Ok folks! Here goes our attempt at posting blogs more frequently!
Some of you may remember that I receive a box of goodies once a week from a farmer up in Massachusetts. Â I have found that it’s a great way for my kids to experience new veggies and understand the farming cycling. Â It’s always a surprise to see what we get! Â The deliveries for this season started the first week of June and so far we have gotten some wonderful items – zucchini blossoms, organic cheeses, miso tamari, beautiful swiss chard in a rainbow of colors, chinese cabbage, lots of mint, thyme and cilantro, baby garlic, two kinds of radishes and some green stuff that I’m not even sure what it is! Â Waiting to see what the rest of the summer brings!
Last week the Good Farmer also included a bag of dried organic red kidney beans. Â Since I am not going to India this summer (re: recent pretzel post – baby!) I thought I would try and brush up on some of my Indian recipes. Â So I made some rajma (red kidney bean curry) and it came out delish! Â So delish that I had to send Farmer Totman a picture of the pot full of beans. Â He asked me to do a little write up for his blog so I’m going to cheat a little here and justÂ linkÂ (right there) to his blog, ok?
