We brought $10 to the farmers’ market on Saturday morning, and came away with white onions, new red potatoes, kiwis, plum tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, japaleño, poblano and cubanelle peppers. The bonus for me was James Taylor music playing from a vendor’s truck parked near the produce tent.
The first thing I made after coming home was garlicky eggs scrambled in olive oil with peppers, onions, tomatoes, my favourite vegan cheese, black pepper and sea salt. Oh, did the kitchen ever smell amazing!
(After I tweeted that I was chopping the jalapenos to freeze, some of you were wondering why. They were $1.50 for a whole basket — about fifteen peppers — and I knew we’d never eat that many in a week. Peppers freeze really well, so I washed, diced, and froze them. I did the same with the huge white onion I bought. It’s great to have them pre-chopped and on-hand for cooking!)
