Yes, it was a Farmer’s Market day today! As I’ve written before, the Penn Quarter Farmers Market, here in Washington DC, is amazing! It’s held every Thursday and we’ve been purchasing various fruits, vegetables, meats and eggs from there every week, it’s something I look forward to!
For over a week I’ve been craving a vegetable salad. Just fresh veggies- easy and simple! The weather has also cooperated today, it wasn’t too hot, which made it even better. After making dinner, we went up on the roof and had our delicious salad, with some wine. There was a nice breeze, and it wasn’t hot and humid. Couldn’t have asked for a better Thursday night dinner. I think there will be many more of these as the summer continues.
