Farmer's Market Thursday

The downtown Tacoma Farmer's Market opened for the season today. Boy, was it packed with people and all sorts of interesting things: handmade cheeses, all natural beef jerky, glass art, recycled yarn, soup, and plants, plants, plants.

I met Trevor for lunch and we ate at my favorite stand, "Peruvian Food." I had a chicken tamale and T had a tamale/chicken kabob combo. I like their hot sauce; it's hot, but not enough to make you cry, just to make your mouth tingle.

I bought green onions, cilantro, radishes, honey, and a nice big fat loaf of Grand Central Como bread. Also, a nice pair of glass earrings from a glass fusing artist. It's really delicious honey too. I enjoyed a slice of the como bread in the afternoon that was slathered in the honey.

For dinner, we grilled sandwiches on our waffle iron, one of our favorite things to do in the summer with a waffle iron. Como bread with Horizon organic swiss cheese stuffed with the green onions and radishes from the farmer's market. Paired with Famega Vinho Verde, a nice lightly sparkling wine from Portugal. Only $6 from World Market.

  1. Oh, yum, yum, yum! What a great idea for the waffle iron too -- I wish we still had one.
