There’s always one monstrous vegetable that the guy doling out the produce for our CSA box is trying to get rid of. I always politely pass it up because a) I would have to figure out what to do with 5 pounds of x and b) there is no way that we would be able to consume 5 pounds of x in one week. So, you can imagine my joy when I discovered that the biggest zucchini/squash that I have ever seen in my life was sitting on my kitchen counter. This is what happens when my boyfriend goes to pick up the CSA box.
My collection of kitchen toys seems to have exploded over the past couple of months. I have definitely downgraded in terms of my kitchen itself since we moved to Calgary but I guess that being in the kitchen, experimenting with new tools and products makes me happy. I find myself buying things that ‘I’ve always wanted’ but also always thought was either a little excessive or something we should hold off on getting until we finally settle down. All of that’s gone out the window. Since we moved here, I have acquired a small food processor, juicer and last but not least, an ice cream maker!
