What’cha snackin’ on today? We’ve been munching through pounds of carrots. Plain, dipped in hummus, or cut into coins and popped like popcorn. So good. 12yo loves the yellow ones best lately.
Okra, poblanos, jalapeños, green tomatoes, red cabbage, beets, carrots, onions, zucchini, slicing cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, and eggplant.
Bursting with summer it was today… said Yoda. We have leeks, beets, parsley, green beans(!!) serranos, greenish tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, red onions, red cabbage, kale, fennel, and cucumbers!

Luckily, this week is more tame and I am looking forward to some afternoon and morning time in the kitchen. After careful assessment of fridge and pantry contents, I’ve decided that this is what we’re doing Meals Chickpea Salad Sandwiches | Spaghetti Squash Alfredo Vegetable […]
