CSA Produce!

Last week:

Butter Lettuce and Green Leaf Lettuce:

Several salads including a Santa Fe style with quickly “roasted” corn and onions (didn’t have any black beans).


Chicken salad tonight and using up the rest of the butter lettuce


Roasted the few and planned on doing a Dill-Walnut Vinagrette but I was scared of eating beets.

Spinach and Beet Greens:

Made sautéed with garlic and bacon


Made an excellent rhubarb-strawberry pie


Potato salad

Homemade dip with corned beef (the store was out of the dried beef I was planning to use, but Clayton loved it)

Tonight I’m going to use it in a recipe for chicken salad with tarragon from my plant. UPDATE: I am eating it right now. It's really yummy.

Cilantro- didn’t get used. Matt’s away and I’m not a big fan of it.

Pastured Eggs- just hard-boiled them tonight and plan to use the garlic scapes I got today to make deviled eggs with bacon.

Plans for This Week:

Baby spinach

Full grown spinach

I’m thinking about making a quiche. I suppose I could make an extra crust tonight to use. Or maybe a breakfast bake. I might be able to make one and then freeze it until Matt gets home. Plus, the girls are coming next week.

Butter Lettuce


2 Types of Kale- plans for Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana recipe I found.

-baked Kale chips

Beets- red -roast them and make brownies

Baby white beets- I’m going to make hummus

These are roasting right now.

I was counting on rhubarb this week, so I’ll have to make a plain strawberry pie since I bought strawberries. I’ll probably mix in some frozen black berries and see how that works. I’m planning to make the dough here soon and cook it up tonight. I better get going. Not really what I want to be doing, but I’m worried about the berries going bad.
