Thursday was our day for shopping adventures. Jessica, leader of Misawa Home Educators, had offered to take me to her favorite Farmer's Market several times. Several have offered, and I plan to take everyone up on their offers until I've been to all of them. ::snort::
I called Jessica and asked if she'd really like to take us out. She did. After the tire thing....we commenced to explore. This is NEAR our home. I'd say less than 2 minutes from our home.
This place had EVERYTHING....produce, crafts, honey, rabbits, restaurants, a pony and greenhouses. I was able to pick up tomatoes, potatoes, apples, cucumbers,green beans, corn on the cob, spinach, carrots...FRESH.....lots of things.....
Would you believe this innocent pony tried to drag Nolan into the pen with him?
I bet these don't cost me $2.09 a lb!
An-tic-i- paaaaa- tion
This is a Japanese fast food....they are cooked and you can pop them in your mouth...not sure what they are...they taste like a baked potato...mostly.
OH - they also had a foot onsen. We enjoyed. HOT water! Several commented it would be fun to go completely in...maybe I'll find someone to go to the Onsens with me yet. THOUGH I did have to keep fighting off thoughts of athlete's foot. ::snort::
*Note you will not get Onsen photos when we go to full blown Onsen. ::snort::
After the Farmer's Market we stopped at Homac.... Misawa's version of Lowes....and Universe so I could pick up some bananas and lettuce, which they didn't have at the Farmer's Market. Universe is a big grocery store...I'd say like HEB or Albertsons.
These are SO good, though the kids wish they were seedless.
Stacia LOVES these baskets. I need to buy a basket for the Farmer's Market...and remember to take BAGS with me to the off base stores where they charge you for plastic bags.
I still haven't bought one of these since the move...this one would be a bit over $8. Do you SEE what I mean about the best of the best being sold? They are handpicked and wrapped and are to be bought as gifts for hosts or shrines....so if any local folks are looking for a hostess gift sometime - may I suggest that I'd LOVE a cantaloupe or a watermelon? ::snort:: Of course, I need a home to invite you to first! ::snort::
Hmmm...not enough for a side dish but just about enough cauliflower for a salad.
