our adventurous weekend last week ended with a trip to the farmer’s market. when i first moved to SLC i went almost every saturday because i was so enchanted by it, but last summer i never went – not even once! wedding planning and being engaged got the best of my time, but this past weekend we finally got to hit it up once more.

farmersmarket

we headed over around 9:30 am, before the crowds hit, and had theeeeee best eggs benedict of our lives!!! it was from the frida bistro food truck and had us talking about it for days afterward. let me just add that it had verde hollandaise sauce and smoked salmon on super tasty, grainy bread. so worth the trip alone.

we also bought some super cheap cherries, tomatoes and giant summer squash.

cooking with fresh produce is always more fun.

Davido and I went to Avenues Bistro on Third for breakfast this morning, because David is on spring break and doesn’t have to leave early in the morn for class, and because I have a wholehearted love of breakfasting and brunching. It’s way cooler than going out to dinner. Cause it’s morning! Most people are rushing off to work or grumbling about not wanting to roll out of bed.

So when you’re spending the wee hours of the morning out at a cutesy restaurant, well that’s somethin special.

breakfast 1

Sooo, we love our neighborhood and are trying to experience all it has to offer. The Avenues Bistro on Third is just up the street and always looks quaint and cute, so we decided to check it out.

It’s all that local/organic stuff and it was, well, it was just all right, I ain’t gon lie. Not great. Tasted like homemade. Only my homemade might be even better. Ha.

I got the frittata with tomatoes, cojita cheese and spinach. David got the huevos rancheros. But they were both just aiight. (And they played loud 80s music that didn’t really fit the setting.)

breakfast 2

Doesn’t mean it wasn’t a magical morn with my main man, though. OH and props to them for having a really cool salt tray (in photo above). Sea salt, pink Himalayan salt and smoked hickory salt! Cool.
