There is a farmer's market happening somewhere in NYC everyday of the week. I stopped by Tucker Square this week and found a surprising array of fruits, veggies, breads, and cheeses. Walking around Manhattan with a tote bag stuffed with spring onions, patty pan squash, lettuce, tomato, and baguette bread made me feel like a genuine resident.
Back at Jessica's apartment, I assembled a salad. Lately I'm loving combining warm and cold ingredients in salad. Here we have some sauteed patty pan squash and spring onion on a bed of lettuce. That's it, no need for a recipe, or even dressing if you season with salt and pepper. The salad and I walked to Central Park to enjoy some sunshine and people watching. There were a number of underwear clad sunbathers, dogs in shoes, and little turtles.
New York highlights so far: cocktails on the rooftop at the Met, a ballet at Lincoln Center, and Indian food in a deliciously cramped box car lined with millions of Christmas lights.
Happy Sustainable Sunday!
