So I joined a produce co-op. Each week I pay my “contribution” toward a beautiful basket of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, and then every Saturday morning I tip-tap over in my stilettos and and pick the basket up.
Just kidding. Since I get there at about 6:00 am, I’m barely mobile. Ain’t no way I’m dressing up that early in the morning. I do get out of my pajamas, though, for which the world is eternally grateful. (Read this post.)
Anyway! This is what a typical basket looks like!
Well, this is my typical basket. Isn’t it darling? I never had anywhere to use it before, but now it’s perfect for carrying my fresh produce home!
Empty it, and it looks like this!
And there are delightful surprises inside, like canary melon and red corn! Which looks like your sweet, ordinary corn, except soaked in a bloodbath.
I’m surprised to find that I enjoy cooking if I’m cooking with cool, colorful foods. I’m a baker/dessert girl, but a normal meal? Meh. This has been a great experience. Think of me every evening, wielding a knife with the most fiendish of glee. At last, my arm is complete again. ;)
So I’m curious about you! Bakers? Chefs? Toasting Poptarts with the best of them? Tell me about your experiences in the kitchen!
