I looked at the produce stickers this week to see where my fruits were coming from and decided to pass up on the pears (Chile) and kiwis (Italy? really?) and ended up with lots of citrus instead. Also got some mozarella so we can make pizza instead of eating out this week. But I forgot to get broccoli, my favorite topping.

The beets last week were fantastic, so this week I doubled up. I’ve been roasting them together with carrots and brussel sprouts. Who would have guessed they would taste well together, but the internet said so and it was true!

Looking around for another new-to-me food, I found a bunch of kohlrabi. They smell like cabbage but are a bit sweeter on the inside. Not outstanding but they’re good for adding a little variety of texture to salads.
