This week, I would like to offer a moment of appreciation for the beautiful ingredients we have enjoyed this past summer.  Can you think of a favorite farmers market find that made you smile with delight?  Maybe something from your own garden, or an offering from a generous neighbor?  Aren't we lucky to find fresh organic ingredients wherever we can find them?  There is nothing better.  These photos represent just a few of my favorites.  If you'd like to play some soaring, dramatic movie music as you peruse these, I wouldn't blame you.

Would you like to have a beautiful ingredient on your kitchen wall?  I'm thinking of offering prints!  If you could have any of these images as a wall print, which one would it be?  If there's enough interest, I will make this happen!  email:  kari@beautifulingredient.com
