No lines necessary.

Yay! More than enough to go around. I can take the train up to NYC any time you say the word. It's not that far for some good eats.

Right now I feel like I would push a child out of my way for a cookie.

One day we'll have to find a way to have an actual meeting.
I have more cream than even I can use. I am going to whip some of it and practice quenelles. We aren't doing them on the desserts at work anymore, but if I can get them down, I can bring them back. I'm doing a little dessert special and I'd really like to have a beautiful quenelle of sorbet on the plate.

Ahem . . . I do believe someone said she was making a cherry pie.
Why then has there been no update on the cherry pie?!

There is no update on the pie because a certain child grabbed the entire bag of cherries and ate them all! That's what I get for showering...LOL

Oh my God, that is hilarious! And adorable. Don't you try to deny Wonder Woman her cherries!

Been having fun at work making ice creams, sorbets, and a bit of sherbet, too. Since I have to stick with our menu, that's the one area where I get to play. So far it's been toasted almond and cherry ice cream, sour cherry sorbet, the usual vanilla and mint ice creams we need, toasted coconut ice cream, white chocolate ice cream, mango-lime sorbet, raspberry-rose sorbet, and cherry buttermilk sherbet. I think the sherbet might be my fave. It's so refreshing!

I have a pic of a yeast-raised olive oil cake with white peaches and Shiro plums and rosemary that I will upload soon.

I have tomorrow off as the hostess decided she would rather work Monday than Tuesday. Not only is it busier on Tuesdays, but I swear she wanted the potential 3-day weekend. Labor Day weekend is the last Sunday we have off. We will also close Labor Day Monday. So there I was thrilled at the idea of a potential 3-day break since I had Tuesdays off. I was happy about the consecutive days in a row I would get with the switch to Monday and then it hit me that it would not be surprising if she calculated all of this and decided to switch. Sigh.

Ah well. Hopefully a stop at the market tomorrow at Union Square. I will miss the smaller, but so agreeable Tuesday market at St. Mark's Place. There is something so peaceful and friendly about that market in particular.

I took my first trip to the local farmer's market this weekend.

There wasn't anything really out of the ordinary.

But I am still happy with my purchases.

I can't wait for the picture of your pie Sairis!

Minxy, that's great! What did you get? We all wanna know!

So, a bunch of pics from the Union Square market that maybe you will enjoy.








This cutie was crying, so the Ronnybrook dairy lady gave her some chocolate milk. It did the trick.















Look, misspam!



















A few cucumbers and the tiniest little peppers!

OH....MY...GOD


Your farmer's market puts my farmer's market to shame.
I would have a field day if my market offered even a quarter of what yours does.

Heh, Monday's Union Square market is actually really small. You should see the craziness and selection on a Saturday!
I like smaller ones too. On Sundays Union Square isn't open, so I love the Tompkins Square market and one uptown. They're not terribly small, but not nearly the size of Union Square or Grand Army Plaza. And I love the Tuesday market at Saint Mark's Church so much!
We have a lot of markets, with Union Square being the largest and open four days a week year-round. Others are smaller and some are only open from late spring or summer to the end of the fall, one or two days a week.

OK...now I am just totally.......utterly.......jealous. What an awesome farmers market you have there. I made raspberry lemonade this weekend, the raspberries are luscious right now. Yours look pretty too. Blueberries and I'll take a few of those melons please.... ooh and the baby eggplant. and a bunch of flowers!

Wow, Sairis! I am completely floored by the variety of produce at your farmers market! Makes my local Virginia market look close to pitiful.

I love the white raspberries, peaches, blueberries, all the beans and green eggplant(?), is that the purple or red garlic? What are those tiny purple peppers? Did you make the Olive Oil Cake?

God, I'm just drooling here, and I already ate my dinner. Yummy! Thanks, Sairis!

That was just spring garlic. I think I saw Rocambole variety while I was there as well, though.
I made these tonight:



Fried green tomatoes with paprika aioli. The last place I worked made these during the summer and they were my crack! When I saw the green tomatoes today, I knew what I wanted. I made some breaded like we did at the restaurant, which is my preferred method, and some cornmeal dusted, which are also tasty. Sooo good. Of course, now I have extra paprika aioli. Maybe with some of those new potatoes. Yum!

Misspam, there were all kinds of beans. Favas and baby favas, limas, all the long beans, haricots verts, cranberry beans, and I think a few others.
The plum selection was great, too.
I had not seen green eggplant before.
I bought a bunch of those baby artichokes and gasped at the sight of fennel, which is a rare find.

I did make the olive oil cake a couple of days ago.

The small peppers I didn't find out if they were hot or not. A woman was asking, but I couldn't hear. I will have to find out. I managed to resist peppers, but not the tomatoes!

Hey Misspam, where in VA are you? I'm newly (as of this Jan) in Loudoun county.

I was really excited when I learned my town had a farmer's market, but then totally disappointed when I realized how tiny it was compared to the ones in NYC. It's nice and all, but very expensive and very sparse in terms of variety.

Your photos are amazing Sairis. I'm Very jealous!
