- one mammoth green onion
- Butterhead(?) lettuce
- Bordeaux spinach
- red leaf lettuce
- green leaf lettuce
- chocolate raspberry pecan muffins
- 3 tomatoes(!)
- half dozen eggs
Wow, so where did the tomatoes come from?! Pretty cool. I know that
cilantro + tomatoes + green onion = salsa,
but these tomatoes make me want to cook Italian again. Maybe I’ll chop them up, cook them just a little with some red pepper flakes, add some shrimp, and serve over pasta. Anybody have ideas for what to do with cilantro if you don’t make salsa?
There’s a great spinach salad to be had here with the green onion and strawberries. Maybe even a strawberry vinaigrette, too. We haven’t had the Bordeaux spinach in a while, so I’m excited about that.
I’m very happy to have all the lettuce and carrots for salads. This lettuce works well on sandwiches, too. I should point out that I’d already eaten a couple of carrots when this picture was taken.
So my plan during the week is to have muffins and yogurt for breakfast and salads for lunch. It’s nice how eating these salads at my desk never feels like deprivation. If I put it all on a real plate and eat it with a real fork, it’s a gourmet lunch.
Having gotten all the baking out of my system for a while, I’m looking forward to scrambled eggs and salad. I was happy to see these eggs came from Red Hott Tomatoes in Bowdon. I got to meet these chickens last weekend along with Nancy and Jacque. Their farm is amazing, and I’m looking forward to returning this weekend to take more pictures.
I hope one day to look as healthy as Nancy and Jacque’s chickens do. They are bright and shiny and fluffy and alert and busy. It was really neat to be there. Here are two pictures I took before my battery died (d’oh!).
