So, I picked up my second CSA box of the season yesterday and OMG:
Um, WHOAH! Red Leaf Lettuce, Garlic Scapes, Swiss Chard, Radishes, Broccoli, Beets with their Greens, and Bok Choy!
Chard, Radishes, Broccoli, Beets and Choy
FIVE HEADS OF RED LETTUCE.
Beets & Choy
That gorgeous red leaf lettuce!
So, I had no idea what to do with five heads of lettuce (it doesn't even last overnight) so I immediately washed it all and gave two heads to my neighbor!
Today, I cooked the Beet Greens and Swiss Chard for another Green Leek Pie since we can't stop talking about the first one. I used lots of scapes instead of the leek this time (though I did have a piece of leek left from last week that I threw in).
Beet Greens! They taste like how they look: just like Swiss Chard :) Tasty!
Swiss Chard on top of the Beet Greens. A Vegetable Volcano!
After the explosion.
So, I'll finish that pie later. The crust is chilling in the fridge now.
Oh, and I had a wicked craving for my Blood Orange Banana Bread, and I had tangerines in my fridge and three super overripe bananas on my counter, so here she is:
CSA friends, how is it going with your boxes??
