Pyramid Veg

Pyramid Veg

This post has nothing whatsoever to do with pyramids, but I sort of arranged the veg like that, no? Anyway, I’m having a great day so far. A brisk morning run followed by a trip to the farmer’s market made up my morning, and since then I’ve been puttering around the house cooking, listening to music, DIY-ing and planning. Planning because I’m off on holiday on Friday, and have a busy week ahead of me.

Which I’ll need sustenance for, of course! It’s bright and sunny here today, and the shoppers and stall-holders were out at the market in equal force. (They’re already selling Christmas puddings- can you believe it?!) I didn’t want too go too crazy this week and have to throw out food at the end of it, but I do want to make sure that we eat well.

As you can see, I’m still on the corn bandwagon- and I plan to ride it until there’s nary a husk left at the market! It’s become Andrew’s favourite dinner lately, something he’ll roast up himself while I experiment with new recipes and foods.

The swede and butternut squash, along with some potatoes from the cupboard, are for just such an experiment. I haven’t quite worked out the recipe yet, but it’s inspired by a vegetable curry in my new Nigel Slater book. I’m loving cooking from this book already, and hope to review it on Kitchlit before the end of the week.

The savoy cabbage and romanescu aren’t earmarked for anything yet, but I’m not worried. I might even get around to making Orangette‘s Savoy Cabbage Gratin, which has been on my mental “to-make” list since she posted it a year ago. With the cauliflower, I could make a soup and freeze it- that way we’ll have something to eat the day we get home.

That’s enough about me- what about you? Got anything yummy cooking this week?

    I picked up some Turks Turban Squash at the farm stand. I’m hoping they can decorate my home for a few weeks before I have to tear ‘em up and load them into my soup pot. They’re so pretty – like your pile of veggies. :)

    Maggie- I had to Google Turks Turban because I wasn’t sure what you were talking about ;) We have those here, but I guess I’d never bothered to find out what they were called before. Them’s some crazy-looking squashes- perfect for decorating with!
