Hail to the Dinosaurs!
I just got back from the Farmer's
market with a ton of fresh veggies
and other great stuff.
We grow many of our own veggies in
our backyard garden, but we don't
grow everything we like, so we stock
up every Saturday morning at the
Today, I went there before breakfast,
so I was hungry. So I didn't just go
shopping. I attacked the place!
By the time I was done, I had
loaded up with the following:
1. One big bag of fresh greens (two
bunches of arugula, two bunches of
kale, and three bunches of Swiss
2. One bunch of golden beets with

4. One head of broccoli.
5. One big garlic clove.
6. Two bags of shitake mushrooms.
7. 15 to 20 heirloom tomatoes
(four or five different kinds, and

no way of storing any more than this.

fresh veggies -- lots of eggs from happy
chickens -- and locally raised, free-range
pork and grass-fed beef.
Now, you may ask, "How much did he pay
for all that?"
You'd be surprised. The prices at the
Farmer's Market are lower than grocery
store prices -- and the quality is
Plus, everything I bought was natural
and organic. No added chemicals. No
herbicides, fungicides, fumicides,
or people-cides. No preservatives.
Just good, fresh, wholesome, delicious
and nutritious food.
When I got home, I had my Steve Stanko
breakfast. He liked fried eggs over
fresh greens (endive and dandelion
greens were his favorites). I had
four fried eggs over a big plate of
mixed greens and herbs -- along with
two small tomatoes, several sliced
radishes and one medium heirloom
I figure if it was good enough for
Steve Stanko, it's good enough for me.
