My kitchen has never looked so good to me as Saturday when I got home.
What looked even better was Bloomingfood’s when I went grocery shopping Saturday night. You know, the great thing about stores like B-foods as compared to normal grocery stores is that produce that wouldn’t normally go on sale are reduced every time there’s a surplus. So, what did I get this time that I can’t normally afford at Marsh? parsnips. I freaking love parsnips. I also got more celery root (new addiction).
– .61 lbs organic celery root: $1.21 (1.99/lb)
-1.49 lbs organic parsnips: $2.52 ($1.69/lb)
-2.55 lbs organic bananas: $2.52 ($0.99/lb)
-2.99 lbs organic rolled oats: $2.96 ($0.99/lb)
-organic kale: $1.89
–2 x organic frozen edamame: $3.98
–5 x Chobani yogurt: $5.45 ($1.09/each)
-2 x organic canned black beans: $2.78 ($1.39 each)
-1 dozen all nautral corn tortillas: $0.59
–.13 lbs organic garlic: $0.78 ($5.99/lb)
Total Price: $24.88
So, what else have I been up to? Well, the day that I got home I ate 4 bowls of cereal, 1 bowl of oatmeal, and I made barley/red lentils with roasted celery root, turnip, potatoes, and red onion. Why did I eat so much cereal? For some reason I was craving it like crazy.
Hmm, what else? Yesterday I made rice with roasted vegetables and smoked clams in rosewood oil. Nothing too exciting. Here’s a picture of all the colorful veggies I had lying around in the fridge: (carrots, parsnips, turnip, potato, red onion):
What else? Oh!! Here’s a new recipe. Tonight I was craving quesadillas but didn’t have any cheese so I thought egg might be a good substitute. It didn’t quite have the effect I was looking for but it was really, really good.
Here’s what I had to work with: corn tortillas, kale, a potato, red onion, tomatoes that I froze before I left for Orlando, and eggs.
-finely chop potato, 1/10 a large red onion, and a leaf of kale
-sautee in olive oil, add a couple quarters of tomato
-when the vegetables are ready, add two eggs into the pan; scramble
-scoop vegetable/egg mixture onto a corn tortilla, add extra tomatoes, cover with another corn tortilla, and heat in the skillet until warm; flip if you can and heat for a minute or so on the other side
Total Price (2 quesadillas): $1.51
-2 eggs: $0.50
-4 tortillas: $0.20
-1/10 red onion: $0.10
-1 potato: $0.15
-1 leaf of kale: $0.20
-1 tomato: $0.36
