Farmers Market Brings us Fruit Preserves!

Our latest find at the Union Square Farmers Market was fruit preserve from Phillips Farms!

We walked by a stand covered with all kinds of preserves (with sugar) and spreads (without sugar... boring).  There were at least 10 different kinds available for sampling, and we sampled them all.  I wanted raspberry preserve; Husband's pick was strawberry. It was the end of  the day, and  the seller was packing away the goodies.  Nevertheless, we negotiated (amongst ourselves) for a while and both won.

We are now proud owners of strawberry and black raspberry preserve.  Both are delicious! Don't you just love  those little jars? How cute would they look filled with fresh flowers?

Mothers Sets (necklaces and earrings [not pictured]) - White round pearls, sterling silver chain and accents

Flower Girl Bracelet :) - Swarovski crystal elements, white round pearls, sterling silver accents

I can't wait to see the girls, moms and flower girl wearing these next weekend!

Treats What?!

I just discovered the eighth World Wonder: Treats Truck!!!

Sugar (the truck) drives around NYC selling homemade treats all day long. What can be better?!

We got a peanut butter sandwich (with chocolate filling), a caramel cream sandwich, a raspberry brownie, a pecan butterscotch bar, and a chocolate chipper. Amazing! Sadly they were gone too fast - too fast to take pictures! Check out the full menu here!
