What's in the box? 10/12/2011

So here is the list of wonderful ingredients in this week's Eatwell Farm box:

Cherry Tomatoes OR Tomatillos
Shady Lady or Roma Tomatoes
Italian Large Leaf Basil
Romaine Lettuce
Yellow Onions
Baby Leeks
Red Russian Kale
French Breakfast Radishes

I really looking forward to another arugula salad with sliced pears, toasted pine nuts and shavings of lavender ricotta salata, all tossed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  We ate that up really quickly last week.  Baby leeks - oh yeah, leek and goat cheese tart a la Alice Waters.  Radishes and tomatoes with the romaine lettuce for another great salad.  Russian Kale with sauteed yellow onions makes a great vegetable side dish for some grilled lamb chops.  The basil again will be made into pesto - I'm loving all the great pesto pizza we've been having with fresh mozzarella and fresh slices of tomato on top.  The eggplant may find it's way into a parmesan this time.  Of course the parsley will probably end up in a salad and any leftover will be dried and used in the many soups to be made this winter.  The apples will join some of their kin from a week or so ago to become the first apple crisp of the season.  Served warm with a generous dollop of yogurt--it's a great dessert.
