Ahhhh, summertime and sometimes the living is easy and sometimes it isn't. And sometimes when we realize our harvest (or the fridge) is close to nil, nada, zilch, T and I go to the Athens Farmers Market. Found a lovely Russian Black heirloom tomato this time (to the right there, and they are as good as they look!) and a butternut squash with a delightful butternut squash and apple soup "receipt", and some great soups and breads. The apricot scone at the bakery tent was delish! and filling without being heavy.
While there, T and I checked out each and every tent including Slow Foods U.S.A. , which is where we picked up this fabulous postcard.
I have to tell you. This is how I see America, getting 'er done, tromping thru the fields with a terrible swift sword of her own, only it's not a sword. "Get out of my way, I got kids to feed. Stand up or stand down, Mister!" Isn't this concept great?!
I might have to duplicate this outfit for November's election night. THIS gal is who we need to vote for, imho. To find out more go to http://www.slowfoodsusa.org/
And I had a delicious cup of coffee (again, fair trade, etc.) called Aldo's Coffee where I picked up THIS postcard from 1000 Faces Coffee. Resist Bad Coffee!
LOL. No kidding! Now I admit, I have been drinking coffee since I was four or five. Yes. Years old. They put cream and sugar in it to cut the caffeine -- they thought this was good -- totally forgetting about the zippity-doodah effects of the sugar. No wonder I never wanted to take a nap! And that is how I drink it now.
We gave Joe one of these too, a couple of days later. He is a coffeehound from the word "Go." So is Pita. You might remember seeing them on this little blog before. We meet them at Starbucks (I know, I know) once or twice a week among other places, so we thought they would get a big kick out of the "Resist Bad Coffee".
YUM. Now I personally prefer Community Coffee & Chicory New Orleans Blend, when left to my own devices. But I do have to admit, Aldo's is good to the last drop, too!
This weekend is going to be an incredibly busy and artful weekend for Me. Busy in a good way. I am finishing up the ShadowBox and also doing some fun stuff I haven't talked about. Cross your fingers! I still will probably drink a pot of the most illustrious java (to the right here) before Kitten comes over for Our Art Day Sunday.
Until then, I plan on getting more of what I love.
You do the same.
