Salad Vegetables

In Los Angeles




This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

We’re finally in Los Angeles.  I’m staying at my sister’s house and we headed straight over to the farmer’s market this morning.

Eating in the car for the past 8 or 9 days has left me with no interest in food whatsoever.

I need a salad.

It’s going to help me blot out the memory of all those those nuggets, strips, bites, rings, fries, shakes, doughnuts, value meals, breakfast biscuits, snack wraps and random stuff in little boxes, bags, tubs and pouches.

It doesn’t matter what goes into this salad, it’s just salad for salad’s sake

and it’s going to renew my faith in food

bite by leafy bite…

    I know what you mean about “car food”. We’ve made some major moves with young children. Even they asked for “real” food after awhile.

    Good luck with settling in. We loved visiting L.A. when we lived in La Jolla.

    Best,
    Bonnie

    Ah, a California farmer’s market–heaven! You will be able to get lovely produce pretty much all year around! And that salad looks wonderful. Now I’m craving salad for breakfast. Was that feta in the salad?

    I’m glad to see that you have finally arrived. I’d be willing to bet that it will be a VERY long time before you crave fast and easy food again. That salad is beautiful with all the colors and I’m sure that it tasted like heaven to your deprived taste-buds!

    Praying that you’ll find your new home much more easily than expected. If nothing else, there is a positive side to the move in the amazing fresh produce that you will have at your fingertips!

    Glad to see you had a safe journey. There’s nothing like a Farmers’ Market IMO!
