I went to the Westport Farmers Market last week and shot a few pics with my new lens. If you haven't been this year yet, you should really stop by. It's open every Thursday from 10-2pm and everything is organic and beautiful and so delicious. I couldn't stop trying all the free tasters!
I met Jane today of Jane's Good Food. She makes the best homemade pickles and relish. I also tried her toasted walnuts with a paprika rub and fresh rosemary- YUM! Jane told me her mom always said "eat like you mean it" and if you stop by Jane's stand, you definitely will.
My favorite thing today was probably the "ice cream". It's really a hand crafted non-dairy frozen dessert because it's vegan and dairy free but I still liked it! I was VERY skeptical at first but the little girls selling it were so cute and convinced me to try it. Thank god they did because now its in my freezer
I returned home from three days on Nantucket this afternoon and I'm already missing it. The weather was perfect, the island was in full bloom (we actually saw people "stop and smell the roses")
and the company; just a pleasure.
Our first night on the island, we celebrated my friend's birthday at Cliffside Beach.
The sunset was spectacular.
The following morning we awoke in our favorite inn to the aroma of fresh baked
banana muffins with a brown sugar glaze. Heaven!
Our days were spent mostly lounging on Cisco and Miacomet Beach.
Here is the view from my beach chair.
We returned back to the room just in time for afternoon tea. I don't drink tea but the homemade cupcakes with coconut cream cheese frosting were so delicious and I don't even like coconut!
After dinner we ambled around the pretty Nantucket town and ended every night with ice cream from The Juice Bar! THE BEST ice cream in the world! (seriously)
No pictures of it though, I ate it too fast. :)
I do have a cute pic of my friends from the trip though. Could they look any happier?
And here is my blog post from last year's trip, if you need a little more Nantucket!
