place when we walked Barker last evening! Here's the sign I told you about
and here it is again, with the lovely view through the other side
collard greens and cornbread in the 6:00 position, Hoppin' John at 9:00, and then one lonely fried green tomato slice (its partner had already been inhaled by C) at 12:00, and a serving of squash casserole at 3:00. YUMMMMMM I enjoyed chicken and dumplings....so good!!!
Then we headed over to the Dekalb Farmers Market to do some heavy duty shopping. I had checked out some of Rayna's recipes and made a little list of things that I might be challenged to find in Gainesville. Here are just a few of the dried mushroom selection offered
As you enter the farmers market there is a large sign saying 'no photography', but I had my iPhone out, constantly checking my shopping list, so I thought that a few photos wouldn't hurt. It is such a phenomenal place! Then I thought I might be pushing my luck, so I took this one last pic of the lovely pineapple display
If you live nearby and have never gone, you need to make the trip. It's a phenomenal place and you can find almost anything your little heart could possibly desire!
HAPPY NEW YEAR
