and mixed it all together.
It’s not bad, although I think (I’m just exploring coleslaw, I used to think I hated it) that I prefer a more watery dressing and less of a mayo-y one – although I do love mayo.
I also cooked up some chocolate chip cookies (most to send to an acquaintance who’s sick), which are mostly decidedly not local, except for the egg and possibly the butter and definitely the flour, which is local and organic and from the Green Barn Market. I was a little worried the cookies would be too dry, as this flour is “all-purpose” but definitely on the whole wheat side of the spectrum, but they seem just fine. In fact, they’re so fine, I need to hide them.
Also, this weekend I put a bunch of my seedlings in pots, finally. Only now has it been warm enough that I don’t have to bring the tomatoes in at night, although even so some of the leaves are still looking purplish. But the anticipation of home-grown fresh tomatoes is building…
And I made it to Karma today to pick up a few things. The haul: maple syrup (they sell it in bulk, much cheaper than you pay elsewhere), rapini, fiddleheads, lettuce, spinach – all local. Well, and some protein powder. You can’t win them all.
