Haven’t been to the grocery store in at least 2 weeks, as a result, I’m making my way through some dry goods that I’ve probably packed and moved more than once. For example, a bag of red lentils that I think I’ve had longer than Adam and I have been dating–which is longer than a lot of celebrity marriages.
Have a lot of root vegetables from our last CSA delivery of the season (a bittersweet day–no more fun squashes that just show up every week, but also no more lettuce unless I want it). So, these include turnip, purple carrot and rutabaga. Which is something I’m not sure I ever thought I would eat.
As I learned this evening, search results for “carrot recipe” are at least 66% carrot cake, and I am weak.
Didn’t get much else done today, other than re-potting some of my herbs for a winter window herb garden, then trimming and freezing the rest in advance of the hurricane possibly killing anything left outside. Thanks Sandy, I’d been meaning to do this anyway.
I may have gone overboard when I put all the patio furniture downstairs, but we lived in Tampa when I was a kid. And my only vivid memory of hurricane damage is that one blew over our picnic table once. Better safe than sorry.
