Preparing for the Feast

Yesterday, we went to the Santa Monica farmer's market to pick up some fruits and veggies for our Friday night cooking extravaganza.  Our chef friend is in town from the Bay Area and is kind enough to share some of her secrets and help us prepare a fabulous meal.  We bought the most food we've bought in awhile from the Farmer's market, including: mushrooms, little gem lettuce, peppers, pluots, cantaloupe, heirloom cherry tomatoes, salad greens, tarragon, parsley, basil, frisee, chives, red flame grapes and much more that I'm forgetting now.  She was pretty impressed by the variety and size of our farmer's market, I guess we're pretty lucky! Market is pretty much the same as its been for the last few weeks, with more and more peppers, grapes and eggplants, but slightly less heirloom tomatoes.
These signs and descriptions are helpful! I grilled a couple different varieties last week and they definitely cooked / tasted differently
