Here's what was included this week for our group from Fair Shares:
- American Grassfed Beef-Stew Meat
- Herbs en Route Parsley
- Biver Farms Kale
- Yellow Wood Mustard Greens
- Dry Dock Lettuce
- Yellow Dog or Scharf Asparagus (not sure which farm it came from)
- Mangia Pasta Whole Wheat Radiattore
- Heartland Methuselah
- Tessa's Peanut Butter or Lee Sweet Potatoes (I opted for the yummy looking peanut butter)
- Lee/Hilty Roma Tomatoes
- Companion Miller's 5 Grain
Here's a picture I took of our share. And just one more reminder, if you go to my CSA Flickr set, I have notes on some of the pictures, identifying what's what:
So excited to get that asparagus -- I was beginning to think we might never get any!! Oh, and the vase on the right has some of the lovely pink roses from our garden. I just love this time of year :o)
From last time, we didn't get through the Swiss chard, so I'm determined to finish off the mustard greens and kale quickly, so that doesn't happen again. I really don't want anything to go to waste. We did make a pasta dish with the chorizo, which was great - since we were able to use the mushrooms, chorizo, fresh angel hair pasta ... I served it with a big salad made from the greens and the rosemary slipper bread, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It was a great dinner.
Last night I made some salmon fillets, cooked the asparagus and served it along side some yellow saffron rice. We also had some slices of the fresh bread. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying the fabulous meals were getting from our CSA!
From this share, I think I'm going to make some homemade pasta sauce with those canned tomatoes, and use the fresh radiattore. I still have some mozzarella, so I may make a little tomato, basil, mozzarella salad to go with it.
Still need to find a recipe for the ground lamb and will need to come up with something for the stew meat. But I'm excited about trying new things!!
