Nature’s Amazing BountyPosted: June 23, 2009
Like Tina said in the last post, a colleague of mine went out of down this week and donated her West Village CSA share to us. I went down to pick it up this afternoon and came away with the following items:
Bright Lights Swiss Chard: 1 bunch
Summer Spinach: 1 bunch
Napa Cabbage: 1 head
Red Leaf Lettuce: 1 head
Escarole: 1 head
Garlic Scapes: 6
Oregano: 1 bunch
Chives: 1 bunch
Needless to say, we are all set for produce this week, so we’re free to use our budget to stock up on some staples that are running low, like olive oil, soy sauce, salt, and maybe some Sriracha (which is honestly a staple for us).
The only thing is that we are going out of town this weekend for a wedding, so we need to use up these veggies stat, at least to make some food that we can freeze and eat when we get back. So far, we’re thinking we might try a spinach lasagna, and maybe some caldo verde. The cabbage, garlic scapes, and herbs will hopefully last until we get back.
If anybody has other suggestions for how to use this stuff in a hurry, let us know.
