So, I finally landed back in Boston yesterday. Phew! I luckily had a chance on my public transportation based-ride home to stop at the first Copley Farmer’s market of the season.
Might I say ‘woot!’ Man, was it nice to see the familiar faces and grope fresh spring produce. It certainly made my day after sitting for a few hours on a plane. I couldn’t take a picture of the event, because I didn’t have the camera, and it was sort of grey and rainy anyway. But I managed to pick up some early spring farmers market booty. Not bad at all.
I got Eggs and Bacon from Kate Stillman, and Ricotta, Angelito, and Bittery Buttery Gouda (a new cheese to try out) from Narragansett Creamery, and Onion, Peppercress and Mint from Siena Farms, and lastly Cucumber, Lettuce, Radish and Lacinato Kale from Atlas Farm. Nom! Spring Greenery!
Once I got home, I had to deal with some stressful calls and finally it was dinner time, but I hadn’t made anything for dinner. Theresa luckily came home and got me tipsy off of a combination of local white wine, rhubarb rush, and sparkling water. After that we made a very easy and simple dinner, akin to what Theresa has been making for herself recently.
After dinner I showed Theresa some tropical offerings from Florida that I had brought home.
I brought a mamey and two sapodilla fruit home. Both from small ‘local’ organic farms in Florida. They will take a little while to ripen (they are just that way) but they will provide a lovely tropical treat in the near future.
We also indulged in some vanilla ice cream from Maple Valley Creamery along with chocolate coconutty treat from Glaser Farms in Florida too.
And that was my first evening back in MA. Happy to be home!
