Have no idea what I am making (yet), but thought I would post what my veggie stash held this afternoon: kale, cabbage, collards, mixed greens, carrots, turnips, beets and lemongrass.
Adjusting to the quantities in my medium box and trying to figure out how many meals this will get me through. In today’s box: beets, carrots, broccoli, radishes, fennel, parsley, salad mix, kale, and spinach. Also still working my way through a ginormous stash of butternut and sweet potato.
Wishing you all a safe and happy day with your loved ones. We kicked off our mini-celebration with cinnamon rolls (as per usual) and are gonna hunker down with some books until the sun scares the cold away. Happy cooking!

It is book festival weekend! We have our paper schedule all marked up and will spend the rest of today narrowing down our final slate of sessions to attend.

Click through to read about Julie Turshen and to preview a recipe from Feed the Resistance.
Traditions and an upcoming bake sale means we have a week of lots of desserts – birthday cake (for him), birthday pie (to celebrate same birthday at work) and mini-cakes for next weekend’s Austin Bakes. Still working out particulars, but more to come…
Shaking my serial snacker ways and re-committing to proper sit-down lunches. Today was a lovely kickoff: spinach salad with cabbage, sprouts, quinoa, watermelon radish, raw carrots, boiled egg, pumpkin, seeds and my favorite mustard vinaigrette from Deborah Madison (’cause OMG capers!).
Goodness! I still have mountains of summer squash around! I don’t usually struggle too much with what to make (it can be shredded and put in everything from migas to risotto to baked things), but I do start getting a bit bored by my usual rotation by… you know… OCTOBER. Hopefully the following list will help you power through the last of it:
Pulling together a variation of my winter taco salad for dinner tonight. Have some black beans cooling, am pulling a jar of my shelf-stable salsa from the pantry, and chopping up some fixings. What do you have cooking?
