Today, we went to the market, out for coffee and then to the natural food store and my favourite baking supply shop. Later on, we dropped by the grocery store.
Here is our haul from the Farmer's Market:
- a large bag of gala apples
- a large bag of pears
- organic broccoli (This isn't local, but sometimes in the winter we are desperate. I like that this is actually a local farm which supplements their income in the winter by bringing in a bit of high-quality organic produce.)
- an organic avocado (ditto to above)
- 1/2 lb black forest ham
- some honey-garlic sausages
- 3 kg. pail of delicious raw honey
- 3 containers of half & half cream for coffee - I like this kind because the ingredients are: (get ready, now...) cream, milk. (Here are the ingredients in the cream we used to get from the grocery store: milk, cream, sodium citrate, sodium phosphate, carrageenan)
- 1 container of sour cream - Guess what's in this? Just cream, bacterial culture. It is actually real cultured sour cream, not something that has been chemically 'soured'.
- a nice big bottle of cod liver oil capsules - this is the only supplement we take on any regular basis. I particularly like it in the winter when we are indoors a lot and aren't eating as wide a variety of foods as we are in the summer. I like it because it is a food supplement, not a faked up one.
- large package of yeast
- unsulfured banana chips
- unsulfured and unsweetened dried pineapple
- unsulfured dried cranberries
- brown sugar
- 10 lbs butter
- I possibly bought some chocolate easter eggs, too, but I can't take a picture of them because someone ate them on the way home.
