I have a lot of silverware, way more than a single girl needs. So, when I get down to using a plastic fork, things have gotten bad.
I admit it: I would really like a hot bath and take-out tonight. Instead, I will throw together some food eventually clean my kitchen and blog. Such is the glamorous life of a locavore. There is no quitting.
Today was Farmers’ Market day, so I’ve been out and about all day, talking to people. schlepping signs, loading and unloading stuff from my “market mobile.” Now I’m home and before I can deal with my disaster of a sink, I need to eat. I’ve got a bunch of goodies from the market, and decide to throw together a quick summer salad.
Cucumber, tomato and basil salad
* I will leave out specific amounts, because that just depends on how much you want to make.
Halved cherry tomatoes
Chopped red onion
Sea salt to taste
Splash of apple cider vinegar
(If I had thought of this before I devoured it, I also would have added some of the chevre that I bought today from Yerba Santa Goat Dairy…)
Toss it all together and enjoy. And, yes, I will be eating this with a plastic fork. Then, I am taking that bath.
