This week's box included:
*1 overfull basket of strawberries
*5 stalks of asparagus
*4 turnips (those long pink things are a variety of turnip)
*1 bunch of green onions
*1 small head romaine lettuce
*1 small head of broccoli
*1 head of cabbage
*A handful of green peas
*LOTS of beets
The beets and peas were from the "take some, leave some" box. I was one of the last to arrive so I was piled high with beets.
We have less direction this week than last. We're planning on using the strawberries to make some awesome lemonade. The asparagus I think we will saute and I found an interesting looking recipe for turnip green soup. The green onions will go into omlets, the cabbage might make it's way into coleslaw as we have a food processor this year and it should be a snap. The broccoli and beets will be salads and snacks with the romaine going into the salads as well. The peas will be...well, how exactly DO you cook regular peas? I suppose I shall have to do some googling. And then there are the turnips...I'm not really sure what we will do with those either. Any brilliant recipes I should know about?
