Eyes bigger than my backpack

I have got to start bringing the panniers to work on Fridays so I can get my farmers' market purchases home more easily. I keep heading out the door in the morning thinking, "Oh, I don't need the panniers today — I'm just getting some dates and some salad mix."

Which of course turns into four pounds of dates, three pounds of almonds, two and a half pounds of sweet potatoes, two bunches of kale, a bunch of chard, a bundle of asparagus, a large bag of salad mix, and three adorable little purple cabbages the size of my fist.

Oof.
