Saturday Farmer's Market.

Today Barbie found another opportunity to go shopping. Barbie loves to shop.
Ken had called and said he was considering putting some steaks on the barbecue... but Barbie had other plans.

Instead of grilling dead animal, Barbie dragged him off to go vegetable shopping at the local Farmer's Market.

There were so many beautiful flowers, plants, fruits and vegetables at the market this week!

Barbie found some HUGE raspberries.

Then, she saw the apricots.

Ken was not helpful. He remarked that they looked rather like little orange butts... which totally ruined any interest Barbie might have had in apricots.

Then he started power lifting the cherries.

"Oh grow UP, would you Ken?"

Barbie chose the yellow and red Rainiers, a Washington variety.

Barbie liked the Rainiers because they have shades of magenta in them, and magenta is her favorite color... but also because she always tries to buy local whenever possible.

Ken pointed out that the cherries were as big as Barbie's head.

Barbie told Ken he was exaggerating.

They also found some nice, new potatoes.
Being a meat and potatoes kinda guy, Ken was very excited about the potatoes and bought two!

Fortunately Barbie is pretty intelligent about what she eats, and thinks freaking out about carbs is a ridicules notion; she can think of all sorts of ways to use the potatoes and hopefully distract Ken from his silly BBQ thoughts!

Love the blog! You have a great sense of humor. Not to egg Ken on, but I think I ought to point out that garbanzo beans look baby butts too.
