Hello Monday. I’ve lost my voice, had laryngitis the past few days. Perhaps that’s no excuse for my fingers not to have done some talking, or walking, though. I really did intend to stick to my new schedule, but alas I missed Friday’s deadline. A couple notes from the last few days. First, a weirdo muffin I made yesterday. While quite lovely in its banana-apple-almond-vanilla-cinnamon flavors, it’s definitely a bit odd in its crunchiness. Note: has anyone ever successfully ground quinoa in a food processor? More on this to follow.
I was thrilled to see the return of Full Nettle Jack cheese at the Cherry Grove Farm stand at the farmers’ market yesterday. Those little dark specks are nettles in the cheese! Grassy bright flavor. Yellow and green. Delightful.
