Max is back
Max is back! After five weeks in New Zealand and Australia. I headed off to the Greenmarket this morning at 7:00 am. Suprised that some stands were not up and running by as late as 8:15. But did manage to get glorious corn, which I knew Max would love, and fabulous tomatoes, the first apples of the season, perfect apricots, and some plums. Grilled eggplant and green peppers and chopped them up to make a nice spread. Boiled flat green beans and tossed them with my salted lemons, capers, and parsley.
Lots of greens: purslane, arugula, two kinds of lettuce, flat leaf parsley and dill. Will get chives and scallions. Otherwise, I'm set with carrots, radishes, cucumber, and summer squash. Oh, need potatoes and onions. Ate my down to the bare shelves of the fridge, so was pretty much out of everything.
Will make chłodnik and take it to Mark and Greta on Thursday.
