I adore poppies.  When I was pregnant with the Little Miss I wanted to call her Poppy, but alas our surname also starts with a P so it was a bit Peter Piper-ish, if you know what I mean.  

A new IGA supermarket opened up across the road from work, which is also close to my home.  My friend calls it the "Magic IGA" - because it is open from 6 am to midnight.  I think it is magic as it is a market style IGA, opened in an old bowling alley.  It has a flower stall with the most delightful blooms.  This is where I found my poppies last week.

The Magic IGA also has the largest gluten free and organic section I have ever seen.  As one trying to eat more natural and less processed foods, I am loving the availability of fresh produce and brands the larger supermarkets do not stock.  Speaking of natural, I am cooking many recipes from 101 Cookbooks.  This is worth a look if you are looking to renovate your diet and cooking regime.  I am thinking of adding one of her cook books to my own sizable collection.
