[almost] midnight snack

**blueberry cornmeal muffins**

1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 1/2 cups flour [i did about 1 cup whole wheat pastry, 1/2 cup all purpose]
dash o' salt
1/2 cup honey [the recipe really calls for 3/4 cup but i was feelin' more on the mild side]
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup apple cider
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup blueberries

preheat oven to 375. stir together cornmeal, flour, salt and baking soda. add the oil, milk, juice, honey, vinegar, and berries. mix gently until just mixed. spoon into greased muffin tins and bake until a toothpick comes out clean...abut 30-ish minutes. makes 12 muffins. adapted from "how it all vegan!"

i just ate two.

today mandy and i ventured down to montpelier for a little change of coop scene and to visit the farmer's market where we had all-local pizza courtesy of nofa-vt. back ib burlington, we picked blueberries at adam's berry farm with greggae. i didn't have a camera for any of this. lame. oh yeah and my dinner was awesome: thinly sliced red potatoes, corn off the cob, garlic, kale, and basil--all mixed up together. the tates, corn, and basil were all leftovers from last night's grill-on. i sauteed all these guys in butter of course and added some salt and pepper. i took a photo of this but can't find ye olde camera cord. honestly, i didn't look very hard.

eureka! at the burlington farmer's market i bought 3 melons--yellow and pink watermelon and the cutest l'il muskmelon i've ever laid eyes on. at the montpelier farmer's market i got petite zukes with their lovely blossoms still intact. they're quite elegant actually. like tiny fancy ladies.
