Week Two of 2013

We got...
Arrowhead Cabbage, Arugula, Broccoli Rabe, Garlic Scapes, Kale, Kohlrabi, Radish, Salad Mix, Salanova Head Lettuce, Scallions, Sugar Snap Peas, Summer Squash,  Tatsoi, Zucchini, Basil, Cilantro, Parsley


My ideas....
Arugula – I’m going to serve this Celery and Parsley Salad (which uses arugula as the base) with Pizza this week.  It says right into the description that it goes well with Pesto Pizza.
Broccoli Rabe – This Linguine with Rabes and Parsley Pesto look delicious.
Kale – The Kale is going into the freezer in this favorite soup, Sausage and KaleSoup.
Kohlrabi – I’ve been waiting a whole year to make this Sweet, Creamy Kohlrabi Slaw again.
Radish and Tatsoi – Feeling Adventurous?  Try making your own potstickers.  This recipe calls for bok choy.  Tatsoi has a similar flavor and would be a great substitute in this recipe for Potstickers withRadish Salad.
Sugar Snap Peas – The peas are almost gone already.  They went to school as snack today and got gobbled up as the share was being put away.
Zucchini – This Grilled Curry Zucchini, Red Bell Pepper, and Arugula Salad looks like it would
make a great summer main dish.
How much of last week’s share did you get through?
I still had my bunch of Kale, 1 Scallion, 2 Garlic Scapes, and some Basil and Cilantro.
Items of Interest this Week...
Garlic Scapes
Our CSA Newsletter shares the following about Garlic Scapes...
These are the green curly Q stems. They grow out ofthe top of hardneck garlic varieties. You can chop the whole thing up and use just like garlic. It has amilder taste than a garlic bulb.
