Today's market finds: cucumbers, bell peppers, Asian pears, apples, satsumas, mustard greens, turnips, oak leaf lettuce, yellow squash (tiny ones!), shiitake mushrooms, sweet potatoes (am I going to have to have a sweet potato challenge??), popcorn rice, tomatoes, grape tomatoes, kale(YAY!), and green beans.
For dinner, I roasted some vegetables, but I added eggplant, since I needed to use it up. Also added a little balsamic vinegar near the end, for flavor. Served with polenta. Wasn't that into it. My husband liked it though! I could've used more vinegar. Was thinking of making a balsamic reduction for it....not enough time. Next time I'll try that. Does it really take a couple of hours to make? Anyone?
Maybe tomorrow I'll make a millet dish. I came across some good recipes from various blogs......I think I'm becoming addicted to food blogs. Is that wrong?? I look at Google reader everyday (ok, several times a day) to see what's new in my billion blogs I'm subscribed to! I can't keep up with you guys.
Was such a nice day today....walked in the park for 45 minutes. Lots of ducks, swans, geese, egrets, and even a heron. Although we did get chased by some aggressive Muscovy ducks.....
Ok, that's all for now.
