Week three: greens and some baby vegetables

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

Greens are still the thing, but relief is on the horizon.

  1. Salad greens.
  2. Braising greens.
  3. A handsome bunch of baby vegetables: beets, turnips, and carrots.
  4. Sugar snap peas.
  5. My lagniappe, herbs: mint, thyme, and sage.

I cooked a strip of bacon, saut̩ed the baby vegetables in the fat, added stock to almost cover, and reduced until barely a glaze. Topped with the bacon, crumbled Рdelicious.

Week two: greens mostly

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

I picked up the share early Saturday morning. A very atmospheric scene with threatening weather and Boulder Creek very high.

  1. A big bag of mixed salad greens.
  2. An equal amount of beautiful spinach.
  3. More killer turnips, very small ones this time.
  4. Radishes! Small and luminously beautiful, they are already gone but were indescribably delicious.
  5. My lagniappe: snap peas. As sweet as candy, only a few made it into a salad – the rest were devoured immediately.

Nothing fancy this week, there is a wedding to contend with! I imagine all of this will end up in salads, but we might have to fob off some of the greens to unsuspecting relatives to avoid waste.
