 Where have we been this summer?


  1. I have been meaning to ask I see a head of cabbage for $3. what would that be in US Dollars? The veggies look so good at this market.

    1. 3 dollars Canadian would be $2;31 in US dollars. One Canadian dollar right now is only 77 cents US. We still have some very good fish veggies here for a while yet.

  2. I guess a bunch of us are getting down to last visits for this year. Looks like it was a fun day!

    1. Yes we are soon last visits with family for a while as well.
      It sure was a fun day.

  3. I enjoyed being mentioned in your blog George. Glad that you and Suzie had a good day!

    1. Glad to mention you Loree, thanks for the tip soup mixes, we had a sample and it was excellent. We had a real great day thanks.

  4. Glad you had a good last visit to the flea market. It was a beautiful day for it. I'm going to google the soup company, a couple of them sound very good.
    Spaghetti squash is the way to go rather than pasta, very few carbs for sure.

    1. It was a perfect day for the market and the Fall fair. The spaghettis squash is a very good alternative to pasta, we love it. The soups taste excellent and pretty well everything you need, just add a few extra ingredients of you like.

  5. Apples and pumpkins? I guess it's fall after all!! What a fun market to walk through.

    1. Yes it is fall with all these apples and pumpkins everywhere.
      We do love this market.

  6. The market still has some fine looking vegetables.

  7. I love that flea market! Everything sure looks Fallish so hard to believe already! We love spaghetti squash thanks to you George! Never had it until we saw your dishes. Now that's all we eat! Apples and the soup mix both look delicious !

    1. We always enjoy going to this market, lots of neat things to see and always something new. We do enjoy the spaghettis squash , glad you like it too. We eat more of it when they are reasonably priced. Love these apples and soup mixes.

  8. The fall fruits and squash certainly make your trip to the market an enjoyable outing. Fran likes to use those soup mixes, when we find them.

    1. Yes Jeff fall is in the air, can tell with the cooler temperatures and fall vegetables. There is some very tasty soup mixes out there to try. Nice that they have samples.

  9. You certainly crammed a lot into one day. Love those honey crisp apples.

    1. It was a busy day, just so happens everything happens here on the same day. Honey Crisp are the best !


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