I just don't wanna go anywhere for a good, long spell...
Bottom line is - I'm home. I can join a CSA. Which means that every Sunday, I can roll into the Mar Vista Farmers Market and pick up my full share of organic food. A big huge box full of all kinds of fruit and veggies for about $28 bucks. $10 extra bones gets me a huge bushel of flowers (of my choice). It's just heaven. When have I been able to commit to something like this in the past 3 years?
And, when I've sorted my CSA, I can just mosey about the market and flush out the bounty from JR's and bring it all home to the soon-to-be remodeled FLOBO kitchen and go nuts. Toss on some tunes, wash everything down. Make soup. I killed some Greek green beans today. Chomp on blueberries. Suck down a juicy strawberry. Chat up the neighbors and plot and plan a billon recipes with fava beans. Never cooked them before, but something big is gonna shake down this week.
What a brilliant way to spend a day. Then, oh joy, then...I discovered an app called: Still Tasty. It's a website, too, but for real - the app is insane. Tells you how to store EVERYTHING proper and if you enter your goods, it sends you alerts like TIMES UP! Meaning ditch those apples, sorry! Best thing I've stumbled across in years. Like, I knew the best way to keep basil fresh is snip bottoms, put in about an inch of water, cover with plastic bag and keep on counter (never put basil in fridge, it turns black and fross so fast). Same steps go for mint - but who knew it should reside in the fridge not on the counter? God, I just love it all.
Cannot wait for my new kitchen. Guess what I really want is a restaurant)
