I'm loving all the veggies that have been arriving in my share from Cooper's CSA Farm & Maze. Week 17 contained white corn, fingerling potatoes, tomatoes, beets, garlic, and an ambercup or buttercup squash and sweet peppers.
Now I don't know if this was a buttercup or an ambercup squash; but what I do know is that it was FANTASTIC! Dry flesh and so sweet, mashed and enjoyed with butter, salt, pepper, smidge of brown sugar and a tiny pinch of cinnamon.
At the disgust of my mother I'm including this picture!! The fingerling potatoes were of such varied shapes....I'll let you guess what I thought this one looked like. Each week I roll my eyes with pleasure, these however were so good, now I understand why they are so expensive to buy at the store.
Week 17 was also fantastic in that I finally received a comment from someone other than my Mom or friend Steph. "Mick" is a runner, like a "real marathon runner"!! and asked about the reason for the move and some pictures.
The move is something that I would have never anticipated. I love the Village of Brooklin and will miss it dearly. The condo that we purchased for my parents has been delayed again. After having my parents live with us for the last two summers it's just not fair to them, or us, to continue to live with no firm date of completion in sight.
As a family, we decided to move closer to the city. The biggest benefits are way shorter commute times to work for my husband and myself, and two distinctly separated living areas for all of us.
I don't have a lot of photo's but this will be my new kitchen! I love to cook and generally hang out in the kitchen with my lap top that I plan to set up in that little nook.
I've finally been back at quilting and sadly had to run on the treadmill--boo hiss--due to the crappy weather this morning. Off to watch Amazing Race........
