This week’s pickup: golden beets, sugar snap peas, green beans, spinach, mushrooms, green onions, blood oranges, apples, eggs, and bread (the bread is parmesan sourdough; I wanted to try their new “blackberry crumb” bread but it was all spoken for by the time I arrived).
I love getting snap peas and green beans. I look forward to sitting in front of the TV with a bowl of peas in my lap, pinching off stems one by one. I like doing that sort of thing by hand when I have time; it makes me feel like the most recent link in a long chain of food preparers, stretching back across time. Except, uh, that my ancestors probably weren’t trimming peas and beans while watching TV.
