We’ll be enjoying this pizza, full of spring flavors, while watching the movie “Goodfellas”.

  • 1 lb zucchini

On Wednesday, at the Durham Farmer’s Market I picked up another pint of strawberries and a tomato from Flat River Nursery. By far, the best of both that I’ve tried recently.

I also purchased 5 bell peppers while they were on sale this week. I washed, seeded, and sliced them and placed into two freezer bags for use in recipes in the next few weeks. I’ve got red bell, poblano, banana, and jalapeño planted in my vegetable garden but it will still be a month or more before they start producing a nice crop for me to harvest.
