“To Market, to market…”

…but I ain’t buying any fat pig, that’s for sure! Several people of late have commented on my pictures of food or my blogging about food or my eating so much food.  As I was heading to the market, again, today, I thought I’d take a few pictures of what I think are the differences in my market here compared to my market in Grand Forks. If you have forgotten, I seem to head to the market about 3-4 times each week. Also, if you have forgotten, because I sure haven’t, I have to walk. Both ways. Oh, the trials I must face! :-/  I should be happy about that because it may be the main reason I have lost approximately eleven kilos since our arrival a little over 3 months ago.

I could have also taken a picture of the large number of open candy containers, but I thought someone would think I was a spy taking all these pictures, so I quit with the camera.

Oh, and if that wasn’t enough about food, I’ll add a photo of the apple pie I made for dessert last night with company and the coffee table for the coffee this morning with a couple of gals from church.

Yep, all we seem to do here is eat, eat, eat. So, of course, I seem to always have to go “to market, to market…” 😉
