We did give away some beets to my dad last week. We are continuing to do well with using the full share-- I have had to put a few odd leaves of limp lettuce in the compost, but there hasn't been any major waste, so far.
Here's our share. I had to put it on the table this week and stand on a chair to take the picture.
|Sam was once again exhausted from baby socialization at Music Time at Central St. Farmhouse, and was thus unable to play with the produce. He had a blast, though, showing off his forward scooch and making Ring Wraith noises with the other baby his age.|
I'm guessing a little for amounts this week because I don't have the newsletter right in front of me:
2 heads of lettuce
1 lb salad mix
1 bunch of Hakuri turnips
1 bunch of carrots
1 bunch of chard
1 bunch of kale
1 bunch of scallions
1 bunch of garlic scapes
1 (enormous) head of pak choi
Tentative Meal Plan
At least three batches of Kale Chips. Maybe I will get to eat some this time!
Pasta with greens and ricotta, from the Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home: Fast and Easy Recipes for Any Day (I'll use all chard)
Homemade pizza with garlic scape pesto (never made this last week)
I am torn between doing a basic stir fry and making spring rolls, which would make good use of some of the remaining veggies-- I've never made them before. Any tips? I was thinking the kids might enjoy rolling them/ customizing them (perhaps... even eating them).
Tomato soup, five minute bread, salad
Grill night-- hot dogs, trimmings. and, shockingly, salad.
