SATURDAY CHORES + FARMERS MARKET
we went to the gilbert farmers market this morning. i love showing the kids what fruits and vegetables look like fresh out of the ground. carrots aren’t always perfectly straight and tomatoes aren’t always perfectly round. they had a lot of fun checking out all the booths.
i had no clue that artichokes bloomed into beautiful flowers. the color was so vibrant. the nice lady at the market said if you don’t pick the artichoke it will bloom into this amazing flower, once they bloom they’re no longer edible.
after chores were done we decided to get a pretzel at qt. i don’t typically eat gas station food. as in i never ever eat gas station food. except for pretzels at qt. did you even know they have pretzels? i didn’t until this past week when ivan got me one. they’re delicious and the machine you order them on is so fun for the kids. you can pick flavor, butter + salt, cinnamon sugar and a few others and then pick your dipping sauce. a little bribery helps make chores a little more enjoyable and qt pretzels make us all happy.
we ended the night with dinner at houstons. i can never decide between the french dip and the cheeseburger. i got the french dip. you can’t go wrong either way. the ice-cream sundae really made my night!
