After 32 long years at the salt mine, I hung up my hard hat and began a life of leisurely living. It was time to sit back and relax. That is until yesterday. Yesterday, I started a new job. This job was offered to me and it just seemed like a good fit to my new lifestyle. It will involve a commitment of one day a month. I will sit around a lot and be out doors. A lot of produce will be involved. I will be the Manager one Friday of the month at the Richmond Farmers Market. Yesterday was my training day and it was fun.
Once the booths are situated and all the farmers are settled in, it will be my duty to gather the weekly prize produce basket. What a hoot it is going booth to booth and just plucking my whims and fancy of a selection. Some lucky winner will receive this cornucopia of fresh produce. Then I get to sit around and soak in the smells, flavors and character of the market.
I would like to share some of my experiences at my new job. In the future we may showcase some of the farmers. What do they grow? When? Where? How?, and possibly some recipes. This will be a job that I actually will look forward to going to. Stay tuned for this new chapter in the life of a Mad Meat Genius.
