Happy Daylight Savings Time! Did everyone remember to “spring ahead”? Luckily most of my clocks remember to do it for me. Good thing. Because I never remember crap like that. I feel like Daylight Savings Time gets a lot of hate. Everyone hates loosing that precious hour of sleep. Not me. I am eager to give it up in exchange for having an hour more of daylight each night. Consider it a gift, my darling daylight savings time.
Mmm. There’s just something about sitting on a porch in the evening. For months now, I have been having springtime daydreams of relaxing on my front porch, slowly sipping some tasty concoction. Some winter-vanquishing elixir. I can almost hear the crickets.
Anyway, there isn’t too much in the way of produce available this time of year. Plus I have kind of a lot going on this week that will prevent me from making dinner every night. Some fabulous friends of mine are getting married next weekend. Cannot wait.
So it’s so very nice that this Farm Stand thing gives me the flexibility to just order what we are going to eat this week. I got TWO bags of pea shoots, because not only am I on a crazy salad kick (I gotta compensate for these lovelies somehow), but they are great sauteed and in all kinds of other stuff too! Is there a pea shoot soup (Say that five times fast) in my future? I dunno, maybe!
And a big bag of these beautifully colored mixed carrots.
And that’s it!
I still have a lot left over from previous weeks, including a few turnips, purple carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, shallots, garlic, and even a few blue potatoes. I guess you’ll just have to hang around and see what I make with all of it!
Where’d it all come from?
- The carrots are from Tuscarora Organic Growers Co-op
- The pea shoots are from Pucker Brush Farm
- I got all of these veggies via Penn’s Corner Farm Stand. (You order what you want in advance, and then go pick it up on a designated date!
