Or they offically call it “Fresh Market”. Opens every first and third Saturday from 10AM to 3PM. We bought a small pack of local grow fresh strawberries (pictured); a bunch of radish and a jar of produced local raw honey, fresh and delicious!
Pastries, vegetable and floral stands.
Alan made those. Without frosting, still delicious. I had 3 in one sitting, very bad!
The goat meat was quite tough and chewy, but flavor was good. I used Thai red curry paste, Chinese fermented bean paste, soy sauce, cilantro. The potatoes in the pot was delicious even I know it was super unhealthy. But once in a while I guess it won’t kill me, too soon.
A few healthy one pot dishes I made. Clockwise: Beef, sweet bell peppers, onions and broccoli stir fry; Quinoa stew Spanish style with grounded turkey and beef; Fresh spinach stir fry with peanuts, chicken and garlic sauce.
The day was very sunny like in the middle of the Summer but doesn’t have the humidity which was super nice!
Dressed up for today’s Chinese New Year party! Today it finally warmed up after three days of raining and chilling weather, a great start for the new year! I wish we all have a wonderful new year, full of joy, happiness and prosperity. Happy New Year :)

Fresh Fava beans, hadn’t had it for over decades. Bought less than a lb of them with pods. Came home, peeled them out of their pods and the skin. Oil in cast iron pan, heated, stir fry beans then added 2tbs water, 2tsp chicken bouillon, fresh summer squash from our garden, a bit of pepper (optional), tiny amount of homemade spicy fermented chili paste. Simmer till its done, throw a handful of frozen chopped green onions before serving.
