In the Kitchen

My day was spent mostly in the kitchen, partly thanks to my trip to the Sunday Bazaar. I just found too many things that I needed thought looked good and couldn't leave without.

2 kilos of zucchini for baby food, stir-fry, zucchini bread, pasta primavera, and minestrone soup.

200 grams of walnuts for granola bars, oatmeal, and zucchini bread.

1/2 kilo of spinach for minestrone soup. And something be determined.

3 kilos of pumpkin for baby food, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, and maybe an attempt at homemade pumpkin-spice coffee creamer.

1/2 kilo of green beans for minestrone soup, stir-fry, and pasta primavera.

1/2 kilo of plums.

A kilo of onions. For everything.

A kilo of mandarins. (Yup, mandarins. I thought they were limes too at first glance).

A kilo of potatoes for minestrone soup, baked potatoes, and mashed potatoes.

A kilo of grapes.

200 grams of cranberries for granola bars, oatmeal, and snacking.

A kilo of carrots for minestrone soup, stir-fry, pasta primavera, and maybe a first-time attempt at carrot soup.

1/2 kilo of pole beans for baby food.

A kilo of apples for muffins and applesauce.

1/2 kilo of broccoli for stir-fry, pasta primavera, and maybe with baked potatoes or fettuccine alfredo.

200 grams of almonds for snacking on.

Not a bad haul for $30, huh?


  1. Oh yummy! Looks like you are going to be busy!

  2. Those mandarins really do look like limes. Just the other day I was in New Orleans visiting my sister and they had a "lime" tree in the back yard. We attempted to make key lime pie, didn't work out so well. We found out after further investigation that her so called lime tree was a orange tree. So we had orange pie, it wasn't too bad. WOW!
