Things have been 'a-bustle' around 'Chez-SVELTE' with graduation parties, the annual family garage sale and the MANY preparations for summer... so needless to say, 'STUFFING-IT' has been a low priority item!
I did get out to a few sales with my parents during their visit last weekend. This sweet basket (with original contents!)followed us home. It put me in a 'MARKET' frame of mind.
Was it any wonder that I HAD to do a 'U-turn' on my way to work yesterday when I spotted signs for my favorite Summertime Farmers Market?!
While I was there perusing the stands, I noticed people scooping up bags of these 'curled greens'. I went in for a closer look. GARLIC SCAPES. I had seen these before on the plants in my garden - but never 'FOR SALE'!?!! I HAD to ask 'Why?' 'What for?' The Gardener/Vendor was more than happy to go into detail about how to prepare, saute' in a stir fry w/ terriyaki or make into a pesto sauce... Hmmmmm
So after work, off I went to our garden...
