Countdown to CSA!

Thursday, May 06, 2010

My CSA is starting up soon! Tuesday is pickup. This week we will have:

* strawberries
* lettuce
* broccoli
* spring onions
* herbs
* spinach

I have a tub of black beans in the fridge and some mangoes / papaya. I am thinking a black bean and brown rice lime-spritzed lettuce wrap. Maybe with some frozen corn, salsa, tomatoes, spring onions, and an avocado. (And a flour tortilla with cheese for those who need such things to make it through dinner.)

Spinach will likely go into a new Indian recipe that calls for spinach and golden raisins. Or else spinach salad with tuna fish for lunch. Or eggs florentine for breakfast.

I may just roast the broccoli (hint of habanero-flavored olive oil for the grown-ups, plain for the young'un) and serve alongside the beef stew I have frozen from last week.

Depending on which herbs we get, I want to make a chimichurri to put on lamb for the grill.

And the strawberries? Maybe they'll make it home from the pickup, and maybe they won't.

    Sounds good. Sounds like you're going to have fun in the kitchen.
