Back from Chinatown

Scored in Chinatown: mangos (nice and hard, for salad, with corn), lotus root, yard beans, starfruit, edamame, jicama, szechwan peppers (they were banned for a while), daikon, watercress, scallions, lemons and limes. I'm thinking now to make the meringues with pinenuts and lavender. Oh, and flat of eggs for the Chinese tea eggs: 2 1/2 dozen small eggs for $1.80. Can't beat Chinatown!
Pomelos, beautiful pomelos, everywhere, a special kind with the stem still attached. Chinatown was thronging. It is the moon festival season and moon cakes were everywhere and people were out shopping in droves. Also got my favorite Malaysian peanuts, those teeny nuts, in the shell, nice and hard and crisp, to have with drinks.
