Farm Share Father's Day

As it seems to often happen, I did have to work today, but I stopped at the store on my way home and got a wee little lamb roast to cook for Father's Day.  While it was roasting, I fried some potatoes and garlic scapes in butter, pushed them to one side of the pan and fried half of the snow peas I got from the farm.  At the last minute, I threw some arugula on the potatoes and stirred it in until it wilted.  We also had a large salad of lettuce, arugula, spinach, radishes, turnips and snow peas.  I am working through that farm share, slowly.

Wonder of wonders, we discovered that the 8 year old will eat lettuce!  (Be careful not to mistake arugula for lettuce or it will end badly.)

Lastly, tonight I started the brine/ferment for the pickled mustard greens I'd been hoping to make from the greens I brought home from the farm share.  I really love reading Hank Shaw's blog.  He has so many unusual recipes and every one I've tried so far has been fantastic.  I'm hoping to meet him when he comes to Cambridge this fall on his book tour.

What's left?  Swiss chard, Napa cabbage, more garlic scapes, spinach and arugula from the farm, and a LOT of lettuce from our mason.  We've already had Korean barbecue in lettuce wraps, finishing up the cabbage kimchi I made last summer and sampling some of the field garlic kimchi I made a few months ago.  And salad.  A lot of salad.
