Portland Farmer's Market at PSU

It's been a few weeks since my last visit to the Farmer's Market but I managed to go this weekend and was so glad I did! There were eggplants galore so I had to pick up a few Japanese eggplants - my plan for these is a Chinese dish my mom makes, that was one of my favorites growing up. I've finally gotten a little tired of tomato on toast so these will go in my hotpot or into tomato egg (another beloved childhood dish).

Beets: $3
Strawberries: $3
Eggs: $6
Fuji apples + Pears (forgot the name of this kind): $3.95
Japanese eggplants: $3
Tomatoes: ~$3? (forgot!)

Total: ~$22

Last night I went to a friend's house for teppannyaki and it sparked a desire for hot pot (especially with the rainy chilly weather we're suddenly having). So tonight I assembled my ingredients and mixed up the sauce. Unfortunately Whole Foods didn't have any napa cabbage and I didn't feel like stomping over to Safeway so I'm eating it without; it doesn't feel like hotpot without napa though, so I'll be getting some tomorrow after BM class. All in all, a lovely evening at home!
