I have a project coming up using these books and I am much too excited. I even bought new scissors. Decoupage!! I'm not much of a crafty gal outside of the food world, so yeah, excitement is here.
Also exciting - this swiss chard. I had visited two other stalls at the downtown farmer's market and this bunch was practically twice the size of the others I'd eyed, and the same price of $2.25. And beautiful. And two ears of sweet corn and two fresh okra(s). why not?
I almost bought some fresh garbanzo beans - but looking at the $3 price tag for a pint, no matter how much I wanted to have a fun purchase, I only had so much money in my wallet and kept thinking that dried garbanzos are so much cheaper! or 79 cents = a can at Trader Joe's...
A colorful meal, using that pretty swiss chard - short grain brown rice and black beans, baked peach bbq tofu and a mix of chard, garlic, mushrooms and corn.
Stay tuned for the ole cookbook project~
