Triumphant return

Taking a brief break from all the special event-focused blogging, I must share some of the yummy foods that have been gracing my kitchen! When Erin Gunn visited last week, she finally brought me a package of these Spelt Right bagels from her brother-in-law Kip’s work.

I have been enjoying them every morning along these lines:

Mmmm, melty pb, mushy banana, and cinnamon: one of the many holy trifectas of breakfast dishes!

I also received a completely surprise mystery package from my buddies at Bob’s Red Mill:

The soup mixes look tasty, but I was most excited about the chia seeds because chia seeds are MAGIC.

I stewed a bag of so-so cherries, an overripe banana, and three stalks of rhubarb … and then added the magic seeds for some thickening action:

Yummmmmmmmmmm. I know I say I have many favorite things, but stewed rhubarb has to be right up there at the top of the list!

Can you guess where I got the rhubarb?!!

That’s right, my CSA started back up last weekend! Erik and I got the Mega Share this season, so the week’s loot included: strawberries, rhubarb, eggs, potatoes, garlic scapes, bok choy, cilantro, spinach, mesclun, and pretty pretty wildflowers. I am so excited to eat this week πŸ˜€

Speaking of triumphant returns, Erik and I walked over the Brooklyn Bridge after work on Friday and saw amazing things.

Rainy, torrential Manhattan:

Sunny, happy Brooklyn:

Cue rainbow:

We followed the rainbow all the way over to Brooklyn, where a pot of gold was waiting in the form of unsweetened dried papaya spears and unsweetened dark chocolate disks from Sahadi’s:

Brooklyn … sigh πŸ˜€

    Yaaay Brooklyn! Lucky you with that rainbow. πŸ™‚ Sahadi’s is in my hood, ya know. We could buy a picnic’s worth there and enjoy it on the floor of my apt for our next supper club edition, hehe.

    Thanks for coming out to see me/us the other night (even though we got no rainbow, hehe…) – I had so much fun!
