Wow — actually posting on pick up day! I don’t think this has happened since the first week.
This week’s haul included a lot more fruit, which I’m psyched about.
Kale, tomatoes, cucumber, ginger gold apples, eggplant, green bell pepper and a delicious melon that tastes like watermelon but has a beautiful pale yellow inside. I think the eggplant are going to go into a curry dish (I’ve had a hankering for some good curry), probably along with the green peppers. The apples will be great midday snacks, and the kale, I’m hoping, will keep until the weekend when I roast up a chicken and use the carcass for stock, because I’m thinking kale and bean soup sounds yum! Not sure what I’ll do with the rest, but I’m sure it’ll find a home in someone’s belly!
Last week I made a bean salad from the Penzeys Spice catalog — it came out so pretty and colorful that I had to take a quick picture of it.
The grape tomatoes came from Ed’s garden and the goat cheese is my own addition because everything’s better with cheese, right?
Also, I wanted to share this fun photo from the weekend. What do you think it is?
It’s bacon fat from cooking breakfast bacon, poured into two plastic cups nesting inside one another. The inner cup warped and melted, while the outer cup stayed solid. The color reminds me of the amber pieces that wash up on beaches in Denmark. Who knew bacon fat could be so beautiful?!
