$4.00 worth of slow food

All this for $4.00 and so much more. . .

The Farmers Market it San Jose, Costa Rica
is filled with not only fruita and vegetales
but inspirations from all around.
Just look at the mountains in the background
where coffee plantations grow the worlds
best coffee. yummmmmm

Now these beets that I bought are as big as cantelope in comparison to the ones that I buy in NC. which are the size of a golf ball and very expensive.

Cutting into these was so easy. I was expecting them to be hard as a rock but no.... soft and beautiful inside and I only cooked them for about 15 minutes and they were ready to eat. . . just like that.

So, last night's dinner consisted of fresh pineapple, cooked beets,
fresh broccoli with fresh red peppers, garlic and onion.
and fresh from the market strawberries.
A feast for the eyes, the body and the soul
