A “new normal” farmer’s market visit & Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp

0

Farmers markets are a sign of springtime, one of my favorite things about the weather getting warmer and not to mention also a wonderful alternative to making a trip the grocery store—especially right now.

As I'm sure you've also experienced, grocery stores and super markets have been extra chaotic. Limited choices are available of produce, meats, dairy and other essentials unless you go to the store at specific times or on specific days. Masks, bandannas or some other kind of facial covering are required to enter the store—speaking for New Jersey, which mandated this at least three weeks ago, but now also Pennsylvania within the last week or two. And sometimes you need to wait your turn to enter the store because of restrictions put in place on the number of people allowed in at once, otherwise choose to come back at another time.

Visiting a farmers market, by contrast, is a nice break from making a now-normal grocery store visit, so this weekend Dave and I stopped at a farmers market we saw in a local strip mall parking lot. It was a very different experience when compared to visiting open air markets in seasons past .

March 2020 Update – Finding an opportunity to reflect in difficult times

This post will be a deviation from the normal content that I typically have here, but I hope you don't mind given the circumstances?

If you've followed any type of news recently, you know that we now find ourselves faced with a very serious global health crisis.

If you asked me a year ago, even a month ago, if this is how I would've imagined the year 2020 starting out, I would've looked at you like you had 8 heads and you were talking about a plot line from a new episode of The Walking Dead or a movie that I have yet to see.

No matter how you see this playing out or believe the media, our politicians, or any others are helping address (or not) the situation, it's clear that this is far from business as usual.

May 2018 Update

Well. It has been an interesting start to the year.

I've been on the fence about how much "personal" content to post here, ever since I started this blog over a year ago. Not that I don't want my posts to be personal—certainly, I'm not a robot, and don't want to sound like one—but topic-wise, I've largely gotten away from daily journal, day-to-day posting that I did in the past on my blogs to focus exclusively on food topics here.

I think everyone will excuse me for this particular deviation, though...
