One of the moms from the mommy group (that I found on meetup.com), her son, my son and I went to the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. Both of us are avid farmer’s market consumers and this was our second trip together.
Right now the main reason we are going is to get avocados from the “avocado lady.” I just realized I don’t know the name of her stand but she has the most amazing avocados. Milan just loves them! As soon as he sees one he starts whining for it (yes, I know I need to stop him from whining, but he’s just so darn vocal). He eats it straight out of the shell – I just squeeze it for him so the avocado smushes out and he takes a bite!
He also goes nuts whenever he sees plums or peaches. He has one or the other nearly every day. So of course when we were at the market and I bought some plums, he started to go crazy until I gave him one. He ate that plum so fast I couldn’t believe it. I only got two bites – the first one to get it started for him and the last one to eat the little bit of plum flesh off of the seed. He’s turning into a little piggy, which if you saw his little skinny butt you’d be surprised at how much he eats.
After the farmer’s market we headed off to get some inexpensive meat and cheese at Jons in West Hollywood. I love this place. They have all kinds of ethnic foods, especially eastern european. My husband’s family is originally from Bulgaria so I picked up a bunch of random items from Bulgaria, like Bulgarian feta, Bulgarian beer and Bulgarian yogurt.
I’m totally looking forward to trying out some new meals this week!
