I’ve had a wonderful week so far. For dinner, penne with tomato sauce from scratch and broccoli from the farmer’s market. Also from the farmer’s market: the red leaf lettuce and cherry tomatoes, dressed with a lime vinaigrette and toasted walnuts. The ribbons of chard were leftovers from the farmer’s market. More on that in a minute.
Ever since I bought 5lbs of blood oranges, I’ve been eating them like crazy. Can’t let them go bad!!
Ate lunch outside with Jones on our warm deck. We brought home vegan Kenyan food from the farmer’s market: black eyed peas with cilantro oil and lime; swiss chard and scallions; quinoa; sauteed, smoky portabello mushrooms. A gigantic takeaway contained, enough to feed 5, was $10. I really love eating outside in the warm sun. Everything tastes better, fresher, more alive.
Very expensive knick knacks at the market. There were stones on sale from the Finger Lakes area! Abalone shells were $85. He had an arrowhead necklace for$700. WTF. There was a beautiful turquoise bracelet for around $100. I’d rather just buy vegetables at a farmer’s market, thanks.
Beets! Next week I’m going back for the golden beets and doing some serious pickling action.
Love the pink Ikea stool. Wanna steal it from my mom. Happy Wednesday! XO
