Pinery Flea Market in Grand Bend, a nice email and almost thunderstorms today.

Where are we today ?

      Got a nice email from another of our Blog followers than bought himself a Weber Q, next size up from ours and so far loves it. And with more experience the more you use it the more you will love it. 
Thanks for the email Ron. And no I do not get a commission from Weber, I just love cooking on it and enjoy sharing my ideas.
" Hi George, Suzie.
Just to let you know, following your Blog and reading about the amazing Weber, I finally
got the Q 2200 about 2 weeks ago and it’s now my turn to rave about it. What a wonderful
BQ. I tell everyone about it and also tell them that it was your Blog that spiked my interest.
So now with the Weber and your great recipes that your willingly share with us, I’m looking
forward to even a better summer.
Thank you and yes you can tell everyone that I love my Weber. 
Have a great summer. 
Ron "

       Sunday morning and supposed to have thunderstorms all day, but that does not keep us away from the Pinery Fleamarket in Grand Bend. Headed out by 9 am with the umbrellas in hand. And we know if we take them it will not rain. An it did not, perfect!
      Lotsa stuff here and changes every week, need a seat? Check below.
        Vendors everywhere, as you may know we really enjoy this market, wander about in the woods, lots shade and always something new to see.
        Saw this T-shirt reminded us of our friend Rob. No matter what he eats he wants Ketchup!
50's style gas station/bar and entertainment starting at noon
      Now we took 16 books into John's to exchange, and he gave us 10 new one that we have not read (free). Found another vendor that had books we wanted and got 6 for $10.00 anothe good deal.
Suzie checking out John's book supply
excellent fresh cut fries( I am trying to cut back)
it's real hard!
then our friend with the extra hot pepperettes
I could not resist at least one bag
          Now back home in time for lunch, got done what we wanted and came out of there very satisfied. 16  books cost us $10.00, pepperettes $5.00, and two very tasty beefsteak tomatoes $5.00. looking forward to toasted tomato sandwiches tomorrow!
Library al most stocked up again
          Early afternoon our friends Bill and Pat packed up and headed back home (gotta go to work tomorrow). We do remember when we used to do that years ago. They stopped by to say see ya later. And their puppy Clemson in the back seat of their truck with his doggie seat belt on. Looks so relaxed and does not run around through truck any more.
see ya next time Clemson
       Next we just we enjoy a very hot afternoon in the shade with our books and a nice breeze. Chat with a few people here and there and then fire up our Weber Q. Grill a couple boneless pork chops and sweet peppers.
quick and easy on our Q
        Added that to a tasty salad with kale, lettuce, sunflower seeds, cucumbers, flax seed, grape tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, fresh cranberries, onion, black olives and balsamic vinegar with Extra Virgin Olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a fresh garlic dressing I made. Few fresh blueberries on the side as well.
sure hit the spot tonight
        Now supper done and walkabout and read a bit more until its to dark then inside for the night.
        That was a wonderful hot sunny day, pretty good when the weather guesser predicted 80% chance of thunderstorms all day. 
        Thanks again for stopping by hope you had a nice rainy day like we did!

  1. Do you both read the same books?

    Another question, where do you get your kale?

    1. We do read the same books, only she reads faster than me (4 to my 1 ), and some she says I would not like.
      Kale we can get at the markets or grocery stores around here no problem.

  2. That's funny....I was going to ask the same question about you both reading the same books....
    That sure is a nice farmers market!

    1. We do love this market , has to be our very favourite one, we have been coming here over 20 years.

  3. Looks like we read the same books

    1. The are all good mystery type, action filled books.

  4. 2 tomatoes for $5............. NO wonder I can't go to Canada......?

    1. They are expensive but were so tasty we could not refuse them a real treat for us.

  5. What are pepperettes? I have never heard of them.

    Wish we were at the flea market. Paul needs to replenish his supply of books...and fast.

    1. Pepperettes are a tiny dried/ cured sausage snack sticks with various spices. I like mine extra hot. some are ,mild, medium, honey garlic, can be made from beef, pork turkey, etc...
      Mostly available in Canada, that why I stock up when we head south.

      Its nice when we can find book exchanges at a good price and here is one of our favourites.
      You need to make a fun trip up here some weekend, but it is a rather long drive for you.
      We have friends from Alliance Ohio that actually do weekend trips in their car.

  6. Looks like they have a little of everything - I wish you were closer so I could give you the two or three boxes of paperbacks we have. Seems like you are going to have my kind of camping weather by midweek.

    1. Lots of variety at this market and great atmosphere, and mostly reasonably priced, thats why we love it.
      Maybe someday we meet up with you if you still have them.

  7. Another fun market for you. The one we did on Saturday had next to nothing. Didn't buy a thing and walked out with money still in our pockets. I'd sure like to find a good one. Yours seem to be everywhere you go.

    1. WE have found quite a few nice markets and really enjoy them.
      Sometimes we spend no money if there is nothing we want.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
