Sustainable Sunday: Picnic in Central Park

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!


  1. That looks like such a lovely day! I wish every day started with a farmer's market.

  2. Did New Yorkers really sunbathe in their underwear? It sounds like you are having an awesome time - I love seeing you figure out how to apply your cooking principles into an entirely new place - miss you!!!!

  3. I love combining hot and cold in a salad, too! Lovely pictures :)

  4. I'm totally digging mixing warm and cold ingredients in salads right now. I'm doing it with pasta salads as well. I love the idea of using squash. I'd steared clear of it lately but this makes me want to try it ASAP. I can't wait to catch up on everything else you've been doing!
