Spring Dawning

Spent this morning having dim sum in Flushing, Queens, then went to get my bi-weekly haul at Union Square Greenmarket.

Shrimp dumplings.

Egg custard tarts.

Shrimp pastries.

Red cooked pork buns. In the foreground are Chinese greens with oyster sauce.

Fish balls and some kind of turnip dumplings covered with tofu skin.

Clams with black bean sauce.

Roast duck.

This was a pic of a jiaozi house in a food court off of Main Street. Jiaozi are pork and chive dumplings. Absolutely delicious.

Organic eggs from Flying Pigs Farm in upstate New York.

Top: heirloom potatoes. Bottom: Chioggia beets.

It’s not a lemon meringue pie, but I figured Homer might appreciate it.

Sheep’s milk soap from 3-Corner Field Farm.

Gonna go take a nap now. Hope y’all had a lovely Saturday.

  1. Joe — the best part of all that dim sum was that we had the best table in the house…right next to the kitchen.

    If you’ve never had egg custard tarts seconds after being taken out of the oven, you. need. to. experience. it. now.

    Flaky pastry enclosing soft, gooey luscious eggy and faintly sweet custard.

    Your orgasm is forgiven. =P
