Another killer box from my farmer. Beets and onions went into the stock pile. Tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeno peppers and onion became fresh salsa which I put on beans, rice and topped with avocado. The blueberries I was so excited for! The last time blueberries were in the box I gave that box away because I was on vacation. They were delish! I’m always so sad when blueberry season ends, it’s a long wait until they are available again. Luckily for me I bought 30 pounds of frozen blueberries to get me through the winter. I had already stocked up on raspberries and bananas and wasn’t sure I could fit it all into my freezer at once. It wasn’t easy, but eventually it all fit.
Back to the CSA box, butter lettuce was such a nice change from the endless red leaf lettuce. I made lettuce, tomato, sweet onion, avocado sandwiches with gluten free Portuguese buns from the farmers market. It’s been about 7 years since I’ve sandwich in a bun, gluten-free baked goods have come a long way. Next week I think I’ll buy some more. More carrots, some of these I juiced, the rest went into stir fries. Finally there was kale. I actually didn’t know what it was! I thought it might have been some sort of collard, but it’s flat leaf kale. It seems all I ever see in the stores is curly leaf kale, I figured that just how all kale was. I chucked it all into my morning smoothie.
