The Final Share

Greeting, my mushrooms! Welcome to the final installment of what we got from our farm share! That is to say that it would be the final share before we transition to our monthly winter share though we still aren't sure if the winter share is happening for sure.

Jen left early this morning for Texas while I left slightly later for New Jersey. I'm not sure which of us made out better in this situation. I got to sleep in a little (until 6:20AM) but Jen got to go to Texas instead of New Jersey. It's truly a toss up.

After a longer day than anticipated I stopped by the farm share pickup and waited in a line of the slowest horrible yuppies I've ever encountered. I may be a horrible yuppie myself but at least I'm quick about it. Here's what we got for our final pickup:

1 head broccoli, 1 butternut squash, 1 head of garlic, 1.5 pounds of mixed greens, 1 bunch of leeks, 1 bunch of yellow carrots, 1.5 pounds of potatoes, 1 bunch of sage, 1 bunch of tatsoi.

Given that Jen was out of town I decided to wait for her to return before I made anything with the new veggies. Instead I had some leftovers from Jen's dinner last night. And just for completion's sake, here's bringing us up to speed for what we've missed in the past few days. I found these pictures on the camera when I downloaded tonight's pics.

It appears that on Friday night Jen made a baked potato with these very strange red green onions she found at the supermarket.

Sunday afternoon I made a salad for lunch out of some of our mixed greens along with some feta, beets, pistachios, and pomegranate.

It would appear that for dinner last night Jen made an apple walnut salad and had some rotisserie chicken with cornbread and baked potato.

Tonight I had the leftover chicken with cornbread and had some bread with balsamic shallot mustard to go along with it. It was pretty tasty and, most importantly, very easy.

Tomorrow I'm working from the time I wake up until the time I get home from work. Thursday is shaping out to be a shorter day. Jen's flight gets in late so hopefully we'll have a late dinner with an update.

What will await us? What sort of vegetable antics will occur? Only time will tell, friends.

See you Thursday!

My new favorite thing to say ever is "Greeting, my Mushrooms!"
