Gah, today was just a perfect Sunday: farmer’s market, a stroll around town and some cooking planned for later. I needed a jar of honey from the market, but everything was looking appealing today despite arriving later than usual. This is how I ended up with over four pounds of various squash and zucchini to roast for three people.
Somehow, J has managed to never have eaten a fresh apricot. What?! So, we had to buy some, especially since we are in apricot country now. These were perfectly ripe and juicy. My great grandmother used to drink apricot nectar with her breakfast. The taste of these brought back those weekend memories when she would let me have a sip. As a child, I was fairly sure her breakfast choice was the height of sophistication. It was nectar not juice after all.
I still can’t get over the fact that there is jasmine blooming everywhere right now. I just love how the scent is so heavy in the air that I often smell it before I see the cascades of little white flowers. Sometimes it is so nice to just make time to do not too much. Although, I have cooking plans tonight. I am making a dairy free version of this recipe for baked sole. I am sure I will write about it eventually. Maybe, I will even break my addiction to iPhone photos and bust out the real camera. (Probably not, the iPhone addiction is strong and my desire for a return to better photos is weak. Sorry.)
