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.
