(of a woman) Having a full, rounded figure; plump.

Just a fun blog about a local market. After temple today we went to the local market. We saw lots of pickles, fruit, flowers, meat, and enormous bras for zaftig women. Outside the market ladies were selling flowers. The pickles reminded me when my Zadie used to come to our house to can pickles in our basement; it was quite a production.




Blueberries in season! They sell them on the streets and highways in these jars




Reminded me of my Zadie’s pickles


There must be more to this picture but wasn’t sure why they were all lined up selling flowers in this manner.

    I am not kidding, I can still recall the taste of Grandpa’s pickles. I think Florene has custody of the family recipe. I really need to get that recipe sometime. How likely we are to actually make those pickles is another story. But I would love to have it.
