eei eei o

A bunch of beautiful fuego radish.
Some stunning extra large shiitake mushrooms.
Sugar & gluten free sweet potato muffins
A gorgeous bouquet of lilacs for $7. a bunch
Just a few things I picked up at the cabbage town farmer's market today.
everything grown locally and organically.
Lulu had lots of fun checking out what all the vendors had to offer.
I wish I had thought to bring more cash with me as there were other goodies I would have loved to pick up.
after we perused everything and chased a few dozen pigeons through the park, Lulu and I went to visit the animals at the farm.
how great is it that there is a fully functioning animal farm in the middle of the city?
I also love that this is the time of year when there are so many great farmers markets around the city.
I used the shiitake in a dish called sang choy bow for dinner tonight and they were delicious.
I used minced chicken instead of pork and added extra shiitake and bamboo shoots.
super healthy and super delicious.
not sure what I'm going to do with the radish for tomorrow.
I'm thinking of something simple like crudites with a homemade cornichon dip.
I also picked up some red, yellow and orange peppers at my local which might work nicely.

I love the farmers market. The sang choy bow sounds de-lish. I'll have to try it... I had lots of luck with the slow cooked chicken with basmati rice. One of our new favs. :)

We're getting a new farmers market in Withrow park too. i work this Saturday, but look forward to visiting it in coming weeks. It's the talk of the neighbourhood!
