The Veggie Cart Cometh!

GUESS WHAT ALBANY JOHN FOUND YESTERDAY?! HA HA! The Veggie Mobile!
It’s like when you stop looking for something, it just falls into your lap. Wonderful! He only had a little bit of cash monies on him, but he grabbed a bag of spinach, carrots, 3 zucchini, 3 braeburn apples, a lime, and this lovely perfectly ripe melon. Mmmm. Honeydew melon.

He was also informed by one of the kind folx there (who also plays in Sgt Dunbar, so = super awesome) that lime juice squeezed on honeydew was delicious.

Dudes, it SO IS. The tartness of the juice really brought out the sweetness of the honeydew. I wolfed down half of melon when Albany John brought it out. After we’d been snacking on some earlier. He looked at me and said “Wow”, to which I replied “Why did you put this in front of me and not eat any?”. It was so fresh and tasty. Yum!

Fingers crossed I find them again on Saturday. Somewhere!

    I have no idea what the above commenter is attempting to say…

    That said, yeah, EJ is pretty cool. A friend from college, Lauren, is also a veggie mobile worker.

    I agree on the lime juice. I put lime juice on canteloupe too. Tasty!

  3. David – thank you? I’m not quite understanding what you wrote either, but I’ll consider it favorable. 🙂

    JMP – I love how ‘SmAlbany’ things are sometimes!

  6. phairhead – they stop in schdy thurs, fri and sat!

    grace – mmm, melons!

  7. Lime (and a sprinkle of salt) is amazing on super ripe mango as well! Had it that way from a booth at a flea market in Bklyn, never looked back…
