CSA update

I also wanted to keep you posted on the progress of our first CSA box!

I have been rationing out the carrots and radishes for my daily lunch salads, but I used the last of the radishes today and will finish off the carrots tomorrow. Also gone are the salad greens (in salads... duh), the kale and part of the spinach (in Penne with Greens, olives and Feta from my April Bon Appetit), the braising mix (Stir-fried tofu with greens and peanuts - this was made unspicy though for Owen - not that he even ate any of it). I still have a bit of spinach and cilantro left, all of the parsley and the arugula. I have some ideas for the arugula (beets and gorgonzola being chief among them) but my boss, who is in the same CSA, can't stop talking about this recipe for roasted carrot salad, so I may hope for more carrots in the next box and try this out.

I tried to join my local CSA but all the shares were already gone. And this was their first year doing it! I was so excited about it. Maybe next year.

Owen said...

Yeah, I was too late last year too. But that will probably put you on the mailing list for next year, and just make sure you sign up first thing!

Heidi Ellis said...

Oh I'm on the mailing list, believe you me!

I'll be honest...I have no clue what kale is. And I'm certain that even if I did know, I'd have no clue what to do with it.

I don't get my first CSA box until Wednesday, but I'm so excited. But I also have no clue what to do with kale. So if you have any other good kale recipes you've been hoarding ...
