Sunday Shopping

There was mist in the valleys on the way to the Hollywood Farmers Market this morning. The overcast skies made it feel autumn-y, even though there was no chill in the air.

This is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, so I bought a beautiful pumpkin at T and D Farms that I will stuff with mushrooms and barley and serve as the main dish at tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner. I also bought apples for pie and a variety of greens because they were so beautiful.

Here's what we brought home with us this morning:
6 jalapeƱos, 4 ears of corn, 1 zucchini, 1 red butter lettuce, 8 small sweet-tart apples whose name I don't remember, red grapes, assorted cherry tomatoes, 4 sweeties (a kind of apple), 2 tomatoes, 1 red oak leaf lettuce, rainbow chard, purple mustard greens, 1 pumpkin, 3 onions, ginger root, 3/4 lb assorted mushrooms (shiitake, cremini, oyster), 8 shallots, 2 pears, 2 red peppers, 1 orange pepper, 1 green pepper, 1 liter Verni's olive oil, green beans, 2 plums, 1 eggplant, 2 lb bags of chickpeas and white limas from Suncoast Farms in Lompoc, 10 lbs valencia oranges (these will keep us in juice for a couple of weeks), 1 cantaloupe, a small feta from Achadinha Cheese Co. in Petaluma.
