I'll start the ball rolling with the fingerling potatoes I bought at Tompkins Square yesterday. I am very bad at remembering the names of stalls, but there are only half a dozen or so here (open Sund

They make Hooligan (full stop) which some might call stinky. And mean that as a compliment.

Nice to see you here, Paul.

Yeah, but the stuff in the middle of winter just doesn't have enough flavor imo, roots or no roots. Who'da thunk cilantro had seasons?

 

The stuff I got a week ago from Migliorelli wasn't quite there yet, but it was sure better--even rootless--than what's been available in stores.

Not the Green Market but close. Last Friday purchased 12 soft shell crabs (large size) for $18.99!!!!!!! at the Asian market on Fort Hamilton Parkway. (Yes, they were alive.) Very tasty as well - created a Mediterranean recipe for them with red orange segments, coarsley chopped black olives and basil chiffonade.

I hate it when you think they're not alive, then one of them starts kicking.

 

Big problem for me with a vegan in the house; trying to distract their attention while I chop off a living creature's face.

 

I paid far more than that at Union Market.

I had one that wouldn't die - made the cut 1/2-inch behind the eyes, cut out the lung flap and the thing kept moving its legs for a minute or so more - very scary. Made sure I served that one to Peggy.

Oooh, magret with rhubarb sauce! You can do that!! But what wine to go with?

 

We too have an abundance of vegetables: golden beets with fabulous greens; baby bok choy, asparagus, and zucchini, which I don't normally love but had to buy because it's not kale.

 

And scallops and tuna steaks. A smallish chicken to cook in the rotisserie (salting as we speak). Ground turkey + turkey sausage, for meatballs (which I already mixed up and will cook off maybe tomorrow).
