Labor Day Weekend Treats

Happy Labor Day, Americans! S was away on Friday and Saturday, so I took the opportunity to get up early(ish) and hit up the West Side Community Market all by my onesies. Sure, we’re getting another CSA basket on Wednesday, but a girl needs her fresh produce fix in the meantime. ;)

I picked up some beautiful, vibrant tomatoes…

Love my Pyrex!

…and an equally colorful eggplant.

Large light purple eggplant with white striations.


I also snagged a head of garlic and a quart of apple cider. I know it’s not quite apple season yet, but I couldn’t resist! Sadly, this cider was not the best I’d ever had… but it’ll tide me over until the kind made with honeycrisp comes out. Mmmm.

What did you do this weekend?

I’ll be back later this week with more travel tales. :)
