Gabe and I went to Haymarket on Saturday. We did get a lot, but it wasn't the enthralling experience I had anticipated. Lots of mean, loud, cranky people. Oh well. Since then I made naan bread, chicken curry, apple-ginger chutney, zucchini bread, and sesame bars. For lunch today I made mashed potatoes with a sausage, apple and fennel mixture on top. Alton Brown is on tv at the moment teaching me about freezing, which is very timely, so I can deal with all the leftovers.
After Haymarket I went to the regular food store. The only thing I remember about that now was this simultaneously innocent and horrifying scene. Two little girls, probably about 5, were in a big cart together playing while their supervising female was down the aisle buying bread. They both had colorful beach balls and were hitting the food in the cart in front of them. Through the giggles, one girl said "I'm pretending I'm beating up my boyfriend because he was mean to me." The other girl repeated it louder and they both burst into more laughter.
