I <3 leftovers. And Farmer's Markets.  
I've swineherd's pie* in the oven. The very best thing about it, aside from using up leftovers and giving me much needed space in the fridge, is that it's topped with mashed purple potatoes**. I'm not sure how visually appealing it with be against the orange carrots, green peas and light brown pork and gravy, but as a whole it's fantastic.

Purple food. It's instant happy, folks.

*like a shepherd's pie, but with pork roast

**I got them at the Farmer's Market just this past Tuesday, but they were already starting to go a bit mushy. Also, I have a wee fresh mozzarella that needs consuming. I'm thinking tomorrow I'll served it with toasted sourdough bread, pesto, sliced tomatoes and the cheese.

Damn, we won't be in your state until around midnight tomorrow. Otherwise, I'd be fishing for an invite to dinner.

Oh, poo. If there's any chance you guys can find some time, though, you are SO invited for dinner!

I think we're mostly booked at this point. Visiting friends in Troy and they have plans to drag us around canoeing and caving and walking all over the place. Currently planning on rounding out the trip with a visit to NYRF next Saturday.

I totally understand. Frankly, that sounds like an awesome itinerary. I'll try to be at NYRF that day, but work has reared it's insistent head.

I LOVE purple potatoes in any form.

Your swineherd pie ought to include actual swineherd on top, though - everyone knows that.

My swineherd snares continue empty. I suck at this.

Purple? Come on, I hope you took a picture of it.

Dude, if you're looking for more purplish foods, I suggest you buy some red cabbage and make some (sweet, not sour) kraut out of it.

This recipe looks about right: http://www.grouprecipes.com/11016/suss-saures-rotkraut-sweet-and-sour-red-cabbage.html

Or this one, the picture of which is more purple: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/red-cabbage-and-apples/Detail.aspx

And if you want it to look REALLY unappetizing and curious tasting, mix it in with mashed potatoes.
