Vegetables in the Snow
It is snowing.
It will snow again.
So much for all the locals predicting a dry winter!
I like snow on Christmas and on ski slopes. That's about it.
So nice to come home, just so... snowy.
I trekked back out in the snow to the grocery store. I can't handle it when my vegetable shelf is empty.
I went a bit nuts:
10 jewelled yams
3 heads of brocolli
2 pounds of carrots
3 enormous heads of garlic
2 extra large onions
3 heads of lettuce
a head of cabbage
a red bell pepper
and a huge butternut squash
And thank goodness mandarin oranges are in season!
Tomorrow we will eat a large portion of those veggies raw, with hummus.
I'm doing something with cabbage and jewelled yams for dinner.
What, that doesn't sound good to you?
And Tuesday I'm going to make something stew-ish or chicken pot pie-ish, depending on how I feel and how much time I spend unpacking.
"When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
Welcome wool sweaters."
