Here’s what came in my second CSA box. Recipes for some of these items will be on the blog tomorrow!
Basil – I’m seeing lots of italian foods in my future! Did you know, basil is a spice that does better on the counter instead of the fridge. Just put it in a jar of water kind of like you would a flower, cover it lightly, and leave it out. It’ll keep longer. Not the most beautiful flower but it really does smell so good!
Lettuce, luckily we love salads around here. This is such a big head! We’ve had a great spring for lettuce growing and it really shows.
More green onions, we got green onions last week as well. Apparently, it’s been a great spring for them. We don’t eat a lot of green onions so I’m struggling with what to do with them. I don’t mind them as toppings for salads, soups, tacos, etc. But no one else likes them, so I have to find a way to hide them when I cook with them. Check back tomorrow and see what I came up with.
More strawberries, they didn’t last long. We ate them up within hours of getting them home. They’re so sweet and juicy!
One green pepper. It’s pretty large, and looks delicious!
Carrots, my 6yr old has been begging to make some carrot soup. So we did, come back tomorrow and see how it turned out!
