Bloggin’ My CSA: Second of Ten
I picked up delivery number two today. It has a lot in common with delivery #1, but with a few notable interesting differences.
There is a built-in challenge this week considering my goal of 100% consumption. We’ll be on vacation for a couple days starting tomorrow. So, I had to approach this list with a little strategy. The box contains: red leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, curly parsley, purple bulb onions, kohlrabi, kale, garlic scapes, black raspberries (nice!), cucumbers, zucchini, snap peas, and the every-present eggs.
The red-leaf is already gone. It’s too delicate to mess around with so it immediately became a salad along with one of the two cucumbers. The scapes are gone too. They were sauteed with some green beans from last week’s market. The raspberries will be gone before bed, I’m sure.
The rest of the stuff can hang out for a few days in the fridge without any major problem. The snap peas will come on the trip with us and become road-trip snack food.
A few closeups:
Eight zucchini was a bit of a surprise. It’s not my favorite veggie, so I’m open to any new and interesting suggestions. This is a lot to eat. My wife declared that anything over six zucchini officially qualifies as a “shit-ton”. I’ll be sick of zucchini for sure by this time next week.
