It seems as though every week, my bag gets heavier and heavier. This week was no exception. I was beside myself to see corn at the market. Only one vendor was selling it, the counter was 3 people deep, and the wads of money being exchanged were impressive. I brought home 8 ears and they're already gone. They seem a bit smaller than usual - I'm thinking that's due to the weather. Carrots and shallots are making their first appearance of 2008. I'm not sure why I thought I needed four products from the onion/garlic family but there you go. And those patty pan squash? I'm thinking of stuffing them with spinach and cottage or ricotta cheese, per a recipe from the St Paul Farmer's Market Cookbook. Has anyone done this? Or grown these? They're so pretty.
I love vegetables. It's almost frightening how happy they make me.
