Color in Threads and Food


Aren't my new fibers pretty? 
From left to right:  A couple of Cottage Colors, then several Thread-gatherer Silk 'n Colors, and finally a couple of Gloriana Silks.  
I so get off on color - I think I could find my Nirvana by just staring at that photograph for hours upon end...

As for the outdoor world...Jami at An Oregon Cottage suggested posting a seasonal recipe.  I don't have a recipe per say, but the last photograph surely will provide inspiration! 

Our local Farmers' Market started up in a small way this past Saturday.

There were about a dozen stands with leeks, and kale, arugula, and mizuna...

...and lettuce, tatsoi, spinach, and radishes.

A couple of bakeries, and Field to Table my favorite seasonal organic restaurant. 

I had the most scrumptious Pork Belly & Egg Sandwich with mozzarella, and sweet & spicy relish. All the products are local - the pork, egg, cheese, the bun and the relish - so I think this is a most seasonal recipe! It was also the messiest thing going, but oh, so good!
It's good to have the market back again for another season.

Love the threads - the colors are gorgeous. That sanwich looks delicious although I'll bet my cardiologist would have a fit about it! Yummmmm!

The colors of the embroidery floss are so beautiful in the photograph. And you have a farmers' market starting, and look at that gorgeous sandwich--you are livin' the lush life!

I'm a little jealous - we are still months away from a Farmer's Market! That sandwich looks wonderful!
