busy bee

26 05 2008

This weekend, my better half organized a working bee to put a new roof on our old shed. This is the type of thing he does to prove he’s the better half of this equation. I didn’t help with the roof at all. Yes, you sense some guilt in there, but I am just a WEE bit terrified of heights. I decided the least I could do was to make some awesome lunches for all the lovely boys helping my boy with the roof. First thing Saturday morning, I headed out to the Carp Farmer’s Market to load up on lunch treats.

To start, I picked up some divine sourdough bread from the Art-is-an Bakery booth. I’ve heard their bread described more than once as Crack Bread and I have to agree. It was their first week at the Carp Market, and I’m SO happy to see them there! My weekly trip to the market just got a whole lot yummier.

Right beside was the ever-so-lovely Jim from Back Forty Cheeses. Jim makes ewe milk cheeses by hand and they are WORTH their weight in gold. He’s very generous with his samples and, once you’ve tried them, you’ll want to take each one home with you – and probably Jim too!

So, add the bread and the cheese to some tasty local lettuce and a few more nibblies thrown in… by lunchtime, I had those worker bees eating out of my hand!

Update: This past Saturday was a sad one. I learned that Art-is-an will not be returning to the Carp Farmers’ Market. I heard whisperings about the politics behind the scenes being a little too much for them. I hate to think this is true. All I know is that I now have to make my way into the city to find their crack bread. But I will… I’m an addict.
