I love the thread de-railing, ruralcurls.

Yesterday I bought a chicken from Garden of Spices Farm on my way to work. I stashed it in the staff fridge for the night and forgot to take it with me at the end of the night!
I am going to drop by work early to bring it home as I fear for the safety of my chicken. Sleep deprivation be damned.

So sorry for derailing. Thought I scared you and ninja away.

Ooh, chicken. I usually do roast chicken once a week.

I'm planning to roast it on Sunday. I will visit the Jackson Heights market for the first time to see what I'll serve it with. I love roast chicken!

Made the peas yesterday; forgot about that icky string-thing. Should I have de-strung first?

Also picked up some organic cream today, so creamed corn for the weekend.

I got my coconut sugar today and I'm sitting here at work trying not to scarf down the whole bag! It is so delish. I hope there's enough left to work on my recipe. : )

Yes. You want to take those off, bring a pot of water to a boil, salt it so it tastes like the ocean, and cook your peas until tender-crisp. Toss with a few drops of the roasted oil and some toasted seeds.

Jeep, it makes a great cake, too. Like a brown sugar cake, but more complex. Great coconut cake!

I bought a bag of them, and nuked them like the bag said to. They were great with the sesame seeds and oil, but that string made me gag, until I started eating around it.

I have some left; I'll remove the string mess before heating.

I am nervous about the corn.

Oh, I see. The directions I gave are for fresh snap peas. I'm surprised that they wouldn't be cleaned if they're packaged.

I made a really yummy all veggie meal last night with my CSA share, so I'm going to share (even though I'm not Saria!) I meant to take pictures.. but it looked so delicious that I forgot. Anyway, I sauteed a small onion and one chopped garlic scape in olive oil; then I added in a whole bunch of freshly torn kale and maybe 3/4 cup of broth, stirred it up and put a lid on it for 15-20mins to steam. Then I added a can of diced tomatoes, a can of rinsed/drained cannelini beans and let it simmer together for a few mins to warm through those. I served it all over whole grain rotini and sprinkled the top of each bowl with sunflower seeds and grated parmesan. It was SO good.

They were all I could find locally.

Sydney, that sounds delicious and I love that you shared!
CSA offerings sound really good, too. I hope you keep updating us on your creations.
BTW, you never told me about those purses!

I thought I did...I'm going to have to find them again. I'll look when I get home tonight.

Unrelated note: I ordered my wedding dress from etsy and it is on its way TODAY. Eeep!

Whee! You haven't posted it, have you? I'd love to see it, if you don't mind.

Hee, thanks. It feels very 1920s to me, which I LOVE. And, it's made of 100% bamboo!

Ooh, pretty! And very retro. I also thought 1920s when I saw. Can't wait to see you in it!

I did. I made it with spaghetti with garlic scapes, green olives, and mint. And a salad of mixed lettuces and purslane.
I pat them dry and salt them really well, overnight or at least 30 minutes ahead of time. Leave them at room temp for a half hour or so. Get the oven going at 500 degrees. Roast until done (165 at the thigh). You can use herbs, spices, etc, but I wanted just a plain roast chicken with salt and pepper. I hit it with espelette pepper when I took it out.
This will smoke the hell out of your kitchen (roommate opened the door and the landlady who lives next door *****ed that I clearly took out the smoke detector--- idiot roommate). But it produces crispy skin and moist meat.
