Suzanne, the other PERPETUAL HUNGER! lady had clued me in to Stiles Farmer's Market (9th ave, just south of 42nd st. on the west side) earlier in the spring semester, but I never got the chance to make it up there.
Well, today I went. Gee: Best. Decision. Ever.
5 Lemons 1.00
5 Oranges 1.00
Hass Avocado 1.25
5 Garlic Bulbs 1.00
Sweet Potato .22
Grape Tomatoes 1.50
Portobello Mushroom .44
Grant total: 9.89
HOLY SHIT. AWESOME TIMES TWENTY!!!
Let's just say I headed over to D'agostino for that bunch. EASILY would have cost me over 20 bucks.
GO TO STILES IT IS AWESOME!! YOU NOW HAVE NO EXCUSE NOT TO EAT YOUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES!
The other PiCs are homemade tributes to enjoying those things that come from the earth/simple food. A platter of cucumbers, smoked salmon, cottage cheese (whole milk!), and grape tomatoes. This morning, these ingredients came of use again in a smoked salmon cucumber sandwich on 5 grain bread. And just now I sauteed my favorite leafy green ever : CHARD! and dressed it with just some lemon juice, salt, and two chopped hard boiled eggs.
