everybody leaves if they get the chance, and this is my chance

CSA Week 5:

.5 poinds shell peas
1 bunch curly parsley
1 bunch young onions
1 head broccoli
1 pound 2 pounds zucchini
1 bunch purple kale
1 head lettuce

It was kale or chard; I was going to go with chard because I'm actually kinda getting tired of kale... but the kale was purple. Shallow, I know. Also I swapped out lettuce for zucchini. Probably the most exciting thing was getting to throw fresh scallions in everything, such as a fried rice (that also used peas and broccoli and the usual other stuff), as well as on some of the delicious salmon and whitefish we got from Acme Fish Fridays, the best deal in the city.

CSA Week 6:
1 bunch basil
1.5 pounds 3 pounds zucchini
1 bunch chiogga beets
1 bunch broccoli
1 head lettuce
1 bunch spinach
1 bunch Napa cabbage

Swapped out the lettuce for zukes again! Also, BASIL. Which meant PESTO. Made with pistachios instead of pine nuts, and also with some sautéed zucchini for some extra green.

The chiogga beets are fun, they're not just red but candy-cane striped inside. Still haven't eaten them yet but I'm looking forward to it. Sadly the greens are no longer good, but I've never been a huge fan of beet greens. Oh well.
