The above picture is from our mid-December bag, which included: 2-pound bag of carrots, one candy onion, a loaf of whole wheat bread, one kohlrabi, one acorn squash, one bunch … More Butternut Squash & Sage Lasagna.
Last weekend I picked up some fresh cut peonies at my local grocery store. Sitting on my kitchen window sill, they look gorgeous in my white enamel water pitcher.
