In this week’s bag:
- frozen cauliflower
- frozen haricot vert
- adirondack blue potatoes
- red skin potatoes
- pea greens
- salad mix!
- empire apples
Well, it’s official. The beau and I have successfully made it through our first twenty-four hour bug. Technically I was the only sick one, but he put up with the well, you know. And now that it has passed, I have my appetite back!
Tonight I’m going to make a classic “breakfy for dinner” meal, scrambled tofu with homefries! We’ve mastered the tofu seasonings (curry, mustard, garlic and onion powder, fresh black pepper) and with blue potatoes on hand, I can not resist the comfort of Sunday morning on a windy Thursday evening. You better believe those pea greens and salad mix are going to make it into our daily big green salads, and the cauliflower, well, that’s going to become buffalo heaven. I don’t think I’ve ever had frozen cauliflower so I’m curious to see how crispy this batch will come out. As for the haricot vert, I’m still searching for the perfect recipe and they will (for now) be tossed into the freezer.
The small bouquet came from Flower Scout, who by the way, is officially starting her CSA in May! So, if you live in the Troy area or pass by here from work, you should definitely check out her work/site and sign up. It sounds like you can do it on a monthly basis, and she does deliver locally if you can’t make it (for an additional fee); she came to our new apartment to deliver the second day we were here and stopped by the beau’s store yesterday for an exchange of goods. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, she is not only doing what seems to be something she thoroughly enjoys, but is making this city a more beautiful place to live with her growing lots. I’ll support her as much as I can each month. Gotta invest in your home/community, right?
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! Stay happy, active and healthy!
And for those of you wondering, I beat that bug with plenty of sleep, a loooong bubble bath, fresh cherry juice and peppermint oil in my water to naturally settle the stomach. Oh, and a walk before bed to get some fresh air and stretch my achy muscles. I try to avoid medications and tend to allow the body to fight it’s fight. Do what’s best for you and listen to your body- it knows how to heal itself from the inside out.
