Farmer's Market Season is here!

I'm lucky, I live a few minutes from a pretty fantastic Farmer's Market.

This was our trunk when we left the market.  It was full of fresh fruits, veggies and a box of frozen fish.

 I love cherries so much.  These are probably my favorite, but they weren't as good as I'd hoped.  Definitely not as good as the Ranier cherries we had last week.

Fresh cucumbers and tomatoes from Broxburn in Lethbridge.

 Some fresh strawberries.  I don't know how they make them so flavorless in the grocery stores.

I'm not normally a fan of tomatoes. I am trying to be a bigger grown-up about the whole vegetable thing overall though so I'm willing to have toasted tomato sandwiches now and again.  These ones did make an especially flavorful sandwich so maybe this growing up thing is working for me.

Overall, we're trying to eat more produce and more fish.  They say we should be eating fish once a week.  We both like fish, it's just not something we cook a lot of.  So tonight we had steamed salmon with rice and a nice salad for dinner.  It's a start at eating a healthier anyway.

Normally, we cook our salmon on a cedar plank on the BBQ.  Next time, I'll get some pictures and maybe even post a recipe.
