Summer is leaving

The kid and I spent the morning at the Westown Farmer's Market. This is the last Wednesday we can do it this year; beginning next week he will be in more regular day care as I return to teaching. Today felt valedictory.

You know summer is ending when these squash appear. They look tasty but I'm not eating any until it feels like fall.

C. Adam's Bakery sells a variety of treats that fall somewhere between a meal and a snack: From the front, Italian pesto and sundried tomato cheese buns made of focaccia, Pepperjack cheese buns and carmelized onion, beer, and cheddar cheese buns both made with brioche, and Cinnamon apple buns and pecan pie buns made with puff pastry.

The kid and I shared a carmelized onion, beer, and cheddar cheese bun (I couldn't wait to photograph it before taking a bite). It didn't taste very beery but it was delectable. He liked the onions. This is a very Milwaukee pastry.

And we took home sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, yogurt and a small chicken.
