I was at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market yesterday getting my fix of my favorite salsa from Nightshade Army Industries. I bought four jars, 3 red 1 green and Stefanie threw in a bag of ground cherry tomatoes.
The have a paper like husk wrapper like tomatillos, but are sweeter and are better raw.
They are sweet and fun to eat because of the wrappers, which makes them a fun party food.
Some say they have an almost tomato cross with a mango flavor. I think they have more of a sweet tomato with an sun dried tomato flavor.
They are my new thing. I try to try new vegetables each year. Last year was amaranth stem.

Slow Roasted Pork for the Bhami Sandwiches
Bona Sera, Ypsilanti’s newest restaurant, is my favorite place to eat in the Ann Arbor area. It is a fun laid back atmosphere decorated with Elvis Lamps, Star Trek Clocks and fun dressed mannequins in the window.
They serve a mix of dishes from a selection of Bhami Sandwiches, to a Thai version of shrimp and grits both house favorites. The prices for most dishes range in the $7-8 dollar range.
They also offer a few special like their surfy tuffy, which is a steak and scallop salad for $18.
Check out their full menu here.
Bona Sera is like one of those great out of the way secret places that you hope/pray you will find while traveling through Europe. You know the place. It is the one with the great food, not fancy, good prices, that you tell stories about when you return home.
I can’t say enough about this place. You have to go and try it if you have not been and tell your friends.

Pad Thai from the Lunchroom @ Mark’s Carts Ann Arbor
Still on my Vegan kick. I had lunch sampler from the The Lunchroom and at San Street at Ann Arbor food carts, Mark’s Carts. The Lunchroom has a three item sampler for $8 and a bunch of great vegan cookies. I also had a mushroom bun from San Street, which also has a tofu bun for vegan options. Emily and I split up the meal for a nice variety (not show below).
Make sure you stake a claim on The Lunchroom cookies. Emily took a bite and would not give it back.

This is my second time going to Sava in Ann Arbor. They have a mixed menu of pub food, standards like steak and fish, pasta and Italian, and Mexican.
That seems all over the map, but everything I have had there has been good.

The is something alien about Jello. If I was on a spaceship, the first thing I would expect to see is some form of Jello Food.
