S had a great time running around the Bicentennial Mall this morning. For those of you not in the know, which should be about 98% of you, the Nashville Farmer's Market sits just down the hill from the state capitol building. In 1996, the state built the Bicentennial Mall (aka Bicentennial State Park) to honor...you guessed it...the state's 200th birthday. The market sits right alongside the mall, which is great for giving you a place to walk around and enjoy the sunshine. TMI?
Either way, S and I played on the mall for awhile after procuring a few quarts of locally-grown berries and some bean plants. Then we had lunch from Jamaica Way, a little cafe at the market. Holy Moly. It was good. S and I had barbecued portobello mushrooms, sweet potatoes with pineapple, green beans, and a johnny cake. I have never liked mushrooms. Ever. I would eat these suckers every single day. I will now be trying all kinds of portobello mushroom dishes. Consider that a warning, M. For the record, the sweet potato/pineapple combination was a little too sweet. I wouldn't recommend that, though S would vehemently disagree as she gobbled them up.
I'm out. S should be waking up any minute.
