shopping at chelsea market

We took the girls to the Chelsea Market today and bought a bounty of vegetables for real cheap. These beets were just 50 cents a pound. Since we’ve been eating so poorly lately, we decided to make a simple, healthy vegetable soup for dinner with some Rosemary bread we picked up at the little Farmer’s Market a block from our place. Not sure what we’ll do with the beets, but they were hard to pass up at that price…and look how beautiful they are – the colors!

The girls loved running around the place and I hadn’t been back to the Market since I freelanced in-house at a firm in that building when I was 7 months pregnant with C. Some shops seemed to have changed hands, but we stopped by my favorite spot, the fish store and had sushi and lobster bisque. Mark and I can’t seem to catch our breath on all the work and orders that are coming in daily, so we’ve made it a point to take some time each day to spend together, all 4 of us. Can’t say that these moments are relaxing – the pair of them have become a terror together!

    Here’s a great (super easy) recipe for beets a friend shared with us a couple of weeks ago. Scrub the beets & leave skin on. Put them in a pot of water and boil for about 30 minutes until the beets are soft. (Beware this will splatter all over if not watched!). When the beets are cooked, pour off the water. Add some balsamic vinegar and add a little garlic powder or other seasoning. That’s it! They’ll keep in your fridge for a week or two and you can eat with cold, with a salad, with blue cheese, or whatever else you can think of!
