well it's saturday night. i'm finished with the crafters pop up market & now just have a sunday at the seaport to get through before my weekend starts :)
today went great. i've had a bit of practise being in a couple markets at once, so things go quite a bit smoother now. also, a big shout out to leslie (aka my voice doppelganger) for holding down the fort for me at the seaport!
it's nice to have a change of scenery every once in awhile though, and to get a bit more exposure on the dark side. here's my set up from the market at two if by sea today:
ckdu was on hand spinning fun tunes all day, there were loads of lovely crafters to chat with & lots and lots of delicious anchored coffee. the next crafters market is the first weekend in april & will be back at the olympic centre. for all of these markets i take my usual assortment of sweets, a small selection of frozen goodies & lots of salads to feed the hungry crafters.
i actually should have brought more salads with me. i sold out quite early but didn't sell out at the seaport. i have 3 of each left for tomorrow.
broccoli: bacon, almonds, sunflower seeds, cranberries, red pepper & red onion
quinoa: curried hummus dressing, peanuts, lime, cilantro, crunchy veggies.
vegan potato: green beans, celery, radishes, fennel, dill & dijon.
this week i also completely replenished my soup stocks. i made 5 new batches & the freezers are overflowing. there's curried butternut squash:
indian-spiced, creamy cauliflower:
white bean, lemon & kale:
and roasted red pepper, tomato, sweet potato & chipotle which i forgot to take a picture of.
there's a list on my freezer door now stating which ones are vegan, vegeterian, paleo & gluten free. there's pretty much a soup to suit every dietary restriction!
one last thing, passionfruits made their way back in to my kitchen this week.
i have a new item, lemon-passionfruit shortbread bars, just in time for valentine's day!
speaking of which, you have two days left to get your valentine's dinner delivery orders in. i need to do the food shopping, plan the delivery route & prep all the grub so they need to be in by monday night please & thank you.
and on that note, i'm going to sleep - yahoo!!! hope to see you all at the market tomorrow.
