But I'm feeling great today thanks to some lovely pharmaceuticals. My old migraine medicine (which I used to be afraid to leave the house without) is dead to me. Dead! I was so eager to take the new stuff this morning that I tried to put it in my mouth while it was still in the foil pack.
My internal dialogue: Hey, I'm poking myself in the mouth with sharp plastic. That can't be right.
So I'm just back from my very first CSA pickup and I'm squee-ing all over the kitchen. If you don't know, CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A bunch of people pay a bunch of money in the spring, the farmer uses the money to buy seeds and when the seeds have turned into food, the people get a bunch of fresh vegetables one a week for 20 weeks. You can also get fruit and eggs and so on if you go for those options. You have no idea what you'll get every week, but it's economical and convenient.
So here's my haul:
Yellow squashes, a cucumber, green beans, tomatoes, curly kale, spring onions, beets basil and lettuce.
I realize that you care very little about my veggies, but there are a few things of interest in the photo that may amuse you. From left to right:
- Recipe hanging from a skirt hanger hanging from hook on the cabinet door. The recipe is for cinnamon cake in a mug, which is a moderately effective treatment for my migraines in a way that eating straight sugar is not.
- Turquoise and brown cocoa tin holding cooking utensils. We bought it on our honeymoon and it keeps the drawers from getting too cluttered.
- Mesh vegetable basket shaped like a pumpkin.
- Cheerios--the one processed food you'll have to pry from my cold, dead hands.
- The glass thing with a black cover--it's a microwave popcorn popper that has rocked my world. It's on the counter waiting to be cleaned because I refuse to let it hang out in the sink waiting to be cleaned where it could be chipped or cracked (rendering it unsafe for the microwave) so it gets forgotten and then washed before each use instead of after, which works.
