Ship’s Log–June 22nd


This morning, on the way to the supermarket, we stopped by at our local farmer’s market to check out the seasonal produce. I filled five shopping bags. Big ones. I found three different kinds of kale, two kinds of lettuce, arugula, broccoli rabb, local strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, English peas, snap peas, green beans and even a few early tomatoes. It was heaven…and I bought way too much for my fridge to hold.

I wound up turning the arugula into a pesto so that I could freeze most of it. We ate the raspberries with lunch and one of the kale types for dinner. Even still, the fridge looks like it’s going to explode.

This evening I put some of that gorgeous produce to use, laying out a spread and hosting a World Cup Viewing Party. Great game, but I can’t believe we let Portugal score in the last 30 seconds like that!
