Happy Dad day to all you fathers, uncles, gramps, mentors and big brothers out there. The kids made Tom cards, and we brought him coffee and the paper in bed. Then, he took a long bike ride while the boys and I went to the farmers market. Summer is definitely in swing, and the produce is a feast for the eyes. I bought a flat of strawberries and a huge bag of rhubarb, some broccolini, pattypan and regular summer squash, wax beans, sugar snap peas and a gorgeous bunch of chioggia beets. Also, because my NM friend, Laura, has written often about Lambs Quarters but I've never seen them out here, I was psyched to see and immediately bought a bunch this morning. See below!
Yesterday, I bought pluots and black velvet apricots. If you haven't already inferred, I have major plans to make lots o jam this week!
I also made a batch of Grilled Pizza Dough a la Peter Reinhart, and damnation is the coconut cream pie magnificent.
