Simple Pleasure Sunday: Shopping at a Farmer's Market

Today's post is brought to you by summer. I enjoy shopping for vegetables at a farmer's market during July and August. On this beautiful Sunday morning, I purchased plum tomatoes and zucchini at a local farmstand.

Tomatoes that are red on the outside as well as on the inside are delicious. I intend to make my famous bruschetta with them. I will probably thickly slice a couple and season with a bit of salt and freshly ground pepper as a side to a burger.

The zucchini that are much bigger than the ones sold at the grocery store will be sauteed and go in simple pasta dishes throughout the week.

It's really summer when I've made bruschetta. I use this recipe. In my variation, I seed plum tomatoes, rub the grilled sliced baguette with a cut garlic clove, and do not add garlic to the tomato mixture. I also add a touch of balsamic vinegar to the topping.


  1. Fresh produce from the farmer's market is the best!

    1. It really is. So flavorful. I enjoyed my penne with sauteed zucchini lunch and my bruschetta dinner today.
