Hello my darlings! Welcome to Fresh Foods Wednesday #81!
Okay loves – 2 big things to share with you today!
1. I’m too excited to sleeeeeeeeeep!!! Finally – after 2 years of no fresh foods for little ‘ole me – I have a CSA again!!! We’re talkin, local, organically grown, small scale, seasonal produce bitches! I’m one happy, happy, happy lady! My new provider is Farm City Co-Op and they use a collection of farms – including 24 Avenue Farm, Barefoot Farms, Cherry Lane Farms, Earth Apple Farm, Farmers on 57th, Giddy Up & Grow, Urban Digs Farm, and Urban Edibles – to make local food accessible in the urban center. Not bad, eh? This week I got:
- Dandelion greens;
- 2 mothers of daikon radish;
- Pea shoots;
- Swiss chard;
- Braising greens.
2. On Friday, I’m hosting a giveaway for a copy of the cookbook SPQR by, well, the peeps responsible for the restaurant of the same name, Shelley Lindgren, Matthew Accarrino and Kate Leahy. Thanks to Ten Speed Press, I’ve got a copy for me and a copy for you which is lucky, because when testing one of the recipes from the book, I got a giant hunk of sauce all over the page. And let’s be honest, you don’t want my dirty, dog eared copy. But you DO want the book – especially if you like carbs, Italian dishes, slow food from scratch, wine and pretty much anything else that makes life worth living. So come back Friday to enter to win your own copy. And to drool over the recipe I made. I won’t tell you what it was right now, but I will tell you it was phenomenal! See you on Friday!
…..Did I mention it was on Friday?
