Check it out! I'm a carrot!
I insisted on being the carrot since it was the only vegetable with a hat. Everyone was saying that my sister-in-law is supposed to be lettuce, but those people obviously aren't members of a CSA. Clearly, Alicia is a bok choy.
I've got to say, the vegetable that has (surprisingly) proven to be the most challenging this summer, is cabbage:
We seem to get cabbage every week. I'm not sure how to preserve it, and other than salads and cole slaw, I'm not even sure how to eat it. But this week, I made a giant pot of Cabbage and Beef Soup, and it totally hit the spot:
I added some CSA celery to the mix, and used stew meat instead of ground beef, but other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter.
I made of loaf of Gorgonzola Bread with Kale to go with it:
If that looks good to you, check out the recipes tab, follow the directions for Spinach and Feta Bread, and switch it out for kale and gorgonzola. Yumm-o.
Seriously. So good.
Last night it was unseasonable summerish, so we ate outside on the deck:
We had a grilled chicken, a CSA salad, CSA sweet potato fries, and the rest of the bread:
Those are baked sweet potato fries and they're way good.
...especially as leftovers with breakfast.
