Market Vegetables, Sprouted Breads & more...

We finally got to the market this week! And we even played some music there this week (they were looking for musicians to play). We played a Cajun duo (video here) by David Rimelis (written for us) and a duo (Nocturne) that Scott (my husband) wrote. You can hear it here (#3).

So here's a list of what we got at this week's market: lemon cucumber, brown rice, golden zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, tomatoes, green pepper, celery, onions, pattypan squash, peaches, shiitakes, cucumbers, green beans, those tiny little eggplants (forgot the name), and yellow cherry tomatoes.

A while ago, I ordered some sprouted grain breads from French Meadow Bakery (they only ship one day a week, so get your order in early).  I got a bread, some bagels, and tortillas.  I LOVE bagels, so it's been rough for me without them (trying not to eat so much processed flour).  The bagel was very good, not the traditional kind I'm used to getting when I visit New Jersey, but still very good.  I think it needed to be toasted longer, because by the time I ate it, it almost was as if I hadn't toasted it at all!  Ate it with my Tofutti Cream Cheese.  Tried the tortilla out yesterday with leftover Sunburgers and Raw Ranch Dressing with raw veggies. The tortilla was very fresh tasting....good stuff.

Made some hummus the other day. Since I'd cooked up a bunch of was different. Not as moist as my usual hummus.  Made it with just a little tahini, lemon juice, salt, broccoli and roasted red peppers.

Also with the garbanzos......I found a recipe for Simple Chole, from VeggiePlatter's blog. It was really good and pretty simple. Next time I think we'll add some red pepper flakes to spice it up.

And here's a special picture of my grapefruit.....and it's alien:

Eat smart,


  1. Bravo, Bravo--what a great performance! I am going to be listening to it again and again! I loved it--right up my blue-grass alley and so beautifully played! Your hummus looks yummy, too--but the music was amazing!

  2. Thanks so much, Kelly!! And we just performed the whole 3 movement piece last night on a recital.

  3. WOW! Your market bounty looks wonderful. I love lemon cukes. I just started a new veg foodie blog myself and am looking for other veg blogs for inspiration. Thanks for your "Bloggers of the Week" and your list of Great Food Blogs.

  4. i've heard deabtes about how vegan it is. i put a link up and some italics on it. i'm not one of those people that tries for personal purity. being as-vegan-as-i-can for almost 11 years is more important to me than burning out from trying to be perfect. i can't help that pictures have gelatin and the gas in my car hurt animals. i do the best i can.

  5. THanks for the input, bitt. Shayla-thanks, and looking forward to checking out your blog!

  6. I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have
    something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it's triggered by the sincerness communicated in the article I browsed. And after this post "Market Vegetables, Sprouted Breads & more...". I was excited enough to drop a thought ;-) I do have a few questions for you if it's allright.
    Could it be only me or does it look like some of the responses
    come across like left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are
    writing on additional social sites, I'd like to follow you. Would you list all of all your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
