At the farmers market.


Vendor said these were a hybrid, Hayden and something else. Ripens later than other types. Did not buy, The Cat is mangoed out this season.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Detour from Sunday’s routine. We did do the farmers market. The normal fruits and veggies thing. Picked up a jar of pickled carrots from Picnics from the Vine: https://picnicsfromthevine.com/products/organic-pickled-sweet-and-sour-carrots. (The Mouse’s normal picture resizer website is down). Sigh.

No Ruby Tuesday this week. Reservations at Iron Chef’s new SPAM Land eatery (Will post later). “Light” lunch.

Panda Express Plate

Brown rice, mixed veggies, chicken with string beans, and grilled chicken.

Dinner was “interesting”, but what else would you expect from Iron Chef Morimoto, hmm?

Hope the resizer is up and running later.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Vendor had this for sale at the farmers market last week.

Cooking Banana

Never heard of a cooking banana before. Asked the vendor if this was plantain, she said no, it was a cooking banana, had to be cooked. Vendor sold me one to try.

Couldn’t find info on the internet about “cooking banana”.

Vendor said to boil it in its skin for fifteen minutes or so then peel it. So that’s what I did.

Cooked and Peeled Cooking Banana

Texture and taste reminded me of steamed or roasted breadfruit. Taste like a starchy banana with a slight tartness thrown in. The Cat likes. I have permission to buy if available at the farmers market. I wonder if I can “roast” these?

Have a safe and happy Halloween. Tomorrow’s dinner will be a “treat” for us. Stay tuned.

Enjoy. Eat well.
