CSA 6.8 and a Cookbook

DSC_0697 DSC_0698 DSC_0699

Our CSA this week: one bag of spinach, a bunch of cilantro, two bunches of radishes, some green garlic, kale, (a ton of) collards, and micro greens. It’s quite a heap of greens, and it’s going to take awhile to wrestle it all into the fridge.  I found a copy of Deborah Madison’s book Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America’s Farmers’ Markets at the used book store this week.  I had store credit, so I decided to get it for some fresh ideas for our weekly vegetables. Some of her recipes for greens include: Hearty Pungent Greens with Anchovies and Garlic, Chard and Cilantro with Noodle Nests (little fried noodle and cheese dumplings), and a simple Shredded Salad of Many Greens with a lemony dressing.  She also has a recipe for radish butter for radish sandwiches.  So I’ll try to cook through some of those this week and report back. Oh, the peonies bloomed overnight and John went out this morning and picked one for me.
