It was a good Saturday. I got up early and rode down to the Green City Farmers Market. Got some quality dog watching in. Bought some strawberries, one tomato (hey, soon enough I hope to have so many of my own from my garden that I won’t know what to do), and some parsley.
Stopped at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s on my way back home, then went to Edgewater to check on my garden. WOOHOO. I hadn’t…
I have a truly ridiculous amount of minestrone made. I had to transfer some to another pot while cooking completed. Once it had simmered away and I’d eaten a serving, I could put it back into one pot. THE FIVE QUART EMERIL LEGASSE POT.
(Minestrone made in an attempt to use up as much of the swiss chard I got after tearing down my garden for the year. I also have a lot of herbage drying: sage, oregano, lavender, lemon verbena, rosemary, parsley.)
