One Cooks Hidden Obsession – Unveiled…

Well, Johnny is the best cook I know.  I am a simple food person, I could happily subside on baked chicken and white rice for the rest of my life – but not because I don’t LIKE good food, I just don’t have a lot of (ok, I don’t have ANY) food creativity.

So each morning, when Johnny sends me the “What should we have for dinner?”  email – I always provide some variation on chicken and white rice (either that or I say “Um, I don’t know, ham sandwiches?”).

Well, as his blogging grows, I felt that I should share with the world his one true love – Hot Box Pizza.  Sure, he loves to take simple pantry ingredients and mix it up into a fabulous concoction – but his heart belongs with Hot Box Pizza.  I believe his current HBP “poison” is the thin crust option topped with sausage, pepperoni, green peppers and a whole lotta other random stuff (ME? I would order extra cheese and call it a day).

To prove my point, I would like to provide photographic evidence.  With each “Big 10” order, they send drinks.  I just was grabbing a regular glass from the cabinet, and counted 20 Hot Box Pizza cups (this does not count what is in the dishwasher, his car, his office…).

Orange, green, purple, blue - we have cups in every color...

My favorite part? When his latest order arrived, he said: “Oh yellow cups, they have a new color for us to collect…”

A Visit to the Fishers Farm Market

I have high jacked my husbands blog for the day (that is what he gets for letting me set everything up, I know the username and password)!

But I have taken over the blog to chat about our visit to the Fishers Farmers Market this past Saturday.  Johnny and I have far different experiences at Farm Markets – he searches high and low for the best produce, squeezes tomatoes, asks the proper questions about blueberry season, looks for spots on apples, and stands in long lines for the sweetest, tastiest corn in history.  I watch Christopher dance to the live music and pet puppies, I take pictures of flowers and visit the guy selling chocolate (I also happened to find a lady selling cute baby girl headbands – I left her booth with two new things for Baby Girl Buckner).

As Johnny mentioned before, he was cooking a pre-Thanksgiving dinner for me (it turned out so delicious), and he had to find the proper ingredients for an optimum taste experience.  While he went on his search, I took photos:

Pretty pink flowers... I ended up buying the most gorgeous mums for $5!

Don't these colorful pumpkins just scream "FALL is here!"?

Sweet, crisp apples - I am actually eating one as I type...

Christopher's favorite thing about the farm market? PEACHES.

Peppers & onions & cucumbers - Oh my! I think a few of these found their way into the turkey dinner, it was goooood.

If you see this corn truck - hand over all of your money - you won't regret it!

Sadly, the Fishers Market only goes for one more week.  The good news?  You can visit the Carmel Market through Saturday, October 2nd or the Noblesville Market through Saturday, October 30!
