I don’t know about you, but we learned how to ride the bus.

The Bus Stop

Crazy, no? We’ve only lived here for nearly two years now.

Did you know that Google Maps makes it EXTREMELY easy to figure out how to get from Point A to Point B on the bus?

Yet another thing I learned today!

With an afternoon class on the schedule for the girls, we decided to try the bus and let Zak take the car to work.

The Plan:

The girls and I hiked, biked and triked ourselves a couple of blocks to our local farmers market this afternoon.

Opening Day

We enjoyed the sites.

Sea of Strawberries

The sounds.

Local Asparagus

(Asparagus speaks to me.)

The signs.

Eat Your Vegetables New Sign

The realization that tonight’s dinner plans were about to be revamped.

Local Eggs

Brussels sprouts can wait until tomorrow.

Dinner Ingredients

Asparagus Frittata

  • A couple tablespoons of olive oil
  • Asparagus and other veggies of choice
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of milk or half and half (optional, but does make the eggs puff up nicely!)
