I am so, so, happy, because you know I love vegetables, and chocolate hazelnut butter, and music, and coffee, and people who sell me muffins and make me swoon.
Yesterday I was incredibly hungover. Incredibly. I almost died. But early in the morning, before I even realized I was hungover I went to the Far Mar (copyright Jess Sconed 2009) and bought a leek and pears and turnips! I know, I am surprised about the turnips too, but there was a booth with samples of raw turnips and whoa, they were good. I also got some coffee from Cafe Velo and a marionberry muffin from Black Sheep and got home and suddenly realized that I was dying and spent the next six hours in bed trying not to vomit.
When I finally felt better, I made Swiss Chard with Raisins and Capers from Terry’s upcoming book. I actually bought the chard at the market last week (yes, I let it get wilty in my fridge for a week, shame shame). It was still good, though! I am loving the flavor combination of capers and raisins and will be making this all the time.
Did I mention that I went to New York and Montreal recently? And that I went to San Francisco not that long ago? There might have to be a big travel entry.
