I'm in DC, too! I know for sure that the Columbia Heights Giant carries (or carried) it.

Sorry, I meant to write I made the smoothie with frozen figs and BUTTERMILK. I'm sure yogurt would work well, too.

Your bowlful of summer bounty is making me jealous! No fruit in the house at the moment...sigh.

Tonight's salad. Not exactly composed (kinda like us)...and forgot the capers and corn. Added toasted breadcrumbs leftover from a creamed chard recipe last week. Very tasty. I couldn't finish mine.

ETA: photos rotating in upload...WHY?

We've decided it's time to eat down our pantry and freezer a bit, so dinners were planned and groceries shopped with that in mind.

Last night I made a veggie lasagna with mushrooms, green peppers, onions, and zucchini with sausage red sauce and a classic herbed ricotta, Parm Regg, egg, and mozz. filling. It turned out really nice, although leftovers for lunch today were better.

Tonight we're having unconventional Salades Niçoise with boiled beets, potatoes, eggs, and corn, olives, blanched green beans, tomatoes, Italian oil-packed tuna, capers, egg, baby Romaine greens, and a mustardy vinaigrette with anchovy.

I've thawed mahi mahi fillets, and we have rainbow chard and fresh corn use up. I think I'll probably make this Sicilian-sounding dish sans pasta (subbing walnuts for the pine nuts), with buttered corn on the cob on the side as our starch.

Meh - goat cheese brie. I wanted to love this, but we found it kind of bland.

Meh cilantro-lime chicken burgers. These were serviceable for a quick dinner but didn't blow us away. And I am not crazy about the flavor of cooked cilantro.

Yay - frozen figs. These were great in a smoothie with yogurt and maple syrup.

Yay - organic Tuscan kale. I like this finely chopped and made into salads/slaw, or sauteed. There is a manageable amount of stem pieces, not too bad.

Yay - whole milk Greek yogurt. Rich and delicious, and the perfect level of tanginess for cooking (I made an eggplant dip).

Yay - reduced guilt pita chips. Hardly a health food, but really good.

Yay - "Giotto's" Organic Tomato Basil Marinara. To be fair, I used this as a base for a quick tomato soup (added cream, flour slurry, chicken broth, and herbs), not on pasta. It was pretty decent, and I'd probably make the same again.

Nay - fresh 90/10 ground beef. We handled ours properly, and it spoiled several days before the expiration date.
