Farmer's Market Bounty

Today was a glorious day. We slept in 'til double digits, and when we finally pulled ourselves out of bed, it was to leisurely bike around town in 70F weather, enjoying the sunshine while looking at houses we either can't afford or don't want to buy because we like our current house better. Finally, we ended up at the local farmer's market, just before closing, where we loaded up on the ingredients to round out the collection for the week that will be making up our dinners:

-1 small tub of white truffle butter from the French foods tent
-1 medium tub of cilantro pesto from the Indian spreads tent
-1 sourdough batard from Acme Bread Company
-3 leeks
-1 bunch parsley
-2 artichokes
-2 carrots
-1/2 lb. Queso Bravo
-1/2 lb. tree oyster mushrooms

Tentatively on deck for this week's dinners:
-Sopa de ajo con pan y huevos;
-boiled artichokes with bread and cheese;
-tacos de hongos;
-and some other random combination of deliciousness composed of some of today's acquisitions plus whatever's in the kitchen, likely a vegetable soup of some sort. Should be a great week, foodwise.
