Week 1 of 2011

This week we got…

Broccoli, Bok Choi, Garlic Scapes, Kale, Radishes, Spinach, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Boston Bibb Lettuce, Red Leaf Lettuce, Salad Mix, Basil, Parsley

My plans…

Broccoli, Bok Choi, and Summer Squash will be made into a stir fry.

Garlic Scapes – just use these like you would a clove a garlic.

Kale and Zucchini I will store. The Kale I will just rough chop, blanche, and freeze to be used like spinach. The Zucchini I plan to bake into this snack cake and freeze.

With the radishes and their greens I plan to make this Buttery Shrimp and Radish Pasta.

With the Boston Bibb, Red Lettuce, and Salad Mix we will have salad every night this week.

I plan to make pesto out of both the Basil and Parsley.


  1. Thank you for enlightening me on how to use those funny looking garlic things! With much appreciation for your expertise as I participate in my first year with a CSA share!

  2. Quilting Mama sent me over here after I posted on FB that I am completely overwhelmed with my CSA haul this week. Glad to know how to use the garlic scapes and I am grateful for your link about freezing. I am freezing the kale also, for smoothies I think. We got sugar snap peas that I am freezing too. Not sure I can sell the radishes here at our house. Think maybe I will share them at work.
