I hope you all had a great Christmas holiday if you celebrate. We had a sunny quiet day at home eating, watching movies, and hanging out. My sweet husband gave me a lovely vintage rose gold signet ring that I’ve been eyeing for a little while. Hope your holiday was nice and not too stressful either!
Cut into the cucumber from the CSA I mentioned a few posts back and half of it was hollow! It made me smile.
I love the CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) movement in LA. Californians are a little late to the game, as I know places in other parts of the world have been doing this for some time, but they are springing up all over the place now. Local farms contribute different things, so that the boxes are quite varied, and the produce is entirely seasonal. Our friends Craig and Kenny let us pick up (and eat) their box while they were out of town this weekend. It was full of peaches, carrots, tomatoes, corn, chilis, potatoes, cabbage, a watermelon, a head of lettuce, and more- and that was just the “small” box! Crazy. I am now looking for inventive recipes to use so that I don’t waste any of these farm-fresh goodies. For you LA locals, this is the co-op that my friends use. I couldn’t resist taking a photo.
I have always found it amusing when a bowl or glass is labeled for a specific item like “chips” or “whiskey”. I generally shy away from buying things with such labels because I feel restricted by my own desire to follow the label’s specifications to only use this bowl for chips or that glass for whiskey.
That being said, I still absolutely love these types of containers- mostly for the typography, whether it be goofy or tasteful.
