The Share

Today was one of those truly “one-step-forward-two-steps-back” parenting days. I got drawer organizers and managed to make my bathroom look like this:

And during the span of time that it took me to accomplish this remarkable feat of organization, my kids made my kitchen look like this:

“It’s snowing!”

Yes, that’s styrofoam. Makes me wish that we still had a shop vac. Notice how the static electricity ensures that the little beads stick to the cabinets? Nice.

In other food-related news, we continue to get ginormous vegetables.  Honestly, I can’t even figure this one out. Back in Indiana at the farmer’s market, we used to get pattypan squash in strawberry baskets, like 5 or 6 to a basket. They were delicious, and I used to batter them and fry them up. This week, we all got at least one of these:

I’m continuing with the very popular food-on-my-head theme, just to demonstrate the jaw-droppingly giant size of this guy. This is the larger of the two.

The Haul:
Lettuce x3 (I immediately gave one of my lettuces away, as three giant heads of lettuce is two more than I really need)
Chard
Arugula (a smallish bunch)
Basil
Parsley
Beets
Turnips
Leek
Squash (2 pattypan and two yellow)
A bag of assorted tomatoes and a few apricots
Snapdragons

The Plan:
Grill the romaine
Chocolate zucchini bread
Squash Galette
Leek Bread Pudding (al la Ad Hoc at home)
Pesto
Some sort of enchilada lasagna dealio with the chard and turnips
