Mind over Matter was the name of the game yesterday. I ignored things like my inability to breathe out of one nostril, the weird whistling sounds that happens right before I try to talk, the fact that I can't keep anything in my system for longer than 24 hours and the oozy, licky, icky spots my dog's been giving herself all over her fur. Denial looks pretty on me, don't you think?!
Here are a few things that ensured I had my way with Thursday, most of them being Farmer's Market related (No flirting was involved though. Sausage Guy is gone, people. Let it go.):
Copper Pot guy was back at the Penn Quarter Farmer's Market, so I could buy this sauce. Yes, it's as good as it sounds. Yes, sometimes I eat it by itself with a fork (it's chunky). No, I'm not embarrassed that I cried a little when I saw it sitting there glistening in the sunlight under the tent.
Zomppa article this Tuesday for Watercress Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette and Cheddar Croutons, the one guy took out a pen and wrote "zomppa" down on his hand while I spelled it. Farmers are awesome.
Plus, my friends are really nice and sent me lots of little love emails. Thank you, friends.
I forgot to link to this week's M@M Zomppa recipe- Watercress Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette and Cheddar Croutons. Here it is.
You should make it if only for the strawberry vinaigrette or the cheddar cheese croutons. Yum.
I think I should probably lie down now.
