For whatever reason, I’m less enthused about this week’s CSA share than I’ve been about the others. I think I’m ready for the switch to fall vegetables (and sweaters!).
But beets did make their debut. Mike loves beets, which I typically roast. But these are pretty small, and wrapping them all in foil seems like a pain. Looks like it’s time to employ my well-seasoned Googling skills.
What else was in our share:
- green beans
- peppers — green, red and hot yellow ones
- Swiss chard
- mystery leafy green
I stir-fried boneless, skinless chicken thighs tonight, so have already used the green and red peppers, the Swiss chard and the mystery leafy green. I still have no idea what that leafy green was, even after giving it a quick taste before tossing it in at the end with the chard leaves. I finished the dish with a little Soyaki from Trader’s Joe’s, and served it over Ramen noodles, minus the spice packet. Don’t judge me — we were out of rice.

Our garden is insane with tomatoes, basil, and hops. Can you use hops for anything other than beer?
Hmm … I don’t know! I’ll ask around. However, I am working on a post for an amazing tomato tart, which I’ve always made to use up all the basil and tomatoes, that I’ll put up soon!
