12 hours into a sleepy Sunday, with a few things accomplished, nothing of much import. The dog is clean though, and I actually managed to finish one sudoku puzzle; I had not been having much luck with the ones I had found, and finally got one done! I'm rewarding myself with a simple dinner on a rainy night.
Last Friday I wandered over to Santi's (Rockwell branch) and rummaged through the vegetable bin. There were several packets of brussel sprouts, a large basket of plump tomatoes, assortment of lettuce, mushrooms, and herbs. I took one of the b-sprouts, and saw, hidden behind the braggadocio tomatoes, a small container of what I thought were more sprouts, but upon further investigation, turned out to be very young looking kohlrabi! Wow! The leaves had been trimmed and likewise their elegant stems, but otherwise it was a hidden treasure indeed. I took it into my basket as well, tucking it gently among the sprouts, the nut bread, and some cheese.
Tonight, I roast my brussel sprouts, lightly tossed in olive oil and salt, while my kohlrabi is sliced along with some apple slices and a quick chop of dates for a crisp, slightly sweet, and refreshing salad. A healthy dinner reward for a pleasantly quiet Sunday.
