Boy Bought Veg

Boy Bought Veg

Nope, the assortment of produce above wasn’t purchased by me. This is the second week in a row that I haven’t been able to get to the market, and I’m starting to feel the pangs of withdrawal. This time, it was work; I don’t generally do Sundays but was called upon this week. Luckily Andrew went to the market in my stead, following my shopping list (lower left) to the letter.

In fact, he went slightly overboard- how we’re going to eat all this food, I’m interested to see! Bread and eggs are easy, I have breakfast every day, after all. The squash and carrots will probably become soup, as I’ve yet to try the recipe I talked about last week.

Broccoli is my favourite veg, so I never have a problem using them. Fresh365‘s Broccoli-Cheddar soup looks great, or maybe I’ll make a crunchy vinegar “cooked” salad like my Spicy Broccoli one. As for the sprouts, I’ve been dying to try Orangette‘s Cream-Braised Brussels Sprouts. Mushrooms will go into a favourite Indian meal of mine, Madhur Jaffrey’s Garlicky Masala Omelette.

What are you cooking this week?

    Last night we went to Lillian’s Dad’s for dinner and had a broccoli ginger soup, it was really good. (even though I’m not a broccoli fan)

    I bought broccoli again this week too. I wasn’t sure what to do with it, but I am now definitely making your spicy broccoli salad. I have the goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes already- I think it was meant to be!

    I think it’s time for me to move to England and get wonderful vegetables like yours! I like your hippo, btw.
