So, I love to cook. You all should know this by now due to my incessant posts about food. My local farmers’ market, Hollygrove Market, has a special every week where you can buy a hodgepodge of their local arrivals for $25 dollars. Now you may think, that’s a pretty steep price for some produce. But bear in mind it’s all local and organic. Imagine how much that would run you at Whole Foods! Plus, they have a Yelp! check-in discount of 10% off your total purchase, to it ended up being $23. Naturally, I bought it. All of this, actually.
Then I got home, unloaded by pack, and had a stare-off with this mountain of produce that I really have no idea what to do with.
It’s really intimidating. And what the hell is chard? I don’t know what chard is. It sounds like some scientific name for fecal matter. Anyway, my challenge is to cook all is this by the time the next box is ready for pick-up (one week). Every single thing on the list. Which I suppose is good because it will force me to be an intrepid cook, to be creative , and use foreign produce that I think sounds like fecal matter. And my meals have become rather monotone as of lately, so this should help. With that said, first meal is cooking and will be here shortly! :)
For the two of you who read this, tanks, mons! And happy hump day.
