How is a girl supposed to resist all these gorgeous fruits and veggies? Asparagus! Cherries! Avocadoes! Corn! Strawberries! And big fat leeks! Aren't they beautiful? I swear, the leeks started to weep when I walked past them, and I could not abandon them.
I tend to go overboard and buy more food than we can eat. The asparagus gets buried behind a carton of eggs, and a few weeks later, I discover a science experiment in my fridge. We don't eat all the strawberries and I feel guilty when they turn to mush. Or there's a heat wave and I can't bear the idea of cooking, even if the leeks are wilting and need to be consumed asap.
If someone wants to teach a course called "how to buy the right amount of food at the farmer's market," I will register as your first pupil. (Please. I need help).
