Grape kiwis, strawberry cake on the horizon

I saw these at last week's farmers market but neglected to buy some. Not so today! Grape kiwis! They are absolutely delicious, grow on a vigorous grape-like vine, and are a native-to-China member of the Kiwi family. I also bought many pounds of beautiful, assorted apples, one last quart of Italian plums and some chard. Having definitely overbought last Sunday, I kept the purchases small and concentrated this week. Tom's leaving town today and won't be back until Thursday- there are only so many veggies I can eat.

This evening, I'll be baking a strawberry cake and tomorrow morning a red chile cornbread, both for a catering pick-up tomorrow. Super fun!
