Reiko Fujibayashi - April 23, 2014
April’s flyin’ by, which means more and more exciting produce discoveries.
Feeling grateful today, for all the hard graft that goes into getting such beautiful stuff on our plates!
From the growers, to the purchasers, warehouse workers, drivers, retailers, chefs and everyone along the way…so much work!
What an honor it is to play a small part in it; lately I can’t even look at a salad without thinking about it.
(So, eating takes forever…though it’s always good to slow down!)
Check these Fresh Picks!
Time to eat your greens!
Rainbow Table Carrots from Lakeside!
I don’t know about you, but I think purple carrots are the cat’s pyjamas.
(Like, I really, really like them. I would never dress a cat, however.)
Origino Tomatoes on the Vine!
From Delta, these tomatoes are something special.
Red Bartlett Pears from Earthbound.
I can’t get over them.
Lovely and luscious, and everything you would want in a pear!
Snow Peas from Del Cabo!
Fresh and crisp, the perfect compliment to any Spring meal.
Murcott Tangerines from Tule!
You need to snaffle these up while you can.
Easy to peel, and taste out of this world.
(And look at that glow!)
And lastly, Blueberries, 12x6 oz from Devine!
(We’ve got 4.4oz too!)
Dark purpley-blue, and deeply delicious.
Well, that’s what we found this week, give us a holler, okay?
We’d love to talk to you!
