a bag of baby swiss chard (red, yellow and green stemmed)
a handful of scapes
a pint of pea pods
a bunch of kale
a bundle of white radishes
a head of lettuce (romaine)
2 small bunches of herbs (winter savory, oregano)
and a bouquet of field flowers :)
This is what was in my CSA Farm basket last Wednesday. I have linked you to information and a listing of CSA farms, if you are wondering what I am on about. Mostly I think it important to support the people that feed us. Mike Reid is one of those people.
That is a mess of greens for 2 adults, one adult is away and left before I got the basket. So I blanched and froze the kale. And I have been adding spinach to the dog's food. Hah! and he gets lots of comments on his shiney coat. Yes, I cook for my dog, don't you?
I researched recipes for pea pods and served them blanched with a sprinkle of salt, lemon juice and finely diced sweet white onion. Yum. As my Dad said " all those greens, gonna make your
nose twitch like a bunny". Folks coming to dinner tonight, (this afternoon I am picking up this week's basket) they are going to have a selection of greens! The bags were generous.
Will post a pic of today's market basket later or tomorrow :)
Happy Hump Day
