Drum Roll Please.....



Today marks my second CSA share pick up and being the eager beaver that I am - I wanted to share with you dear readers what Farmer John gave us this week! I had to take two photos so you could see all of the goodies I picked up. In no particular order: young romaine lettuce, butter lettuce, arugula with flowers, turnips, golden and red beets, mizuna, 3 avocados, mint, chamomile, spinach, kale, young onion, and radishes.
This weekend I will definitely be making some yummy salads and I'm going to experiment with the turnips. I've never cooked with them before! But it's all good, after watching Disc 1 of Punky Brewster's Season One, I was reminded that I have PUNKY POWER!!!! Keep your eyes peeled for some fantastic posts this coming week!

    I love me some turnip chips! Use a mandolin to slice thinly, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper an bake in the oven to your liking!

  5. Also, you can make a devilish gratin with them, maybe mix in a few potatoes.
