Today I got out of the Farmers' Market for $69:
2 organic navel oranges - 2 organic lemons - 1lb organic Straus butter - 1 squoodgy Buffalo mozzarella - a large bunch of basil - 2 gleaming organic little gems - a bunch of beautiful dirty organic radishes - an organic cauliflower - a bunch of organic leeks - handfuls of favas - sturdy stalks of rhubarb - organic King trumpet mushrooms - half a pound of grass fed beef skirt steak - an avocado - a pain epi - two croissants - three punnets brimming with Swanton's wonderful strawberries.
Things left over from last week I can add to the mix:
milk - cream - eggs - celery - onions - carrot - shallots - cheese - guanciale
what I am, perhaps, thinking about:
stewed rhubarb and strawberries - orange caramel strawberries - classic ragu and homemade taglietelle - simple salad with French-style vinaigrette - Paul Bertolli's cauliflower soup - roasted mushrooms with mozzarella and basil - favas roasted whole in their pods.
I don't know about you, but I do this every Saturday - you know - make up all sorts of ambitious, delicious-sounding plans for the produce I've just bought. It never seems to turn out quite how I imagine though. I wonder how many of this week's ideas will actually end up on my dinner plate?
Either way, I think I need a nap before I get to work in the kitchen...
