I am grateful for packages!

My sister and brother-in-law recently came back from a trip to Italy (jealous).  They had a marvelous time.  They were so thoughtful to send me a package with some noodles, a wooden spoon, and some seasonings all the way from Italy.  They tricked me and bought the chocolate at World Market.  I thought I was eating real Italian chocolate.  It was delicious though.  They also created a pasta recipe and designed the recipe card themselves.  What else would you expect from a couple of talented graphic designers?

Hello November.

I love the month of November.  It is a month to remember our blessings and all that we are grateful for.  Today I am thankful for Soulard Farmer's Market!  My friend just introduced me to this place and it is awesome!  Going grocery shopping at a farmer's market with your girl friends is totally more exciting than going grocery shopping at Wal Mart at 7 in the morning by yourself (yes, I do that).  
Here's all the fruit and veggies I purchased and I got it all for a screaming good deal.  I'm definitely shopping here from now on.
Here's Britt and Liz with their gourds and the cute old man that was working at one of the vegetable stands.  He's been working at this farmer's market for 45 years!
(Picture on the left):  We went to a spice store that had every type of spice you could possibly think of...and more!  They had their own blends of seasonings that we got to sample and it was amazing!  I bought some of their Chipotle Orange seasoning that I'm excited to use on some salmon later this week!  It has a smokey, tangy kick to it that I think will be delicious.
