the weekend in photos: markets, morels & misty eyes

 Hello!  I hope y'all had a great weekend.  Mine was so great!  As I mentioned in the previous post, this weekend was the official open of the Leavenworth Farmer's Market BUT there were not many vendors so instead I kept on driving and went to the Kansas City Riverside City Market and LOVED IT!  Talk about a foodie heaven!  It was everything I expected and more.  From morels to fragrant spices and more, this is a place I will be coming back to.

It really was foodie heaven and I was in sensory overload.  I cannot wait until we are fully into summer because I just know the selection of produce and meats will be even better.  But I tell you, I was very surprised to see so many morels.  This is the first time that I have seen them in bulk.  And if you love mushrooms like I do this is very impressive.  I bought a little container and prepared them at home in the best way to showcase their favor: an omelette.  Yes, my friends, morels cooked in butter with green onions and drizzled over the fluffiest omelette (which I made from Araucana eggs) is the best way to savour and acquire the taste of morels.  Yes, I know they may look odd but they are quite delectable.


At the market I bought some fresh lilacs, and they are making my home smell beautifully.  Who needs scented candles when mother nature can create its own, right?


On Sunday I attended the wedding expo and it was so much fun!  I even got all girlied up and wore a dress which is so rare for me!  When I walked in I actually got all misty eye surrounded by all the bridal booths.  It finally hit me: Ahhhh, I'm getting married!!  So, details coming on a separate post.


And finally, no weekend would be complete without spending time with my snugglebug at the doggie park.  He is such a handsome boy!

And there you have it.  A weekend in photos! 
How was your weekend?


  1. you're making me really want to go to a farmers' market soon. I love finding fresh ingredients and fresh flowers always cheer up the house too!

    1. Living in Germany REALLY spoiled me when it comes to fresh flowers because they were cheap and gorgeous! So whenever I find them at the farmer's market (usually for very cheap), I go for it!
