Retrospective – 6/6/2009

I didn’t use much of the veggies this week. I am currently in Colorado visiting my Mom and my sister, Nancy, so many of the veggies got sent to DC with Fritz. Here’s what I used.

  • sugar snap peas – I sent half of these to DC and ate the rest raw.
  • mushrooms – Same as the peas.
  • fennell – This went to DC.
  • scallions – Salads, salads, salads.
  • garlic scapes – haven’t used these yet
  • Lettuce – more boston bibb and another variety – more salads
  • bok choy – sent to DC

Also, in my absence, Laurie and Jessica will be posting about this week’s share. Look for those posts in the next couple of days. Thanks, Laurie and Dr. Jess!

Retrospective – Week of 5/30

As promised, here is what we did with our first share.

Strawberries – 1 quart - These were used on cereal and french toast. Also just eating them plain is a delight!
Green Garlic – 2 cloves – One was used in a steak salad with arugula (will post link to recipe soon), the other was used in the aioli for the chicken roll ups. We also used the stalks to wrap hamburgers that we grilled. 
Shitake Mushrooms – about 1 pt - We used some in an omelette, and the rest in a pasta recipe.
Bok Choy – 1 head – Made Bok Choy and Broccolini with Sun Dried Tomatoes. Very tasty.
Boston Bibb lettuce – 1 head - Made salads, added it to tuna salad wraps during the week. Had a little left over.
Arugula – 1 bag – Made the two arugula recipes that are posted in the links, plus the steak salad recipe which will be posted shortly. Discovered that a little arugula goes a long way.
Mixed baby greens (beet and collard) – 1 bag – Sent some to DC with Fritz, where he used them in a pasta. I made Hearty Greens and Beans pasta from the Passionate Vegetarian cookbook using the greens and what was left of the arugula.

I used all but a few mushrooms and some lettuce.
