Thus Far

This year I am not splitting the farm share which means that in a few short weeks I will be inundated with food.  However, the first few weeks are always easier to deal with.  Way back when I first joined the CSA, my half of the first week share was enough for one meal.  Not this time!

So far we have finished off the radishes, strawberries, bok choy, and oregano.  My mason stopped by with some lettuce and we've had some terrifically fresh salads.  I even made an Italian salad dressing with the fresh oregano.  I stir fried the bok choy with ginger and a hoisin based sauce.  The hamburgers last night had fresh rosemary mixed in with the meat.  I used the last of the oregano today to marinate some salmon.

Today I made kale chips using the bunch of red Russian kale.  I used this recipe for a spicy nut butter topping (I halved it for the amount of kale I had) and it is really tasty!  Hopefully that will help satisfy my craving when I need something crunchy.

What's left - a few more fresh herbs, two Hakurei turnips and mustard greens.  I plan to use the cilantro in a day or two to make guacamole and will probably dry the sage, rosemary and dill that are left.

The mustard greens will get taken care of by the rabbit.
