A Post for A Drab Day

I had some monumental snarkiness about the College and Associaion of Registered Nurses of Alberta and their decision to discipline nurses for using the internet at work — a hitherto unexplored danger to public safety! — but I don’t have the heart for it today. Suffice the say, their Complaints Committee has far to much time on their hands.

At any rate, went a farmer’s market yesterday and bought a quart basket of field-ripened heritage tomatoes for the slightly exorbitant price of $9. However, these are possibly the best tomatoes I have ever tasted. Eating them in — what else? —  toasted tomato sandwiches seems to be the best destiny for them, but adding them fresh to hot pasta with a dash of olive oil, some grated parm and plenty of salt and pepper is a close second.

And the garden about ten days ago. Sadly, the lilies (Lilium canadense, in case you’re wondering) have faded since.

    Those yummy tomatoes look good at any price. We do not pay our farmers enough for the food they grow.
    Your echinacea purpurea are brilliant, nothing better than a smash of colour.

    Welcome to my world….. I honestly think that CARNA is a bunch of pantyhose wearing bimbos that try to think of ways to punish the nurses of Alberta. Heaven forbid they try to help fix the system of lack of patient care, lack of nurses, and the lack of support.
