Holy Late Growing Season, Batman!

As many of you Portland foodies know, the Community Supported Agriculture fair was today. It was held at the Unitarian Church on Congress, and so we, along with, like, everyone else in Portland, crammed into the church to see what local farms will have to offer for CSAs in 2009. We sampled some really good food there - like crostinis with beets, goat cheese and arugula; and lobster meat. I'm now really excited about the prospect of having a crapload of fresh fruits and veggies every week this summer.

So when I got home, I decided, naturally, to make a summer salad. I used the remainder of a container of multicolored cherry tomatoes that enticed me at Whole Foods last week, some fresh mozz, and basil to make a Caprese salad.

It may be February in Maine outside, but I am inside, dreaming of sun-ripened produce in summer.
