As usual, I am postponing my plans a little. I was going to leave Livermore either tonight or tomorrow and be in Ashland, Oregon for the weekend, but unexpectedly a friend of mine is going to be in town so I will stay a few more days. You know what that means: at least one more visit to the farmers markets. I have eyed fava bean recipes for years but haven’t seen any around until now. I have been getting them from the Livermore market and eating them with pasta and they’re really good, but I think their stronger appeal to me might be that they seem freakishly big for beans.
I also made focaccia bread this week and had tofu sandwiches, which have been on my mind ever since that one I ate from Wildberries in Arcata. My latest and less virtuous craving is for chocolate chip cookies. I think I can get those at the farmers market, too.
