BLT Essential Ingredients from Local Bryant Street Market

I enjoy shopping in a smaller market. A place that isn’t an airplane hangar or cluttered with patio furniture and piles of stuff at the ends of the aisles. Just down the hill is a reopened market on Bryant Street, cleaned up and offering La Prima coffee to grind, a delicatessen case filled with all sorts of meats, cheeses and salads. Sandwiches to go. Enrico’s Biscotti. In the freezer they have Donatelli’s Italian Ravioli-mushroom, artichoke, roasted red pepper and traditional cheese. They sell Allegro Hearth Bread, fresh produce and Turner dairy items, Bob’s Red Mill grain products, spices and Chuckles . They’ve extended their hours and will deliver to your home. After my appointment I stopped in to get lunch ingredients as a friend was coming over to eat. BLT on T shouts summer to me!

” When You Care Enough…

to send the very best.”  Slogan originated in 1944. I used to send more greeting cards. They’d be late sometimes. Most times.  Some remember every occasion and send a lovely card. Well, one friend in particular I know.  And on time, too. I used to read cards as a stress relief.  Find an envelope if it was missing.

Rhubarb & Savoy Cabbage-Opposites on Color Wheel

How do you feel about rhubarb?  People either love it or hate it. There is no in-between.  The rhubarb in Joan’s garden returns every year.  The leaves are supposedly poison. To me the word rhubarb is comical.    A sure sign of Spring.  The lighting was not great at the grocery but sometimes one is moved to photograph anyway. Click the word rhubarb for more info, recipes and how to tend it. Rhubarb reminds me of my grandmother.  My sister made strawberry rhubarb preserves and we’d slather it on warm Zito’s bread when the kids and I would visit her in NYC.

How do you feel about rhubarb?
