I love the idea of the Farmers' Market. Tons of fresh vegetables and fruit for relatively cheap prices. Automatically, I start feeling healthier.
Then I get there, and unfortunately, the market here sells things in already set, fairly large quantities, instead of by the pound or the piece. That's great for a family of four. It's a little tough when it's just me -- or even me and the boyfriend. One zucchini is all I need for dinner - but I now have six.
So, like Bubba from Forrest Gump, I'm trying to figure out my options: zucchini bread, zucchini and pasta, fried, grilled...
I'll keep going back to the market, hoping the vendors will invest in scales. In the meantime, my vegetable repertoire is expanding rapidly. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them!
