Strawberries, Etc.

We went to the Farmer's Market today. I bought myself 4 quarts of strawberries from the 'seconds' table. Oh, how I am a sucker for that stuff. I am very good at convincing myself that yes, it would be a fabulous idea to buy two cases of tomatoes for $12 even though I know I have to do something with them ASAP. Guess what I did this afternoon? I made Strawberry Rhubarb jam, Berry Rhubarb Salsa, Strawberry Vanilla Bean Syrup, and this sketchy Brown Sugar Banana Butter that seemed like a good idea at the time. Another one of those 'I just want to try it' recipes. I think it will end up sweetening bowls of oatmeal this winter. After that, we made homemade ice cream, because guess what folks?! My excitement for the week was finding a Cuisinart ice cream maker at the thrift store for $10! Yippee!

In other news, I am still eating at least one microscopic radish a day. Tyler wipes them off on his shirt and comes to me saying "I brought you a treat!" and watches me eat it. Do you think he himself would consider a radish a 'treat'? Probably not.
