I had my own little earth day last week

I got all earth friendly last Saturday and took a trip to the Farmer's Market in Franklin.

I got some really pretty peonies. I just had to have them.

I got some local honey. I have a thing for honey these days. I probably need it to make me sweet. No one has ever mistaken me for a honey biscuit.

Sumer got some organic veggies. She smiles about veggies...I do not. I kept asking her what she was going to do with them. However, I did know that you need to place those asparagus sticks upright in a glass of water, in the fridge, until ready to use.

Hours later...on the exact same day, my parents came to town and we made a trip to a strawberry patch and picked some berries. Lately, whenever I eat grocery store berries, I itch. I'm not allergic to the berries just some toxic chemical that they spray on them. These berries are not certified organic but are not sprayed with any chemical. They have received in-ground fertilization. I'm really not sure who typed that last sentence...Look at me throwing around the term..."certified organic." No adverse reaction from these berries.
I think this picture needs to be on the cover of one of those cooking magazines.

We also took Wingtips & CraftiMama to eat at Marcy Jo's. Here is CraftiMama with Marcy Jo after she had just ordered the Elvis cake. CraftiMama loves all things Elvis, including this cake.

Marcy Jo's Mealhouse. Located on Hwy 431.
The burgers are awesome!

Did you know that a tsp. of locally grown honey a day can help you with allergies (to pollen).

(Bay has his own blog now and I am too lazy to change screen names because it deletes what all I just typed.)

Aren't those berries the best you've ever had? And you must be more specific about where on 431 that little quaint eatery is at. Looks scrumptious!

You may have to share those pics with SY, who needs a little inspiration to update her blog!!! ;)

What's all this about an Elvis cake? My mom is CRAZY about Elvis. I must get her a piece of this cake before she leaves. Where is this little eatery??

Now I'm homesick for TN :(

Sumer said...

I did enjoy my farm fresh veggies this week, you missed out! ;) And I concur that we need some more information about this restaurant!

My you lead an exciting life! I just bought some local honey too for the same reasons bayj (or the person pretending to be bayj) wrote. I didn't know that about asparagus. I will be sure to only order it in restaurants from now on.
