Dinner tonight was roasted pattypan squash, salad turnip (just one huge one), scallions (all from the CSA), and tofu (locally made from nonlocal beans), with nonlocal olive oil and salt. Very tasty — I like the way the turnip turned out when roasted. We made some chapatis to go with them out of local homeground spelt flour and a bit of oil. Lesson of the day: do not turn on the oven in that heat. And if you absolutely must, do not turn on the ceiling fan in the kitchen. It just whips the hot air around, making it feel sort of like some sort of desert windstorm.
I also froze some bok choy and started some experimental kimchi. And I have an 8-10 page paper due next Tuesday. I forsee lots of caffeine in my future. On the plus side, censorship issues in Israel turns out to be a really interesting topic.
