Beach Shopping

I FINALLY managed a beach weekend (the first, but most likely my last). Summer's almost over, people! While out prepping for a BBQ with my fabulous weekend hostess, I took a few snaps (with my iPHONE!) of some of the amazing items available at the Mecox Dairy market stand. We bought a bunch of berries for a dessert (more on that later in the week) as well as some gorgeous dahlias for the dining table. I wish that I had more time to sample and cook with...everything (particularly the local cheese)! Or, I wish that I at least had more room in my weekend bag to take everything home with me. fellow train travelers may not have taken kindly to me carrying on stinky cheese in my duffle. But then again, that Montauk/Jamaica train is an astonishing 40 degrees. (Practically! What's up with that?!) I'm still not defrosted. Maybe it's not such a bad idea...

Gorgeous Squash Blossoms. I have yet to ever cook with them, but, one day, my friend. One day.

Vibrant Orange Cherry Tomatoes. Clearly blightless.

Mr. Turkey. I am concerned for your whereabouts on November 27.

Intensely Magenta Dahlias. $12.50 a bunch!

Mini Summer Squash with Blossoms. And random insect.

Mature Heirloom Tomatoes. Blight be damned!

I thought you were going away. I had something written down but it looked like I was drunk bb'ing. Looks fabulous. Hope you had a great trip.
