I had used my mom's car for the airport run, so I dropped it back at my parents' house. Normally I would have just walked down to the Gold Line and taken that back to South Pasadena, but then I would have missed basketball. So I arranged for my friend Carla, who was on vacation, to give me a ride in the afternoon. This meant I had several hours to watch basketball on my parents' 61" TV and eat food out of their fridge. This was just fine by me.
For lunch I made myself a quesadilla with Taco Lita hot sauce (there is always some in my parent's fridge), gouda cheese, cheddar, and cilantro. I baked it in the oven - I didn't even want to go outside and use the grill, that's how much I was enjoying the games - for about ten minutes. It was very tasty. I topped the wedges with some sour cream, cilantro, and a little more hot sauce. This didn't really add anything to the taste, but it sure made the pictures pretty. I am pretentious like that.
Elizabeth got home an hour early Thursday evening, so we went to the South Pas farmers market. It was as crowded as I have seen it all year, but that's not surprising - with the time change there is another hour of light for the market, and the produce keeps getting better each week as we approach spring. Elizabeth loves strawberries. I do not. But she is worth spending three dollars on, so I bought her some. I was able to get the very last of the spicy greens, which I plan to use for a salad soon. I bought some cotton candy for Elizabeth because that is just about her favorite thing in the world.
I inquired about a bread pocket at a stand and was told it is filled with spinach and feta cheese. That sounded interesting so I got one. Months ago I got a slice of cake the color of a rainbow and it was delicious, but I never saw it again. Until this time. There was one left so I bought it. I ate it for dinner that night and it was again delicious.
The last thing we bought were some flowers before exiting the market.
