A very good food day

Still Life from Granville Island MarketStill life with Fruit and Veg­eta­bles from Granville Market

Hav­ing a farmer’s mar­ket near­by (in our case, Granville Island) means that we not only get pret­ty ‘still life’ pic­tures like this one, but some days are par­tic­u­lar­ly good, food-wise.
Break­fast today was a big bowl of fresh peach­es, rasp­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries and straw­ber­ries, toast, and scram­bled organ­ic eggs. Lunch was mixed greens and the last of those cher­ry toma­toes, brie, butterkäse, coun­try paté and french bread. For din­ner, we had local­ly grown roast­ed pota­toes and rose­mary, steamed pat­ty-pan squash with car­rots and pork chops with sautéed onions, fresh chopped sage and olives. Not too shabby.

The next day was­n’t bad either, espe­cial­ly din­ner: Filets of Sole with lemon, but­ter and pars­ley, Cous­cous with shred­ded parme­san and fresh Swiss Chard (from the farmer him­self this morn­ing — Thurs­day is when the truck mar­ket sets up just out­side Granville Mar­ket and you get to meet and deal with the farm­ers face-to-face. I make it a point to make it to Granville Island that day — it reminds me of the won­der­ful Farmer’s mar­kets we used to go to in Wait­s­field, Vermont.)
