An Abundant Day

Yesterday was amazing ... I'm still dragging my butt out of bed in the mornings and getting what I need to get done, but yesterday I felt like Superwoman!
By 11 am I had :
  • bread rising (but it flopped and weighs a brick)
  • eggs were boiling to go into sandwich filling for dinner and Axel's lunch today
  • beets from our local CSA were simmering away
  • zucchini bread was in the oven - you can get my new recipe here - yummmeeee!
  • and I finally refined my recipe for mock apple pie - it turned out really good this time.

1. my A-7, 2. hand-pieced HAL, 3. Zucchini Bread, 4. Blogged A-7 5. Cooked beets 6. "Scandinavian" sandwich filling

Oh, and in the midst of all this, I was WORKING! I wrote this really long, picture-packed blog post about how to piece A-7 block for Contemporary Jane.

But I have to give most the credit to Superman, who came home after his own busy day and cleaned up the kitchen after I had packed up my basket with zucchini bread and pie and ran out the door to cooking club with our local CSA. What fun! I think there were 8 to 10 of us and we used red beet in 6 different recipes.
  • pureed soup - with carrots and onion garnished with cream, chive and a nasturtium
  • baked - with garlic and herbs
  • as a carpaccio with capers
  • pan-fried with peaches
  • raw salad with apples and raisins
  • as a coulee with ginger and raspberries served over ice cream
I think that nearly all the vegetables and herbs came from our field. Fresh dill, anise, thyme, oregano, chives and more! It was fun, our first meeting. I think it's fair to say they were all a tad surprised but intrigued with my baked "vegetable" goodies. I am loving the CSA experience and am hoping to get more involved and cooking up some new recipes for us all. Pin It Now!
