The official haul this week was 2 heads of lettuce, a bag of mixed salad greens, 2 bunches of bok choy, a bunch of broccoli rabe, 6 scallions, 6 radishes and 6 baby turnips. Now, we normally eat a good amount of veggies in this house - but I think this is a bit more greenery than I originally bargained for. No worries, we'll just be eating lots of salads this week!
Beyond the lettuce, I don't have a lot of experience cooking with the other veggies, but I'm excited to try some new recipes. To me, part of the benefit of joining the CSA was to stretch myself in the kitchen, and it's nice to see we're starting the adventures right off the bat. The biggest challenge this week, I think, will be figuring out what to do with the radishes and turnips. I normally wouldn't choose either (and Mr. ValleyWriter has already declared he has no interest in any dish made with them), but I'm willing to give something a try. Maybe I'll do some maple roasted veggies or something. If you have any ideas - please let me know!
