FarmersMarketSnapshot

At the farmers market today I zeroed in on three seasonal items: dinosaur kale, kabocha squash, and sage! Cooking with these over the next week will be a great way to relive the taste of Thanksgiving!

Fiona Apple - TER Cover

This week, Fiona Apple penned a four-page, hand written letter explaining why she had to cancel the South American leg of her tour. Her 14-year-old pit bull, Janet, is making her transition and she needs to be there with her.

When I first heard about this letter, I rolled my eyes. I can be so judgmental (Ughhh!). But let’s rewind…

I feel strongly about honoring commitments and being a woman of my word. Personal responsibility and showing up for other people even when I don’t feel like it is important to me. I’m not a fan of self-indulgence because it feels selfish and narcissistic. Though I realize that I, of course, am guilty of these things, I always judge myself more harshly for it than I judge others. As a culture, we are very selfish and narcissistic, and I assumed that this letter was just another example of that. BUT I WAS SO WRONG.

TER - Pick of the week

While I was at the farmers market this past week I was chatting up one of the farmers who sold two types of persimmons. I found out that there is a “Hachiya” persimmon and a “Fuyu” persimmon. Apparently the Fuyu is perfectly in season now! I LOVE it! It tastes like Thanksgiving’s answer to an apple! Crunchy, sweet and slightly cinnamon-y!
