Creme tangerine and montelimat, a ginger sling with a pineapple heart

Catching up. Two weeks.

CSA Week 5:
1 bunch parsley
1 head lettuce
.5 pounds snap peas
1 pund shell peas
1 pound baby bok choy
1.5 pounds squash
.5 pounds spinach

Eh, I don't know what the best thing was this time. Probably pan-fried chicken-and-zucchini on top of couscous, seasoned with parsley, ras el hanout (twas an Xmas gift, working' though it slowly), and balsamic vinegar. I had a moment of "hey maybe let's make tabouleh" but eventually decided I was too lazy and we didn't have tomatoes anyway.

Oh, wait, the most exciting thing was actually the pea cake loosely based on this recipe, which we halved and put in a too-large pan, leading to one thin layer. At this old advanced age, I can now finally say I've made frosting from scratch.

CSA Week 6:

1 head lettuce
.5 pound snap peas
1 bunch swiss chard
1 cucumber
1 pound shell peas
1.5 pound squash
1 head garlic

Again, not the most adventurous week. I'm going to commit heresy and say the best thing was something I made for lunch– a stew-type thing with bacon, chard, beans, garlic, and various spices. Sorry mere_bagatelle. There were also other things, such as a repeat of the chicken-zucchini-couscous thing without the chicken, and pasta'n'peas.

Maybe this week I'll do something adventurous again. Maybe... bluh.
