Lets be clear: the veg is leafy, the croissants are flaky. No, they might not be the healthiest breakfast in the world, but sometimes you just cant resist their buttery goodness. Or maybe I was just too lazy to make breakfast yesterday.
Luckily, I wasnt too lazy to head to the farmers market. I dont need a lot of food this week (were heading to North America on Friday), so Im slightly worried Ive overdone it here. The corn is the only vegetable Ive got a firm plan for- Ive got a tasty twist on Succotash in mind. Im not yet sure which beans, herbs and add-ins Ill use, but watch this space.
For that gorgeous chard, Im not sure I need something quite as rich as Danas wonderful-looking Chart Tart. But I do love the combination of chard and eggs, so perhaps an omelette is in order?
After I brought this bushel home and snapped its photo, Andrew and I headed into town for a little pre-holiday shopping. He picked up some clothing and a few books, and I nabbed myself the new Nigella Lawson book (apparently, a day before its UK publication?). In true Nigella tradition, this one is bursting with gorgeous treats and desserts, as well as a lot of meaty recipes which Ill pretend I dont see. I probably wont have time to share any of it with you until I return from holiday, but get ready.
