Nothing like…

A crisp apple. I recently started eating Ginger Gold Apples.  They are slightly tart, very crispy, and just sweet enough.  Perfection. I buy them at the Honest Weight Co-op.  That place and the Troy Farmers’ Market really opened a whole new world of apples to me. I grew up eating Red Delicious and all of the other standard varieties at the grocery store.  But then at the Troy Farmers’ Market, I had a honey crisp.  Oh my, was that delicious.  And then I recently had a Cameo apple (again at the co-op), which almost tasted like a pear.  I’m open to suggestions on some great apples out there.  A caveat, I’m really not a big fan of Granny Smiths.  Keep them coming please.

Also, I just had to share this picture of the really sweet, couldn’t stop eating them heirloom tomatoes from our garden.  They were a mixture of Green Zebra, Cherokee Purple, and Striped German, all of the starter plants were from the Farm at Miller’s Crossing.   J used this recipe, Heirloom Tomato Salad, at Epicurious.com.  Really freaking good.

The onion on the left is from our garden.  Positively huge isn’t it?

Actually we have been happily munching on the incredibly flavorful heirloom tomatoes and kale this week from our garden.
