Food glorious food

I woke up early this morning and headed downtown to the Farmers' Market. It is still early in the season so the market isn't quite to capacity, but it is still pretty busy. There were a lot of vendors selling plants and flowers which smelled amazing. I picked up a pint of beautiful strawberries to make a strawberry rhubarb pie, but since I ate half of them on my walk home there will be no pie.

The farmer’s' market is right around the corner from the public library so I stopped in to check out the Friends of the Library Book Cellar. As luck would have it, this is the weekend of their big book sale and all of the books were half price today. Paperbacks were two for a quarter so I stocked up.

I found these fabulous vintage titles to add to my collection. There were a few more that I had to leave behind because they would be too difficult to veganise. I also found the vegan guide to NYC from last year, a copy of Hoyle'’s rules of games, and Heloise from A to Z. My total spending for this morning out was under $5; an accomplishment in and of itself.
