In this week’s bag:
- golden plums
- red tomatoes
- romaine lettuce
- joi choi bok choy
- purple carrots
- red, white & blue potatoes
I didn’t get an opportunity to check out the veggies until about ten o’clock last night, hence the bright light of the bedroom. I had to carry the mini table into the bedroom because our living room was pure darkness; we don’t have a light just yet. I’m glad I did, many of these veggies needed to get into the fridge asap.
We decided to add-on the extra fruit subscription because the past couple of weeks that we’ve received our bag, we’ve been jealous of the fruit available and the fact that we didn’t jump on it sooner. The blackberries I’m going to share tonight at a little get-together with my friends from China; they are big, sweet and will be perfect paired with wine and an assortment of snacks. I look forward to this night each year to catch up and reminisce on our trip.
No late night for me, I’ve got a long run at 5am tomorrow and the Farmer’s Market following that. The beau is teaching a class at the local arts center and then we have to rush off to Albany for a wedding at the State Room. I’m pretty excited a) because I’ve never been there, b) I enjoy getting all dolled up lately, and c) there’s an open bar. Nothing but relaxation and cooking planned for Sunday.
Because I’m the fan of bok choy, I’m going to make a big stir fry with mushrooms and shredded carrots over rice. We picked up some Braggs liquid aminos that I’d like to experiment with instead of using tamari; my personal favorite. I’m also the one in the apartment that eats tomatoes so I’m most likely going to search the web for a new Indian dish that incorporates them. The nectarines are sweet! I had one for snack this morning and those plums intrigue me; I’ve never had a golden plum. Hopefully they are just as delicious as the purple variety because I’ll eat a couple prior to my run tomorrow morning. And as for the potatoes, those will probably wait patiently in the basket they are kept in until the evening that we crave a tofu scramble with homefries. Those evenings are the best.
It’s suppose to be a gorgeous weekend, hope you all get outside to enjoy it! Anyone looking to run 10+ miles, text me tonight. Anyone not looking to run 10+, I don’t blame ya! Leave me words of encouragement; I like to use it as motivation to finish what I set out to accomplish. Stay happy and healthy my friends!
