Today I paid my regular visit to the Laguna Hills Farmer's Market in the parking lot outside of Laguna Hills Mall. Despite the fact that I forgot to go to the bank to get some cash, I picked up some marinated fresh fish, which Jeremy and I immediately consumed when I got home, sauteed in the old iron skillet with hot fresh foccacio I baked and fresh torn chard salad with currants and toasted pine nuts in a vinagrette made of pomegranite vinegar and olive oil. Yum!
I wasn't that hungry, but Jeremy has to work this afternoon, and requested food. On Fridays he will usually eat what I make because he likes fresh fish, so I enjoy eating it with him.
Today was unusual because while I was scouting around the market, tasting the samples, as usual (though today the vendors were reserving their samples for serious customers, I noticed), I ran into Reb, also buying fresh fish for her family. We made the rounds together, although I was out of cash, since I was waiting for my friend Liz from yoga class to come.
Reb and I wondered if Lou were around, or if she had already long since visited and left earlier in the day. It's nice to see real people as well as visiting with them virtually, so today was an special pleasure!
