The kiddos are crazy about stone fruit: apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, pluots, etc. Before I set out for the farmers market on Saturday mornings, I always ask if they have any requests. Iain usually asks for apricots or “other stone fruit.” I’ve been explaining to him for the past two months that stone fruit are not in season and that we probably won’t see any until June. And, then, it happened. Last Saturday: apricots, nectarines and peaches arrived at the farmers market. Oh praise the generous stone fruit gods! I brought home a big bag of fruit that was devoured in two days. Luckily, apricots have also appeared in grocery stores, so I was able to replenish our supply with a quick trip to Food for Less. I just love apricots—what a fantastic snack food. There are also some lovely veggies and a pork and pinto bean quesadilla in this lunch, but the apricots are the star of the show.
