Big sigh, the weekend is here

Well, friends, it's finally Friday. It's been quite a week, hasn't it? Lots of crazy things happening in the news, fall weather making its first appearance, me RESISTING going to the Farmer's Market ALL WEEK.

The reason I haven't bought any veggies this week is twofold: I bought some at the SoWa market on Sunday, and I'm not going to be around this weekend. I'll be going up to Maine tonight with an old friend to hang out with my mom and enjoy the many outlet shops of Freeport. We're trying a new restaurant in Westbrook on Saturday night, so there won't be quite the same level of feasting as my last trip to Maine, but I'm sure I'll have plenty to share next week.

Until then, please enjoy this pictures of the most bizarre of the family Brassicaceae, the Romanesco. Some people call it cauliflower, some people call it broccoli, everyone agrees it's fractal and awesome. If you're in the northeast, try to stay dry this weekend. It's going to be very good soup weather! Have a good weekend, everyone.


  1. fractal? yowza, quite a word to describe a veggie my dear, quite a word! Did you find that in a crossword puzzle clue? See you later, lasagna is in the oven!

  2. I hope you have a great trip this weekend! Can't wait to see pictures! PS I wish my mom commented on my blog. :)

  3. I have seen that around but I have yet to try it. It certainly looks really interesting.
