Oh hey farmshare started again. Two weeks so far, no pictures.

CSA Week 1:
1 bunch rugula
1 bunch kale
1 bunch radishes
1 bunch baby boy choy
.75 pound more? spinach
.5 pound salad
1 bunch turnips

I didn't pick this up myself, so list is approximate. Didn't do anything particularly new with this stuff; the old standby of spinach/orzo/feta/lemon served cold probably was the tastiest thing.

CSA Week 2:

1 bunch French breakfast radishes
1 bunch 2 bunches collards
.5 lb spinac
1 bunch baby bok choy
.5 lb snap peas
1 bunch beets
1 head lettuce

This week had something a little more exciting: namely, an ersatz ramen that used bok choy and radishes, along with store-bought onion, in a broth consisting of chicken broth, soy sauce, ginger/salt/pepper/five spice powder, into which an egg was dropped and served over egg noodles. The local grocery doesn't have soba or udon or anything, normally I don't care that they're unfancy but at least some Asian noodles other than instant ramen would be nice. Also made a kielbasa-bean-and-collards soup that, among other things, made use of some frozen tomato puree from all the way back in winter share. Most of which went right back in the freezer for another week. So that was nice.
