Green tomato and crab po’boy

Some foods are as beautiful as they are delicious: perfect strawberries, a golden roast chicken, fresh green spears of asparagus.

Some foods make up in taste for what they lack in looks… such as this fried green tomato and Dungeness crab po’boy that I picked up from Where Ya At Matt at the Queen Anne Farmers Market this evening. Matt handed it to me tightly wrapped in paper, then we carefully carried it the several blocks from the farmers market to home. By the time I unwrapped the sandwich, its crispy fried tomatoes (not nearly green enough for my taste) had softened somewhat, and the dressing on the crab was soaking into the soft bun, but it was still quite a treat.

Local Roots CSA Week 10

A couple of years ago, I documented each week’s produce from our CSA with Local Roots Farm. This year, I’ve been a slacker. It’s week 10 of the CSA, and I’m taking my first photo of the vegetabliciousness that arrived on our front porch today. This week’s box contained:

  • Bunch of carrots (Yay!)
  • Couple of leeks
  • Bunch of rainbow chard
  • Bag of mixed salad greens
  • Purple “green” beans
  • Bunch of parsley
  • Red potatoes
  • One long cucumber
  • One large zucchini

I see some yummy vegetable trimmings in our chickens’ futures this week!
