Farm Box: It Was Bound To Happen Eventually…

farmbox 5.9.13

Eggplant in the farm box. So gross. How is it that a vegetable that is so easy on the eyes is so yucky on the tongue? Luckily I was able to pawn the eggplant off on some poor sap who actually thinks her, “husband makes the best stuffed eggplant on the planet.”

But I can’t be that judgmental. I’m sure the fungus-hating guy who gave me his mushrooms thinks I’m equally soft-headed.

This week’s farm box contains: 29 white button mushrooms, 3 young red onions, 3 Navel oranges, 9 Pixie tangerines, 1 bunch of arugala, 1 bunch of white chard, 1 bunch of red chard, 2 broccoli trees, and NO EGGPLANT.

    Count me in amongst the saps who love some eggplant. I never met an eggplant I didn’t like. Years ago there was an Italian restaurant we used to go to and it got to where whenever we showed up the owner would come out and usher us in with a big Italian flourish of his arms and say “Ahh! The eggplant queen has arrived!”

    That’s how much I love the eggplant. : )
