2009 CSA: Week 2

First, some recipes from last week!

I ate a lot of salad using the lettuces and arugula (delicious!!!) and I especially LOVED the arugula. Mmmm... arugula. Drool.

Oh, anyway... I used the garlic scapes in a goulash with some buffalo (recipe later).

I sauteed the spinach with some butter and garlic... and ate the whole bag in one sitting. I couldn't stop.

I loved the perfect little sweet strawberries, and I ate them all within 3 days! I used a few to make a gelatin dessert too.

The cilantro went into a curry.

I gave the radishes away to a very appreciative friend, I dont like radishes.

Made the broccoli raab into a sautee:

Broccoli raab.

Broccoli raab and herb goat cheese.

  1. Can you come live with me? I am loving both the raab and dessert! Wow! I knew you were good- but not this good.
