Pike's Place

I forgot about 3 more great things about my trip to Seattle:
1.) Breakie of groats with honey, almonds and half and half at The Crumpet Shop. yummmm
2.) Pike's Market where I scored dahlia's, parsnips, escarole, cippolini's, leeks, a gorgeous bulb of fennel, tomatoes (green, red and yellow cherry), rutabaga, bosc pears, and squashes (delicata, acorn and ambercup). I got all at Frank's produce at the market.
3.) New friend whom I met after Daniel's show that works at Franks. She told me about The Crumpet Shop and helped me pick my produce. She was beautiful, outgoing and extremely personable.

I can't wait to cook with all my fresh goodies. I'm thinking an escarole soup, root vegetable pot pie, homemade goat's milk ricotta and squash bake....what else?

This is one of those things that makes life easy to enjoy for me.

Hun - you don't need an apostrophe to pluralize squash.
