C and I took an adventure a couple weekends ago, and went zip lining in Athens, Texas. It's around 2 1/2 hours east of downtown Dallas, and very country. I loved it, reminded me of being back home in the UP. I'll share the zip lining pictures I have soon, but one of the best parts of the trip was on the way home when we stopped at a fresh fruit and veggie stand on the side of the road. They had a good variety for just being outside some one's house, so we dug in!
I didn't buy one of the watermelons, so I can't tell you if they were good or not (however, the peaches were amazing.) I thought they looked really beautiful though, and the sign saying please put your money in the honor box made me smile. Love the small town trust :)
Basket of peppers, and some kind of squash. Although not really sure what kind of squash. Anyone know?
The fresh tomatoes were so great! I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to do with them, but got an idea from a fellow twitter friend to make fresh tomato sauce, and the tomatoes were perfect for it. I'll post about that tomorrow!
I'm always excited to find fresh veggies and fruit, I think it tastes so much better than normal store bought. There are a couple Farmer's Markets around the Dallas area that I hope to be hitting up soon, anyone has any suggestions let me know!
Happy Wednesday, see you back here tomorrow :)
