It’s finally that time of year again!! 🙂
Our first week of our 2013 CSA is a tad delayed due to our being on vacation this past week. Our farm did us a huge favor and put our box together on the day we returned home, rather than on our pick-up day when we were still in Delaware.
Mike & I were ready for some healthier meals after our trip, and our box gave us a great opportunity to catch up on eating better & “detoxing”, so to speak.
Our box included:
– 3 bags of spinach
– 3 kohlrabi bulbs
– 2 heads red butterhead lettuce
– 1 head green butterhead lettuce
– 2 bundles ‘bright lights’ Swiss chard
– 2 small bundles of dinosaur kale
– 1 small bundle of curly kale
One bag of spinach turned into a steak salad. The other two were cooked, chopped & frozen for future recipes. The lettuce has been washed & stored, waiting to be used in salads. The kale was cooked up with some noodles, miso & Asian-inspired seasonings.
The kohlrabi will be made into stir-fry, and possibly pickles. The swiss chard is probably going to be blanched & frozen – I did this last summer and it was a great addition to a minestrone I made once the weather turned cold.
…unless YOU have any great ideas for Swiss chard? 😉
