Someone really needs to take me by the hand the next time I go to our local farmer's market. I can't seem to grasp that I'm buying for only two people. For some reason, with or without a list, I come home with too much produce. It's strange because I don't do that when doing our other grocery shopping. It seems to be a dilemma that's unique to the farmer's market. I think the issue is that I'm so overwhelmed with joy to see such a wide array of healthy, locally grown, and organic produce, that I can't help but buy just a little more of this and a tad more of that. Consequently, we are getting much more than the minimum number of daily vegetable servings these days and I think my skin is turning green from all of the lettuce and spinach I've eaten. Will I change my tune? Probably not. It's just too delightful to have crisp, fresh produce for our meals. What a gift from nature's bounty!
