 I love that Whole Foods is all about local produce, people and products!
My game plan for Saturday? Cheese curds, empanadas, and perhaps a beer!  I love a good beer and am excited at the prospect of finding one that is locally based that I love.  I tend to be a snob with taste.  I don’t drink often, or much for that matter.  But when I do, I want it to be delicious! 
I plan on making a large batch of custom guacamole to bring home for The Toddler.  With his food allergies it is always nice to be able to make a product from scratch-enabling me to know what is exactly in the batch. Plus, he loves guacamole dipped cucumbers with a side of chips for an afternoon snack.  I also want to get a Whoopie pie for the Husband and I for a treat for after the little one’s are in bed.  Saturday night date night at home!  

This is going to be so much fun to get out- wear some real clothes(aside from my usual mom attire) and listen to some local tunes!

The local band playing the event is Ruca from Cave Creek, AZ.
