Where normal is...
One wee Z looking for the measuring cup of milk I forgot to leave in the fridge for his cereal and trying to pour it himself; one mama Z dropping the container of said cereal on the floor, shattering it to pieces; me trying to sweep it up, while the other wee Z wanting the crust off her bagel (??) but really only eating the cream cheese anyway; then me trying to make up my salad for my lunch since I lied yesterday and even though I said we do assembly line salads, that didn't actually happen this week; then one mama Z rushing back over with some hair ties and attempts at keeping wee Zs hair out of her face while wee Z clings to daddy Z for dear life, then finishes just in time to give each Z five, yes it must be five, kisses (and one big one) before walking out the door to my ride as I realize I am leaving sans make-up and running gear.
Yep. Back to normal! Finally!!
And what better box to kick off our fall farm share than a "normal" share this week. I say "normal" because I actually recognized everything in the box this week. Even the shallots! (Ok, the arugula took me a sec since they were still with their stems.)
|A normal box: eggplant, kale, celery, corn, green peppers, watermelon (Yay!)|
tomatoes, arugula, shallots
The plan for this here box-o-goodness?
I am definitely going to re-attempt to make the grilled eggplant dish
The kale will probably be for the lentil soup - I'm going to try it with regular lentils rather than red this time around. If it is good, we have a new baby in our first church fam and I am guessing the parents would like a night or two off from cooking.
And I just saw this post by Teresa over at Farm Share Stories and I am thinking that corn is going to be some chowdah. And what the heck is more normal in New England than chowder.
