This week’s CSA pickup introduced new items, such as red onion, garlic and cabbage. We also received some more sugar snap peas, as well as a bunch of radishes, which I sliced up for lentil tacos, and a couple of heads of lettuce. I’m starting to get tired of lettuce. I love me some salads, but I’m finding that we can’t keep up with all the lettuce and we’re having to throw some out at the end of the week, which is frustrating. Still, I feel like we’re starting to receive more veggies that can take center stage in a meal.
I hope everyone is doing well!
And I would like to take a moment to personally thank my awesome friend and neighbor, Neil, who solved my blurry picture problem. Apparently, I just needed to clean my camera lens (I told you I suck at photography).
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!
