October 5: Yum.
These were the goods at our local Romanian produce stand this afternoon — peaches, pears, grapes, apples, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, corn, potatoes, onions, cabbage, peppers, and even some strange new ones that I’m just learning to cook with, like parsley root. What a bounty! Everyone says to take advantage of it now, while there’s plenty to choose from. Come winter, fresh, cheap produce will be hard to come by, unlike in the States where you can get just about anything at any time from anywhere in the world … I don’t even want to think about the carbon footprint that causes! Instead, I’ll focus on the sheer yumminess of a local harvest and savor it while I can.
