The Last of Summer and a Giveaway from The Experiment Publishing
On the last day of the Cannon Beach Farmers Market last year, I snapped up every vegetable I could, especially those that might keep a while. I wasn't really blogging at that point, and never posted them. So! You get to enjoy these fabulous veggies now. Above, clockwise from top left: green and red peppers, pattypan squash, cherry tomatoes, fingerling potatoes, and tiny white and purple Japanese eggplant.
Dinosaur kale, aka cavolo nero.
Chard and carrots. See the white one?
Red celery, celebration squash, fresh garlic, shallots, pumpkin, delicata, and pink banana. Incidentally, the CBFM is really cute, so if you're heading out to Oregon's north coast next summer, try to have it include a Tuesday. Be on the lookout for JP's hummus, which is sold in little pint containers, and head over to the Blue Scorcher book for yummy vegan sourdough or kalamata olive bread to eat alongside.
And now, a giveaway for November 2nd! Today's giveaway is brought to you by the generous folks over at The Experiment. I offer to you a copy of Alicia Simpson's second cookbook, Quick and Easy Vegan Celebrations!

Seitan parmesan and étouffée calling my name for sure! The book looks wonderful.
