I was planning to use up what are too many blueberries in the refrigerator
but we leave this week. Instead we're eating up what needs to be gone.
Tonight a veggie flatbread and green salad, both enhanced with the last
flavorful Roma tomatoes from my neighbor's garden.
I'll be freezing some foods - the remaining perishable items will go to our
neighbors. I overbuy sometimes as I love to see bowls of fresh fruits, and
of course vegetables, sitting on the kitchen island. The summer season for
eating fresh locally grown is now coming to an end . . . . . . by the time we
return even the weekend Farmers' Markets will be closed until next spring.
Blueberry-peach galette made earlier this summer.
P.S. Have you ever shopped at a Wegman's grocery? Our brand new store - first in the area - opened
just 5 mins. drive from here on Sunday. There was a lot of excitement in town. We waited until late
afternoon to stop for a quick look - well 'quick' was impossible as it's gigantic. We didn't plan to buy much as we're going away, but it was fun looking at so many specialty areas such as the cheese, seafood, wine etc. Last night on the local news we discovered we were two of 30,000 (yes that's thirty thousand) people who stopped by the store between 7 am and midnight on Sunday, amazing!
Talk about a 'destination store', this is it!
