30 minute Sprint—Farmer’s Market to my Table

by Native Foods Cafe



8 am Saturday morning:   Rush through my workout, thinking about all those wonderful veggies/fruits NOT in my re-cyclable Native Foods Cafe bags…

8:30    Forget the shower—I want tomatoes, something pickled, black Italian plums

8:45  Out the door with my daughter—hey, she's great at carrying bags and I bribe fresh Apple Cider

8:50 Lincoln Park Green City Market, Chicago—-heaven

8:51   What is this?   What can I do with it?

Apparently, just peel it and slice it think and squeeze lime I am told.   According to Wiki:  Kohlrabi (German turnip) (Brassica oleracea Gongylodes group) (Olkopi in Assamese and Bengali) is a perennial vegetable, and is a low, stout cultivar of cabbage. Kohlrabi can be eaten raw as well as cooked.

8:53   Who can pass on perfectly pickled beets, sauerkraut and the season's last heirlooms?

  1. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share. Cheers!

    Erectile dysfunction can occur suddenly or gradually. Some men slowly lose the firmness of their erections or how long the erections last. In other men, especially those whose impotence is largely caused by psychological factors, the problem may occur unpredictably and can improve at any time. Despite their difficulties with erections, men with impotence often continue to have normal orgasm and ejaculation.
