2011 CSA Week #2

I’m a bit late getting this posted, but better late than never…

Here’s what was in our share this week:

  • 1 Bunch Green Kale
  • 1 Bag Spinach
  • 1 Bag Broccoli
  • 1 Bunch Green Romaine Lettuce
  • 1 Bunch Red Scallions
  • 1 Bunch Oregano
  • 1 Head Red Leaf Lettuce
  • 1 Bag Spicy Lettuce Mix

We had the red leaf lettuce and spicy lettuce mix in a big salad on Thursday night, along with homemade croutons, the last of the radishes from last week, some parsley from last week, some oregno, and some scallaions, topped with a homemade balsamic vinegarette.

Friday night was grilled pizza – I used more oregano mixed in with the tomatoes. The rest of the oregano is hung up drying in bundles in the basement.

Saturday night was carne asada fajitas with homemade guac (and homemade margitas!). There were some scallions in there as well – we’ve got so many scallions at this point!

Tonight, Sunday night, we had beer can chicken along with the brocolli, lightly steamed, served with salt and pepper. It was great.

Tomorrow is slated to be sour creme enchilladas – more scallions used up, yay! – and we’ll probably finish off the last of the guacamole too. Tuesday will be grilled skirt steak over the romaine in a Caesar salad. Wednesday will be spinach salad and a chicken dish. Oh, and at some point, I plan to make kale chips – I was supposed to do that today, but didn’t get around to it.
