Last night was the weekly Farmer's Market. Look at all the scrumptious goodies I brought home. Those are white peaches, so sweet and delicious.
Update: Here is a great recipe for cooking artichokes from The Magic Onions.
Here in Northern California we have Farmer's Markets year-round on the weekends, but the Wednesday night market held in the summer months is my favorite. There's a vendor that makes the most delicious butter chicken wrapped in naan. Yum. In the summer it's my standard Wednesday night dinner.
As some of you might know, my little sister got me hooked on Twilight a few months ago. We're both anxious to see New Moon when it comes out in November. In the meantime, she told me where to go for a vampire fix- True Blood, the HBO series. I watched the first few episodes on DVD and just started reading the books that it is based on.
If you're a Twilight fan, you might like the True Blood television series. Might. It's violent and the content is for mature audiences. Makes Twilight look like a Disney movie. I rarely watch anything violent, but after I saw the first True Blood DVD I couldn't stop thinking about the story and characters (I love movies and shows that stay with you like that) and ended up getting hooked on it. We'll see how the books compare.
I'm also reading 1,000 Artist Journal Pages for the Woollywotnots book club. I just bought it tonight and can't wait to dive in.
