What I liked the best, aside from seeing all the people, were the bargains! we got...
- 3 bunches of asparagus for $1
- 3 pounds of fresh spinach (still sandy) for $1
- 10 pounds of fresh ground beef for $15.99
We saw other bargains that we didn't buy but will remember like 2 containers of raspberries for $1, free range veal for $5.59 a pound, whole fish for $3.99 a pound, and blue crabs $25 a dozen.
It was sensory overload. We also came home with some things that we not bargains but worth the price. I got come homemade cured hot sausage for my hubby, homemade Italian pastries, a waxed ball of provolone, decaf apricot loose leaf tea, and there was probably more which I can't think of at this moment.
As a bonus, I got to meet one of the people running for mayor of Philadelphia. I don't live there, so I can't vote for him, but it was fun nonetheless.
I did not get around to making the Homemade Bagels, but do plan on trying tonight.
I think I will also be making this Vegetable Stirfry from Ari at Baking & Books tonight to go with my roasted chicken.
I promise to take pics and post them tomorrow.
Also... I am happy to announce that I am officially finished with classwork for the semester. I get 3 weeks off before my summer class starts... but that will be my last class and I will have my second Master's Degree! YEAH!
