Today was the second pickup day for my CSA share, and I am quite excited for this week’s bounty! We got a huge head of cabbage, 2 zucchini, a cucumber, a whole head of leaf lettuce, a bag of mesclun, 2 heads of broccoli, a bunch of swiss chard, 3 beets with the greens, a bag of snap peas, 2 onions, and a thing of raspberries!!
It sounds odd to say that I am excited for vegetables, but I really am! I received some of the onions in my share last week, and they are the best onions I have ever eaten. I cut the tops off and used them for my soup base last week, and the actual onion part itself was so crisp…. Mmmm…
My youngest son started digging into the raspberries as soon as I walked in the door. He spotted them like a hawk, and started picking them off the minute I wasn’t looking. Little sneak.
The broccoli didn’t stand a chance either. It is one of our favorite vegetables, and was quickly included in tonight’s dinner.
I have big plans for the cabbage. I love cabbage rolls. Like, lllooooovvvveee them. But unfortunately for me, my husband does not. He can’t stand the taste of cooked cabbage or the smell of sauerkraut, which means I can only get away with making them once or twice a year. I haven’t made them in a long, long time though, so I think it’s due time.
As for the rest, who knows!! But I am excited to try some new things and share them with you! If you have any recipes that use the veges I got today, please feel free to share!!
