Batard of white bread, carrot cake cupcake, hazelnut chocolate bearclaw, 1 lb parsnips, ~3lb sweet potato, 1 lb of potato, honeycrisp apple, bosc pears, a batard of white bread, and 1/2 lb of baby ginger.
The sweet potatoes are for the sweet potato pie recipe from Roots: The Definitive Compendium
for the Hallloween party Wednesday at work; I have no idea if that'll come off, considering the storm that is barrelling towards us, but if not, I can always eat it myself as it won't require further cooking. The ginger is for the ginger ale recipe from the same book -- ellen_fremedon
and I are hosting Thanksgiving together, and I'm definitely doing a soft drink tasting menu. Right now, it's raspberry shrub, homemade ginger, hibiscus agua fresca -- I'm planing to get Fix the Pumps and the soda starter kit
from the Art of Drink and bring at least one lactart and one phosphate as well.
I also dumped all the tomato and pepper plants in containers this morning, and brought in all of my pots so that they won't become hazards during the storm. I harvested everything that was at usable size on the plants in the ground, so I have two eggplants, several poblano peppers, a few sweet peppers, a tomato, handful of green beans, and one lone pod from the borlotto beans. I'll make baba ganoush today, and have something edible even if the power goes out for an extended period.
I might hit the grocery after work tomorrow and pick up some granola bars -- they're not super tasty, so I won't be tempted to eat them as snacks, and they are fine without refridgeration -- as back-up rations if the power goes out for a few days.
