We had such a nice, relaxing Saturday...after looking at another house (I'm trying not to keep count) we stopped out to The West Side Market for lunch. In case you aren't from Cleveland, The West Side Market is in its Centennial year—it's a historic indoor/outdoor market offering fresh foods from all types of cuisine. Some of the stands have been family owned and operated since the beginning of the Market! It's pretty incredible. We live so close, but don't go nearly enough.
The gyro stand line looked about 45 minutes long, so instead we stopped at a bunch of stands and bought everything that seemed delicious (bad idea when you're hungry).
We picked up a loaf of garlic rosemary bread, some smoked gouda and fontina, hand-rolled crackers, dill pickle slices (my weakness), an apple fritter, some canoli, and Jim got a few kinds of beef jerky.
I don't know how I mustered up the willpower to not snag one of these caramel or buckeye apples. DROOL.
We went for a long bike ride around the neighborhood (scoping out houses we'd seen online), and worked up enough of an appetite to visit Rozi's patio. Rozi's used to be just a wine house, but they put in a beautiful open-walled patio this year. Garage-style doors open up the whole patio to Detroit, and you can just sit and people watch and enjoy a good glass of wine (or beer). We got a plate of breads and spreads and it hit the spot. They will also pour you a drink while you browse the store—sounds like the kind of job I need!
We didn't do anything Mexican-related for Cinco de Mayo—did any of you celebrate?
