Ruby Tuesday at the Farmer's Market

Hello and happy Ruby Tuesday to you!

Here are some touches of red that I found either at the Farmer's Market this weekend or in the case of the tamales and sauce, after purchasing at the Farmer's Market.

Nothing like a tamale breakfast - yum!! This sauce is very red, redder than in the shot, and hot, but still flavorful. I wish I knew how they made it. I always grab an extra when I get tamales. These are the vegetarian - cheese and green chilis. Here is some red lettuce - a purpley red this time. I got a bag of fancy mixed greens for $1. It was huge - lots of peppery tasting greens.
I love pistachios. This time it's not the food, but the tablecloth that's red. I get to do a pistachio review around Super Bowl time. I can't wait. The pistachio people are sponsoring a giveaway at my blog Veggie Chic. If you'd to visit, you can comment for the chance to win one of 10 - 5lb boxes of Cutie Mandarin Oranges. Yum.

Lastly, it was 72 F here today! I wore shorts and flip flops to work. I planted some pansies and spent some time outside with Max. It was a lovely afternoon.

I can't imagine eating hot peppers for breakfast! But pistachios, mandarins and salad I'll eat most anytime. ;-)

It was warm again today. I wore a skirt and flip flops and I know that I'm a mean girl for bragging about it. ;D

Pistachios......yum. You know I'm supposed to get some for a product review soon. My daughter is really looking forward it.

The green peppers are very mild. Just warm.
