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 😀
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:
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 😀
