We got to enjoy a very nice field trip today to the Pike Place Market. It was a really lovely day (weather wise) and just several hundred of our nearest and dearest friends also decided that this was a great day to visit the Market. Oh my gracious - was it ever crowded. Lines and lines and lines. There were at least 20+ people outside Starbucks, plus those inside, so Karin Boonstra - our houseguest from Groningen, decided not to wait. But she got to try cheese curds at Beecher's, fresh white peach from a fruit stand and a lavender shortbread cookie. We visited our favorite olive oil and flavored balsamic vinegar store - lemon olive oil, rosemary olive oil and a new taste treat: Blenhem Apricot Balsamic Vinegar.
And when we got home, I baked a blueberry cake, a la Nancy. Yummy!
