Week of Produce

Saturday July 25th, I had a great day at Elizabeth City’s Downtown Waterfront Market. I acquired a bounty of fresh, healthy produce and carried it back to my home on Hunter Street. I was feeling pretty darn pleased with myself. I was going to ingest all these delicious nutrients and I was supporting local growers at the same time.

It wasn’t until I plopped my purchases onto the kitchen counter that I realized, “Huh. We have six days to eat all this before we leave for the beach.”

And that we did. In the past week, the following items were ingested:

Chunky Vegetable Chili
1 onion
2 green peppers
1 starship squash

Eggplant Parmesan
1 eggplant
1 bunch of scallions

Tomato Caprese
3 tomatoes
fresh basil
fresh oregano

5 peaches
5 bananas
1 tub blueberries
1 nectarine

Fresh Carrot Apple Juice
2 pounds carrots
2 apples

Side Dishes
6 ears of corn
1 batch of asparagus

Blackberry Cobbler
1 tub blackberries

Of course, we did have some help from the neighborhood kids… They assisted with the eating and the prep!

It was such a delicious and fulfilling week. Perhaps I should start off every week with what seems to be “too much produce”.
