This little missionary stayed home.
This little missionary had a mango, (cause I didn't have any "roast beef" on hands... Roast beef is REALLY tough here, so I don't buy it much =)
This little missionary had NONE!
and This little missionary cried WEE WEE WEE all the way home! =)
Thought that you'd like to go along with me to the Fruit and Vegetable, and Meat and Egg market! It opens early every Saturday morning right down from our house. WE ARE VERY HAPPY THAT IT IS THERE!! Do you have your pesos and your market cart ready? And you might want a TOUGH stomach for the first booth that we come to, is where they have just BUTCHERED a cow...and they have EVERY PART of the cow hanging around (And the bloody head laying on the ground) and they sell most of the meat, liver, stomach, guts, foot, etc., for people buy LOTS of that kind of meat around here. UGH!!
Colombia is blessed with many yummy fruits and veggies...although we don't have some here that we are use to, and miss...we are blessed to have Blackberries (THAT ARE VERY TART!!!), bananas, pineapple, green beans, tomatoes, limes, onions, carrots, small potatoes, iceburg lettuce and spinach, platano, watermelon, canteloupe, apples, grapes (WITH SEEDS), mango, maracuya, grananillo (Passion fruit), cucumbers, kiwi, yummy strawberries, nearly year around, peaches, pears, plums, and more.
~This is my favorite booth to come to. This lady and the one above, call their customers names like "My life, my love, my queen, my king, my all, my heart,"...etc. Hilarious! =) They must be Southern bells in Colombian.~
I miss not have yummy raspberries, and blueberries, and a few other things, but we do COUNT our blessings for all the yummy, FRESH things that we have! =) (I might add that I HATE going to this market...BECAUSE with us being fair Gringos and with my 3 blue eyed kids...the whole market stops what they are doing to STARE at us when we walk up. UGH! There's times that I leave the kids with Phillip, just so I won't be stared at quite soooo much. THEN, THEY ALL ASK WHERE MY CHILDREN ARE!! =)
Phillip just posted a new post on his blog about "The Adventures of Sir Bernard"...check it out.
