I was on vacation last week (in more ways than one, actually), but now I am back!
And what better way to come back to SparkPeople than with a blog about today's CSA box.
Here's the bounty!
Garlic scapes ... weren't we just discussing those?
Summer squash, both zucchini and yellow.
Red and Green Leaf Lettuces
And a loaf of Whole Grain Bread too.
Ok, I recently started watching Chopped, based on some recommendations of other members. Oh my, it makes me hungry sometimes!
But like Chopped, I always try to make an interesting dish using some (not all) of the CSA ingredients. So here is my dish for this box:
Whole Wheat Noodles and squash julienne, with saute of garlic scapes and chicken. garnished with a bit of Parmegiano Reggiano.
This dish was really good, and I think rather light and tasty. Next time, I will use even less noodles and more squash.
And I forgot to post one of last box's creation, so here it is:
Sauteed Kale with Mushrooms and Garlic
