The first batch from the CSA arrived Tuesday. Guess what I got? A whole lotta lettuce. 7 heads to be exact. I will not be this ambitious, but I will say 4 heads of romaine, a head of bib, a head of red and green lettuce will drive a girl to drink when it's not exactly SALAD weather outside. I'm warming up soups for lunch to soothe my weather depression - all the while knowing I have healthy, leafy veggies waiting for me. Sigh.
I did cook up beets - after I realized they weren't radishes. Dad almost got a bunch of beets for Father's Day. I know he likes fresh radishes and I was ready to pawn them off. Good thing I had a Eureka-moment driving the other day and inspected my little purple friends closer. I think Alex ate most of them...yummy.
We have Rhubarb that will likely find it's way to the rubbish, sadly. I'm not a baker and from what I can tell that's about all you can do with rhubarb - add it to strawberries for pies, crisps and muffins.
Parsley will look pretty sprinkled over my roasted potato wedges tonight, and Kale will sit in the fridge for a bit until I find the energy to look up kale recipes. Don't rush me!
I sure hope there are more beets next week. I only got to enjoy 1/2 of one...
