So there I was leaning against the wall of Clear Flour bakery, waiting to pick up my Stillman Farm meat CSA share that I split with Christine from work and listening to my meat farmer chat about having everyone to the farm in June to 'see what our share does all day and meet the animals'. He finally wraps up the conversation by asking the woman ahead of me in the queue her name.
She says, 'Well my name is Tami, but I am picking up for Karen W'.
So being the general tactful person I am, I blurt out, 'Hey, aren't you Food on the Food?'
Tami looks both ways and at her adored farmer before answering the crazy stalker lady with bed head standing behind her.
Thrusting out my hand, "I'm Jo, Amuse Bouche!"
God I am an idiot. I'm just so damn tactful I am and from my loud front presence one would never know I am actually shy under the surface. NO. REALLY! I tried very hard not to terrorize her adorable son who was hiding behind her afraid of this very loud crazy woman.
It was great to finally meet someone in person that I had been reading for the last year. We chatted for a few minutes and she introduced me to a woman and her husband that she had seduced into driving up from the Cape to get involved with the CSA share as well. See, meet your farmer, buy a CSA share, all the cool kids are doing it.
After we parted I headed off with husband to Whole Foods in Brookline and we spotted a Kentucky license plate to add onto our license plate bingo board (It's almost full now, just missing maybe 5 states and Hawaii which I doubt we will ever see in my lifetime). Kentucky has eluded us for 2 years! Don't those people ever leave home? Mississippi, we're looking for you too - and Arkansas while your at it.
Tucked inside that meat share, by the way, is a gorgeous chunk of smoked ham.. b-a-b-y. Easter dinner, I think your fate has been decided!
Seriously, how much fun can one have on a Sunday?
