Well of course F is for Fava beans, Fig vinegar and Farro.
I found it rather amusing that the new products I got earlier in the week with my trip to the big city all begin with the letter F! I had no idea this had occurred until I was stocking the pantry when I got home. I read a lot of food magazines and it is always disappointing when I become eager to try a recipe and then realize I don’t have an ingredient and no easy way of obtaining it in the near future. There is always mail order for a lot of things but that is beyond the scope of our food budget in most cases. I want to be the blog you read that has approachable recipes and readily available ingredients but I may throw in a grain, bean or heirloom veggie that I’m keen about once in a while that some of you big city folk can easily find. I will try to offer substitutions if it is a wild card ingredient. That said, F also stands for Friday. Happy Friday! I hope this finds you in high spirits!
