David and I have been eating at home a lot more over the last few months. This does not mean I don’t spend slightly unreasonable amounts of money on food, however. Although the beloved CSA means we’re chock full of well-priced veggies and eggs, as a Central Market aficionado, I’m always discovering new things that I “need”. Here are some of my latest obsessions:

Holy MFG this stuff is awesome. I’m a ginger addict, and this stuff is POTENT. I dare you to drink it while eating something spicy. Better yet, pour about half a bottle over ice, and top with mango juice. Heavenly. And if you’re feeling really saucy, add a little tequila. Oh no you didn’t…

Haagen-Dazs Ginger Ice Cream

Are we noticing a theme here? Haagen-Dazs has drawn my attention away from all the fancy gourmet ice creams with its new line of Five Ingredient ice creams. The ginger is amazing, and the brown sugar flavor is really good too. I had the ice cream with chopped mangoes and it was tast-eee. Wait, that’s two ginger-mango combos. I guess I have a problem.

My favorite weekend treat, I’ve worked my way through almost all their fabulous flavors and decided that the Farmhouse is my favorite. I just throw in whatever I have lying around – pears, pecans, zucchini (really, it’s good*), orange or lemon zest, cinnamon, ginger, granola, white chocolate chips – you name it. They always come out light and delicious.

* if you want to use veggies like zucchini and carrots in your pancakes, which I highly recommend, grate them very finely, and then squeeze out the excess water in cheesecloth. They make your pancakes lighter in texture and add some good fiber and nutrients.
