We went to the fruit stand this weekend. I know that may sound like a strange outing but it is sorta like Disneyland to my kids!! Seriously!! I think that they would like it if they got left behind there!! They love looking at all the fruits and veggies and they beg like kids at a candy store for all the goodies. (Have you ever heard a kid say "PLEASE MOMMY, BUY SOME BEETS!!!!") I confess that the fruit stand is one of my favorite places as well. I love the smells and the colors and the atmosphere. I also feel so good about getting things that are so healthy and tasty. Our stand publishes a newsletter that has great recipes that I look forward to every month. It is a sad day at the end of October when our stand closes for the winter and I count the days until March arrives and it opens again. Until then I will be enjoying all the unusual squashes and cabbages and BEETS that we will have from our local fruit stand.
