The One With All The Pictures

July 14, 2008

After a nice 40 minute cardio workout (elliptical and treadmill- I plan on doing ab work tonight to get some strength in, I promise) I came home for some lunch. I made a delicious grilled ciabatta bread sandwich using a generous amount of turkey, provolone cheese, and spicy eggplant marinated in olive oil. Amazing. I had some frozen grapes on the side.

Coffee with a little FWDGF 🙂

Then began the adventuring. I took the metro (subway) to Marche Jean-Talon, a massive outdoor market that sells a mind-boggling array of fresh produce, cheeses, meats, fish, breads, and just about anything else you can imagine. They set out samples and I did my fair share of tasting, but all of it was fruits and veggies except for a tiny square of homemade fudge.

This store here was grilling small pieces of duck, bison, and merguez sausages- they all smelled amazing.

More meats next to an olive vendor.

Look at how huge this place is!!!

It was tough choosing what to have for dinner, everything looked and smelled so tantalizing. I narrowed it down to a bison burger or waffles, and wound up going with my sweet tooth and having breakfast for dinner. I had creamy melty nutella and banana sliced over light, fluffy, and slightly crispy waffles. Heaven. I left about 3-4 bites but thoroughly enjoyed the portion that I did eat.

I already have a full fridge at home and had to restrain myself at the market. I came home with the best cherry tomatoes I have ever tasted, perfect nectarines, a plum, strawberries, and a persimmion. I sampled all of these before buying them and I am now soooo excited to eat them all 🙂

It’s raining now and kind of gross out so I think I’m going to stay inside and read for a bit or just relax. Have a good night!
