Today we spent the early afternoon at the produce farm, and we came home with five reusable grocery bags full of produce. Today's goodies included bananas, two types of green onions, parsley, collard greens (one of my favorites!), green beans, lemons, 5 different types of lettuce and kale, 4 dozen carrots, a large sweet onion, potatoes, and edible flowers (for a cake I'm going to make).
As I type Sean is preparing a meatloaf with some of the fresh ground beef from the farm, and steaming the fresh green beans that we got today. Since we started shopping at the farms he has become even more interested in cooking (I say "more", because he has always loved to cook), and I find myself cooking fewer days than he does now. It's a total win-win!
In addition to the goodies we get from the farms we get fresh citrus from one of Brian's customers. He came home on Friday with fresh lemons from the tree, and look at the size of them. On the left is a normal large lemon from a grocery store, and on the right is one from his customers tree. I see a couple of lemon cakes in the near future.
