Project 333 Update and End

I managed to last almost 2 months before giving up on this project.  It's actually not a complete fail because most of the things I'm wearing are still from my original list but I'm starting to sneak in some non-list items because I'm bored.  Since I don't own a lot of clothes (I think), minimizing my choices wasn't really revelatory, but it did lead to a few new outfit combinations from necessity.  I don't think I'll be doing this again, but I'm glad I tried it out.  I think I see some wardrobe holes and it will be fun searching for items to fill them.

PSU Farmers Market or I Love Summer

It's been a long time since I did a farmer's market post, not because I wasn't going but because I've been too lazy to assemble my produce together after getting home.  Usually I go to market and then go from there straight to lab and then a few hours later I come home.  By then I'm anxious to get things washed and refrigerated, etc.  Today though, I stopped off at home first for lunch before setting forth again.  As you can see, I've been going to town on tomatoes and berries because they're so incredible this summer.  I also bought some Queen Anne cherries, but forgot to include.  Unfortunately, I don't remember the individual cost but I know the total was somewhere around $28.

I decided to post a picture of one of my favorite things to eat in the summer.  Tomato and garlic bruschettas. With summer tomatoes being what they are, all they need is a bit of crushed garlic, olive oil and sea salt to make them shine.  Put atop toast and you have a lovely meal.
