On to more pleasant topics. Yesterday I renewed my pledge to eat locally (and healthier). Last summer I joined a coop at a local farm - I got to pick up my share of organically grown vegetables every week for like 4 months. So, I joined again this year and yesterday was the first pick up.
The only problem is that I don't have a clue what some of the stuff is. There are always ALOT of greens. I know I got some kale, cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, radishes, possibly beets (which reminds me, I need to ask Cate for her beet recipe) and a bunch of other stuff I can't identify. I need to invite Norma over and maybe she could help me out! So, last night I heated up some olive oil (EVOO as Rachel Ray says - for some reason, my daughter loves watching Rachel Ray), threw in some garlic, then quickly cooked the kale and some other green stuff. Added some sesame oil, salt and pepper and threw some cooked shrimp on top. It was yummy. Reminder - I need to look for some of that sea salt everyone talks about.
Here are some of the pictures I promised from last time. The beautiful green fabric that was hand dyed by Susan. She also made the stoneware charm. I have to think of some extra special way to use this fabric. The greens are even more vibrant than the picture shows. Thank you Susan for a wonderful gift.
I finally sent off my package for The Dulaan Project. In the box are a woman's mohair sweater, a baby sweater and matching hat, a toddler's vest and 2 hats (one child sized and one adult sized).
For some reason I can't seem to load my spinning pictures so they will have to wait for another time. Instead I leave you with a picture of one of my favorite flowers - with the ever prevalent raindrops that we seem to be having lately.
