Our Weekend

This weekend we decided to go to the Shreveport Farmer's Market before hitting the sales.
 
I think it is very pricey, but there was a lot of people there this weekend.  They open at 7 am and we were there around 7:05, but it was already packed.  We spent about $25 for tomatoes, corn and patty pan squash. 
  
 
I stuffed the squash with mushrooms, onions, bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. 

 
After this stop, we made our way to 4 estate sales, and I only ended up with this:
 
 
I picked up Ernie for Baby (Toddler) A.  When he moves to his big-boy room, it will be done in Sesame Street.  Ernie talks and was brand new.  Total: $3.75
 
We managed to leave the house today, which doesn't usually happen on Sunday's.  When we lived in Germany, everything was closed on Sundays so we always stayed home.  That has carried over since we left there.  But, there was another Farmer's Market in Benton, which is about 5-10 minutes from our house, so off we went to check it out.  It was rather small, but quite a few people.


 
 
 
We managed to spend $13 for Texas sweet onions, peaches and yellow squash, so a little cheaper than yesterday, but not by much.
 


For dinner, we used Rick Bayless' Mexican Everyday cookbook.  It included Smoky Chipotle Salsa with Pan-Roasted Tomatillos (I'm not a fan of tomatillos, but their taste is very subtle in this recipe) and Red Chile Chicken and Rice with Black Beans, which I've apparently made before, but can't remember it.
