But after two long weeks of missing the box, we were rewarded yesterday! Here is what we got (and my thoughts on how I am going to use everything).
- green peppers
- Diva cucumber
- bottle onions
- sweet corn
- yellow watermelon
- giant kohlrabi
- new potatoes
- lacinato kale
The watermelon is already gone -- we had it for dessert last night.
The great thing about the garlic, carrots, and potatoes is that you don't need to be in any particular rush to use them.
I am going to roast some of the green peppers to have with chorizo and queso blanco quesadillas tonight.
More green pepper, slices of the giant kohlrabi, cucumber and a carrot or two will be part of my lunch tomorrow, alongside some hummus or dip (trying to get lots and lots of veggies to my new babe).
I am going to roast the last green pepper, the eggplant, and the bottle onions (along with maybe a squash and red pepper) for a "roasted ratatouille" to go with steak on Saturday night.
The corn on the cob is going to be devoured with cheeseburgers on Friday evening.
I have become totally addicted to new potatoes, boiled and served with only salt, pepper, butter and chopped parsley -- so simple and tasty. I am going to save these to have with seared halibut on Sunday night.
Cauliflower is always a tricky one for me -- probably best to turn in into some sort of Ina Garten-inspired gratin with gruyere sauce and some toasted breadcrumbs. Maybe Monday night with grilled chicken.
Which brings us to the last man standing -- the lacinato kale. What to do? What to do? I prefer kale in a soup so maybe I will make a brothy white bean and bacon soup with chopped kale for dinner on Tuesday (when it is supposed to be rainy and not ninety degrees).
