Countdown to CSA!
Thursday, May 06, 2010
My CSA is starting up soon! Tuesday is pickup. This week we will have:
* spring onions
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.
