Lots of Chocolate For Me To Eat . . .
Imagine my shocked response when I saw this tweet from my husband while he was in Switzerland on business.
By the way, 262 CHF is $236 USD. Things in Switzerland are expensive! For example, a cappuccino and a bottle of water from Starbuck's costs $12 USD. Anyway, of course I wasn't mad. I mean, how can I be mad when I get to enjoy these?
I fell in love with Sprungli's liquor-filled chocolates the first time he brought them back from Switzerland. I even wrote a whole post about them. This time he brought champagne-filled chocolates too! Can't wait to try them . . .
I'm loving my farm share . . .
I haven't been posting pictures each week about my farm share, but I'm loving it just the same. Compared to a different farm share that I had tried a few years back (where it felt like we just kept getting tons of kale and lettuce each week), Siena Farms' box share is fun because it includes a lot of unique, heirloom varieties of stuff. The program is a bit more expensive (about $30/week), but the quality of the veggies are top notch. This past week, I got rainbow carrots, bok choy, French breakfast radishes, fennel, different colored beets, escarole, purplette onions, shelling peas, and Tuscan kale.
I recently checked out their website and found a list of really nice local restaurants that serve vegetables from Siena Farms. Here's the entire list with hyperlinks to my reviews.
Oleana (updated review with pictures here)
Sofra Bakery and Café
No. 9 Park
The Butcher Shop
B+G Oyster Bar
Beacon Hill Bistro
Upstairs on the Square
Market by Jean-Georges
Coda Bar and Kitchen
These are some really nice restaurants! So happy I get to enjoy the same quality of veggies at home.
