Baby Girl and I walked downtown on Tuesday to do a little shopping and stop in for a quickie at SAM. (That's the best thing about having a museum membership; you can break visits into little bites. So much easier to digest.)
Of course, post-SAM, we hit Taste for some of Elise Fineberg's wonderful goodies. I am a sucker for the warm cookies sidled up to a shot of milk. But I was so tempted to go for the apple pie with caramel sauce and candied bacon. Sweet! And salty, too. Still, after heated negotiations, Claire went way savory and ordered the mini burger and frites and I chose cookies. Oh, maybe next time there will be a candied bacon shortbread cookie?!
When we got home, there was a gray bin sitting by the gate, a delivery from Pioneer Organics. I've just started getting organic fruits and veggies delivered every other week and I love it so much. The quality has been outstanding and I've been experimenting with new raw ingredients. But, hey, I do not remember checking the box for kumquats. I have no clue what to do with these itty-bitty oranges. HELP!
