Hi yalll!

I went to Produce Junction today with my mom. Holy crepe. We spent $20 and got roughly: 4 big bunches of kale, 16 apples, 12 bananas, 4 avocados, 2 cartons of blueberries, 2 boxes of strawberries, 14 zucchini, 12 baby eggplant, insane giant heads of romaine (one of which I just washed and I have enough for my entire week of salad lunches), big bunch of basil, and I think I'm forgetting something.

So - I can't possibly eat my share before shiitake goes bad. I'm definitely going to make a crapload of stuff to freeze, but my freezer (hell my apartment) isn't big enough for all this.

After the divvying up with my parents, I have up for grabs -
-2 of the big asparagus romaine heads sooooo big
-5 baby eggplant
-5-6 zucchini

I'll see what else might be in there. Who wants it?

What kind of shitty vegans don't want free produce?

:P

Listen bisque, I just went to Whole Foods on Sunday and spent like $300.00 stocking my new kitchen!

Which basically just means that I am jealous of your thrifty produce purchase because I obviously spent way too much money on mine.

Yes but you have a fantastic new kitchen to celebrate, which necessitates an initial extraordinary shopping spree!

I'm gonna go with that reasoning. Cause it sounds so much better than me just going crazy! I also bought the Engine 2 Diet book and meal planned for the whole week for two people. So I bought a ton of food.

Kale - 1 bunch
Mustard Greens - 1 bunch
Arugala - 1 bunch
Tomatoes - 4
Asparagus - 2 bunches
Mushrooms - Loads
Baby Spinach - 1 large container
Yellow onions - 2
Red onions - 1
Cucumber - 1
Green Beans - 1 pound fresh
Green Onions - 2 bunches
Cole Slaw mix - 1 package
Peppers - 3 green, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 orange
Potatoes - 10 small red, 2 yams
Oranges - 5
Blueberries - 1 large container
Strawberries - 1 large container
Cantaloupe - 1
Pineapple - 1

And then I also got a slew of pantry items. So it's justified, maybe!

I'll take those eggplants off your hands if you need them taken. I wanna grill them and puree the pulp with olive oil, fresh garlic and salt. My summertime favorite. While on the subject of weekend produce hauls, between the Clark Park farmer's market, the Greensgrow stand at the Trenton Ave arts festival and mariposa co-op, I scored:

2 bunches of org. Red Russian Kale
1 huge bunch of scallions
1 pretty bunch of chives with the little chive flowers in them too!
3/4 lb. of asparagus
BEAUTIFUL green beans that are like 10-12 inches EACH BEAN
2 hydroponic tomatoes
head of green leaf lettuce
rhubarb
1 quart (from NJ) + 1 pint (from greensgrow) of the most beautiful strawberries
baby beet greens (sooo lovely)
lb. of spinach
golden delicious apples

all local and mostly organic for about $35. see the 'Sunday thread: what are you making for dinner this week thread' in the 'Food and Cooking in general' board for my intentions of this haul.

Last night I veganized the strawberry rhubarb pie recipe from this month's Grid magazine. Instead of a double crust, I made a single crust with a crumb topping, came out wonderful. Looking forward to desert tonight!

Whoaa I want to go shopping with you! Is the Trenton thing a one-time thing? Jersey does have the better blueberries...

What day do you want to meet for the eggplant? Do you want any romaine? :) Or zucchini?

Yeah that Trenton Ave. arts fest was a one-time deal in Fishtown. I was confused to, I thought it was in Trenton, but it's on Trenton Ave. in Philadelphia.

But I typically go to Clark Park Farmer's market, the co-op (which is opening to the general public in the fall), sometimes Greensgrow for most of my summertime produce needs. I'll be going to Clark Park and maybe Greensgrow this Saturday, if you have any produce needs by then. You can take the trolley at 22nd Street to 43rd and Baltimore one Saturday and meet me for some Clark Park shopping/lunch-timing, if you want. I will let you know next time I go to Greensgrow, I can even come pick you up (because I drive there) and we can do a brunch and farmer's market date!

Can you meet up tomorrow lunch time with the eggplants, and a few zucchinis? I think I'll be heading your way to do a little lunch time shopping with a co-worker. If that's not convenient, I can stop by your place after work on my way home.

Awesome! Yes I'll bring it tomorrow.

And I'll prob have to pass on going this weekend :) Since there's NO way I will need anything in the foreseeable future (and also since I'll be in Tejas). But sometime definitely!
