Farmer’s Market: Fall

I just had to share my haul from the farmer’s market today. It has been a little strange lately because of this crazy weather pattern we are having here in So-Cal. Literally, last week it was boiling and then in an instant it was cold and raining. I take that fact to be the reason why I am still picking up some delicious strawberries and my beautiful dark greens all at the same time.

These little gems are called “Wood Ears” and they really do look like ears…. and feel like them too. They are a type of mushroom/fungi and they just had the most amazing aroma so I had to pick some up. I am hoping to use them to revamp the classic Thanksgiving green bean casserole!
