I was finally able to do something I’ve been meaning to do all year which was go to downtown San Jose’s farm fresh fridays…. I bought some romaine, cherry tomatoes, peach, pomegranate, portabello mushrooms, and foccocia bread for $10… a steal! I was inspired since my boyfriend has fallen in love with mushrooms to make a portabello burger, so I grilled some with balsamic vinegar, dried basil and garlic.

Cherry tomatoes, romaine, kewpie mayo, a bit of mustard, tilamook cheddar helped accompany the dish!
The farmers market was fun because we biked there and were able to get a bunch of free samples. YUM :) My next mission is the Berryessa flea market and the japantown farmer’s market.

Lately I haven’t been cooking too much since my design classes have started kicking my ass. I recently tried to make savory oatmeal and I hated it, and a slew of other fails. But on a lighter note, a place called Psycho Donuts just opened up in downtown San Jose and Chris and I went on a little date to check it out… (Mmm Key Lime Pie Donut) I can’t wait to go back! I wouldn’t say they are amazing like a fresh out of the oven krispy kreme glazed, but the shear novelty of it and the fact that they are only $1-$3 each make it a fun little adventure.
