I look forward to every Friday, every week. Not for the typical reasons as most though, I look forward to this day because it means one thing...Farmers Market, but most important about that is fresh, hand-made, potato tacos. I crave these delights all week long. I want them for dinner on the day I just had them for lunch. One of the best parts is there isn't any meat so I can have my num-num during lent. The tortillas are pressed and grilled right before my eyes, I enjoy mine with creme, salsa verde, queso, cilantro, wee bit o' onion and to top it all, strawberry lemonade...maybe I will buy fresh flowers this week too, and indulge in some just-made cheddar-korn as well....Happy Friday.

I love Trader Joes. They have amazing foods, like the seafood sausages made with shrimp, white fish and scallops....soooo good. Best peanut butter cups ever, best peanut butter for that matter, no sugar added and I can literally eat it with a spoon (never been one for that tendency before). What else...what else...oh! They have Sashimi grade Ahi, Trader Mings microwavable Pad-Thai, best ranch dressing you will ever taste, cherry apple cider (during season), a variety of delectable cheeses and meats, seafood deals that keep my freezer full, a broad range of store brand wines that are under ten dollars and really, REALLY good. A favorite is the Vino Verde, notable by its green bottle, it is made only in Portugal...very light and soothing and a just bit of sparkle...best part...3.99, I gave this as a birthday gift to a wine connoisseur, her husband skeptical of the long neck but low and behold, they LOVED it. This store has a co-op sort of feel, organic goodies and just a simple straight forwardness I adore, in-out, bada-bing, bada-boom.
