food, cooking
So, this afternoon, we went over to ambermae's house for brunch. The occasion was that it's almost time for her to start Lent, and thus, we should engage in eating lots of things like bacon. :) The food was tasty (bacon, scrambled eggs, OJ, waffles, peach sauce for the waffles) and the company was stellar.

After that, we headed out to the farmer's market, where for the princely sum of $8.80, we acquired:

- over 2 pounds (not sure exactly how much, since it was just a box) of hothouse hydroponic tomatoes that smell like real tomatoes, not styrofoam. *bliss* (and wow, they taste as good as they smell. woot.)
- 2 pounds of spinach
- 4 pink lady apples
- one turnip
- a couple of pounds of red potatoes
- onion powder

I'm pleased with our haul. :)

So it's been a mostly good day. My sinuses are in revolt, though (cold? allergies? I'm not sure. Both are possibilities; all of the kids I tutor have been sick lately, and it's been warm enough lately to make the allergies kick in) which is making the rest of me feel like warmed over crud, so food, a warm bath, and early bed are on the list for the rest of evening.

Mmmmm. Tomatoes & spinach. What does one do with *one* turnip, though? (Our local newspaper recently had a whole article on the multiple uses of turnips and how they can stand on their own and not be hidden in stews or whatnot. Among other things, they suggested roasting them, and steaming them then mashing them into puree, with or without the addition of cream/broth.

I've been having awful attacks of what I'm fairly certain are allergies, but lots of coughing stemming from post-nasal drip. Yick. My sympathies/empathies for your symptoms.

I've never done much with them myself, but apparently one can grate them like carrots for salads, which is what we'll be doing with it this week.

And yea, I was so so glad to see the tomatoes. A lack of fresh tomatoes during the winter drives me crazy. When we have a house, I'll have to see if I can force some indoor ones during the winter.

but lots of coughing stemming from post-nasal drip. Yick.

Yea, that's what I've got going on here. I was fine most of yesterday, and then everything started draining last night. Coughing, sore throat, sore ears, ears that won't pop, stuffed up mess. Yick is right.
