when I was down you just stood there grinning

Here's my plunder from this morning. And by "plunder" I mean "produce I acquired in a totally aboveboard and law-abiding fashion." John and I were in Montpelier last night, and there were signs all over town advertising the "Clover Creek Farmer's Market." I assumed that it was a typo, and surely there would be more than one farmer there, but they were pretty serious. There was a lady selling potted geraniums and a guy selling parsley, rhubarb and green garlic. I bought him out of rhubarb and got the last clump of garlic. In their defense, it's Montpelier, it's cold all the time, the growing season barely started, and it's been raining for weeks. I'm going to use the garlic in our dinner tomorrow (roast chicken or braised goat shoulder--I haven't decided which), and I'm trying to settle on what to do with the rhubarb. Pie? Crisp? Fool? Ice cream? Ice cream sauce? Jam?

Phil was quite amused by the farmer's market. Wish I'd been there too.
