Breezy Willow CSA – Week 2 in review

The plan:

Lettuce and Beet roots – Salad

Yellow squash, spinach, eggs РThe versatile and weekly frittata

Kohlrabi – Options I’m considered were fritters, slaw with fish tacos, roasting it like a potato, or raw with a bit of salt (especially the pink salt from costco that seems to make everything 100 times better).

Kohlrabi and Beet Greens – Pretty much anything is good with goat cheese, garlic and pine nuts. This is a fact.

Patty Pan Squash – I bought this once at a farmer’s market and I’m pretty sure I roasted it. This time I’m thinking indian spiced kabobs with grilled curried chicken.

Blueberries – obvious answer snacking, but in order to fit all the new vegetables in the fridge I had to evict a tuscan melon and a watermelon. Fruit salad it is!

What actually happened:

Blueberries and pumpkin bread – gone within 48 hours. I know, I’m shocked too.

Beet and Avocado Salad – roasted beets, had a rotten avocado. Tried in vain to make salad+roasted beets+guacamole happen..but it wasn’t a crowning achievement.

Patty Pan Squash – marinated shortly before grilling, eaten with quinoa and super tasty grilled chicken thighs that I marinated in a made up mix of lemon juice, greek yogurt, and an indian spice mix from penzeys.

Yellow squash, spinach, eggs – ¬† Frittata - what’s not to love?

Beet greens and Kohlrabi greens- the Kohlrabi greens were our first casualty. They started off limp, and only deteriorated from there. The beet greens are still looking good though, and I plan to add them to this weeks candy beet greens since it’s a better portion for four.

Any CSA casualties at your house?

    Our Challah bread got moldy really quick, I had to throw about 1/2 of it out!
    It was delicious, but Phill has been out of town since Sunday afternoon so it has mainly been just me with our share this week and there is only so much bread a girl can eat when she is too busy turning into lettuce.
