What to do with the Eatwell CSA Box - 2/13/2013
Ah, another wonderful box from Eatwell Farm, this week we received -
Savoy Tat Soi
Hmmm, I've accumulated quite a bit of spinach and I think it is time to make some spinach and mushroom quiche with some gruyere or jarlsberg cheese. Yum. The quiche with an arugula salad containing toasted pecans, some tangerine sections and a garnish of pickled watermelon daikon radish sounds good.
The green cabbage and leeks will join some beets that have been languishing in the fridge along with carrots, potatoes and the daikon radish to make a pot full of borscht. I think I'll make some caraway onion rye bread to go with this hearty soup.
Romanesco with olive oil, garlic and penne will make a good pasta dish, while tat soi and broccoli will join some chicken breast for a stir fry.
I'm going to roast the butternut squash and then mash it to make a filling for cappellacci de zucca. I freeze these little pasta packages of butternut sweet goodness and later, when I want a quick and easy dinner, we boil some and top with brown butter and sage sauce and some homemade romano cheese.
It may be time for more BBQ'ed pulled lamb shanks cooked in the slow cooker all day and then served with a side of collards and some corn bread.
The lemons will be used to make a really tasty lemon and anise pound cake, great with a cup of tea in the evenings.
Tangerines and Navel oranges are great for Michael's lunches and snacking during the day.
Thanks, Eatwell Farm, for a great selection of seasonal fruits and vegies.
