I went to the Farmer's Market at Laguna Hills Mall with Liz today after yoga. I haven't gotten to go in a while. While we were there, I looked for, but did not see Reb and Lou. I think Reb is out of town. Perhaps Lou is also.
Since we were hungry, we went for fresh tamales. They were absolutely delicious! I had a sweet corn tamale with green sauce. I know I could never turn one of these out myself (way too lazy and tired), so it seemed like a good excuse to try one. Plus, they were cheap and wonderfully fresh. Liz had a chicken with sauce. I don't recall what kind of sauce, but she gave me a taste, and it was good.
I picked up my usual fish (John Dory). The Black Cod looked fabulous, but at $20. per pound, a bit pricey for me. And some of those nice black Cherokee tomatoes that looked so appetizing in Lou's blog last week detailing her shopping foray to the same market. Basil to go with it was also handy. Tonight we'll have a nice dinner with the fish, tomato salad, and perhaps some asparagus I have in the fridge and need to eat.
