New York Awesome: Park Slope, Brooklyn

I love my neighborhood in the Spring.

For the first time in what feels like 6 months, it's beautiful outside. We went for a walk alongside Prospect Park on down to the weekly (Saturdays) farmer's market at Grand Army Plaza. We picked up a turnip ($1/lb), butternut squash ($1/lb), and one shallot ($5/lb). I only know what to do with the butternut squash. The other two I'll need to find out a bengali kopi torkari recipe or a good American recipe for turnips.

On the way pack we stopped by the a legendary vegetable patty from Christie's on flatbush for only $2.25. Cutting over from the park we walked down 5th avenue, stopped at the park in front of the Old Stone House noshing on potato salad, macaroni salad and the patty. Life felts pretty good today. Big ups to Brooklyn
