Lots of green this week, but also more variety. In addition to the usual pac choi, romaine lettuce, strawberries and green onions, we also got some beautiful kale, zucchini and fresh dill. I’m planning on making zucchini bread for breakfast using a recipe from a new cookbook that I just got (I’ll be writing about that soon) and I made a delicious strawberry cake last night using the strawberries (expect a post on that, too).
Hope everyone is well and enjoying the long weekend!
This week’s CSA pickup proved to be more of the same as the previous week, but with the addition of green onions. I’m really hoping that the share starts to change up a bit in the next few weeks because I’m finding it difficult to create entire meals out of what I have, which was my initial plan going into this. But still, check out the beautiful purple color on those radishes! Gorgeous!
I do plan on making stir-fry tomorrow with the pac choi from last week and the soy sauce I received a couple of weeks ago. I’ll be sure to write a post for it this weekend.
Now that the rain has let up, this week’s CSA proved to be an improvement over the first week in both volume and variety. This week, we received radishes, strawberries, pac choi, braising greens and two heads of lettuce.
I’ve only eaten radishes raw, but the weekly Grasshopper’s CSA newsletter included a recipe for braised radishes and greens, so I think I’m going to try that. As for the strawberries, I’m thinking of making cupcakes with them. Either that, or throw them in a salad using the lettuce heads. I’ll be sure to post pictures and recipes as I make the dishes.
In the meantime, I’d love to hear your suggestions for my CSA bounty.
I hope you’re having a great week!
