Market glory

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is one of the best days to go to the Santa Monica Farmer's Market - if you go early. The vendors bring special things for holiday cooks, and everything looks so beautiful.

I didn't get to go today. Work was too crazy today. And, honestly, I'm not cooking at all this weekend, because we've been invited to friends. "Can I bring something?" I asked. "A pie or dessert?" No, I was told, there are already going to be five pies there!! Can't wait!

But here are some pictures of the Santa Monica Wednesday Farmer's Market - last year before Thanksgiving. Beautiful multi-colored chard, bright kabocha squash, and buckets and buckets of flowers.

Have a wonderful holiday, everyone!

Happy, Happy!

And never forget: If it was fun, they wouldn't call it work.

Happy Thanksgiving, Glennis.

I'm not sure you need pie because you are already a sweetheart. ;-)
