Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal. When compared to a traditional cauliflower, as a vegetable its texture is far more crunchy, and its flavor is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.This morning, after our regular Saturday walk, I headed to the Farmers' Market to see if I could pick some up. I found that it's not available there until the fall harvest, as my grower told me it's best then, more flavorful and abundant. I might have to go to Joe's Gardens and see if I can pick up some starts for my own fall harvest. If it's more delightful than what I ate yesterday, I can't wait!
In a few minutes I'm leaving to go to the movies with my friend Judy. We're going to see Ida at our independent theater. It's gotten great reviews. I've learned not to trust reviews all that much, but many people have said this is one of the best of the year, not to be missed. Then tomorrow, if the weather cooperates, I'll be heading to the Drop Zone in Snohomish for you know what!
