québec pt. 1 : marché du vieux port

I had never been to Québec City before, and we had a really great time! Spent yesterday and this morning sorting through all the pictures we took - there are so many to go through but I thought I'd start by sharing one of my favorite parts of the city: the market. Every morning fresh produce is brought in from the Île d'Orléans, a small island nestled right in the St. Lawrence river about a fifteen minute drive from the city. I was surprised to see how affordable all the berries and vegetables are - I'm sure many of them are in season now, but it couldn't help make me wish that there was something more like this in Boston. I've definitely come away from the trip with a desire to eat better and cook more.

I think one of the tricky things about working from home is that it's hard to give yourself a break and let go - for instance, lunch for me usually consists of standing while making a PB&J sandwich for two minutes and going back to work - but after the trip I'm promising myself this is going to change - at least a fifteen minute lunch break where I actually sit down!
