mixoparthenos "Won't you be my neighbor?" Yesterday we got a bunch of bananas from one of the trees! We like to grow heirloom edibles (typically non-commercial), which offer unique flavors and textures, an array of wonderful nutrients and contribute to biodiversity. Plus, it's just neat to go out and pick your food from the earth! The butterflies and bees certainly get a feast on our green space do you grow some of your own food? Curious about starting? Let's inspire one another with garden projects! Snap a photo, share it and tag #behindfoods Create a collage! 20h

mixoparthenos Have you ever heard of Miracle fruit? After you eat one, foods that taste sour all of a sudden taste sweet! I like lemons anyhow, but after eating this fruit I could eat them as if they were oranges 🍋 Conjuring up a menu for an experiential dinner party ️ wouldn't that be fun?

ps if you're interested in growing these (homegrown) let me know, and I'll save you some seeds!

mixoparthenos A friend at the store enlightened me with some news about buffalo, and how it can be easier to digest for those who have sensitivity. I don't care what anyone says about cheese, but I think part of life is just enjoying (there's so much freaking stuff to worry about in the world) and everyone has their things that bring them joy... for me nothing can replace the diverse range of flavors created from traditions around producing cheese (except for Kraft American Singles... doesn't really intrigue me). And since I don't have cheese often, when I do, it's a divine experience for me yum! With that whole mouthful being said, for anyone who can appreciate cheese, this is quadrello di bufala. I sautéed figs with cashews in honey, sea salt and a dusting of pepper. Served with these crispy, thin sesame crackers made from rice. Take out a cheese plate, a bottle of wine and enjoy with good company. Cherish those moments in life. Happy Day mes amis 2w

mixoparthenos I can see what is around me, but I cannot see beyond. Faith and vision serving as a guide. I move towards uncertainty, going with *that* feeling, to feel as though I'm never truly lost nor found. As a wanderer, I pause for a moment only to realize that where I'm standing is where the "beyond" is known. 2w

mixoparthenos Red Shen Choy | Another first for me! Found this leafy green at an Asian grocer in the area, and learned that red [amaranth] is loaded with vitamins A and C, and iron, calcium and quite a bit of protein. I let it sit in the fridge for a bit till I finally figured out what I wanted to make... any guesses? I promise to share 2w
