Sounds great, Justin! FYI, for your photo to show up inline, you need to size it down to 500x500 pixels or less. No harm in clicking through, but if you want it to show, that's the trick.

When it is in season and available from local farmers, Ron at the Root Cellar has kohlrabi. You can't get any more local than that, and since Kohlrabi is a late fall, and sometimes winter crop, you might have some luck. I know I've gotten some there recently (though I don't recall how recently), I believe it was grown on Ivor's Firld Day Farm. Pretty sure Whole Foods has it almost year round, again subject to availability, so in other months it comes from the southern hemisphere, if you choose not to go local. And since Paul's only has a tiny amount of truly local stuff, and Kingsley's and Lotsa very little too, why not give your money who walks the local walk instead of just talking the local talk?



I'm all for it Ken. I'm not familiar with the Root Cellar, but I'll check it out. Local folks need better visibility! Or maybe I'm not looking in the right spots!

There are 2 Root Cellar stores, one in Old Louisville and one in Germantown, not sure if either of those is convenient to you. Ron and his crew are good people, and he stocks locally grown produce year round, plus locally grown meats in his freezer, local cheese, eggs and dairy, and Weisenberger mills products, plus a few other things, like sorghum and honey. He is super strict about the local thing, so, for instance, he does not stock the Weisenberger rye products, because the grain is sourced from further away, unlike their corn and wheat products.

Comfort food: Cauliflower florets in a rich Mornay hit with a whiff of smoked Spanish paprika over fluffy long grain rice.

I'll see your comfort food and raise you cabbage rolls!

My sweetie's working late tonight so I'm at a table for one. These galumkis are leftovers, but that only enhances the flavor. And besides being rated in the past by my late, sainted Polish mother as better than hers (quite the high compliment indeed), the twist with these is they're made with ground turkey instead of the beef and/or pork.

Served with "leftover' Polish vodka

Egyptian-style Ful Medames made with braised limas in place of the usual fava beans. The substitution works. Great with quartered Greek pitas.

Thanks, Ronnie. The beans aren't truly Frenched, of course, but the short diagonal slices get you to a similar place in a heck of a lot less time. :mrgreen:

Things are crazy this week, so I'm cooking all day to reheat the rest of the week ( and likely because I'm stressed and cooking calms me :wink: :wink: ).

Cranberry orange muffins
Pork Chile Verde
Vegetarian Black bean chili
Chicken pot pies
