Cheesy Goodness

20130801-200450.jpg

 

The burrata from the farmshare a few weeks ago was delicious on tomatoes with dried basil, salt, and pepper sprinkled on top. Burrata is mozzerella-textured on the outside, and creamy on the inside, so the mix of textures lent itself well to the crunch of the tomato and the pop of the seasonings.

CSA: Week 4

There was no pickup for Thursday members last week, but Tuesday members got a share, so this week’s Thursday share was extra big, as will be a few others to make up the difference.

 

Week 4

Blueberries and Raspberries for the fruit, I chose red over black, because that’s the way I roll. Burrata for the cheese share.

That tomato would like you to know that it is really the english shelling peas that I was supposed to get the week before last. The farm delivered 1/6 as many as promised, and apparently had a huge rot problem, so those of us who didn’t get peas, got tomatoes this week.

Onions, carrots, cucumbers, snap peas, summer squash, and a head of lettuce round out the share. I see a lot of salads in our future this week.

Cheese Share!

I failed to post a picture of last week’s cheese share, so here it is:

CSA Week 3

I still have a recipe from last week’s CSA to post, as well as an update as to what we used all the yummy stuff for, but the last week of school has been kicking my butt.

Today was the last day for teachers, so I get to sleep in tomorrow!

When I got to the depot, they were short volunteers, so I grabbed an apron and manned the small veggie station. The cool thing about volunteering is that if you are there at the end, you often get handed extra food: stuff from shares people didn’t pick up, stuff that the soup kitchen won’t take, etc. So this week’s share is extra-big, which is good, because there is no share on July 4th.

On to the food!

Week 3

 

Actual Share: 1 Napa Cabbage, 1 Kohlrabi, Collard Greens as the choice, 1 bag pea tendrils, 1 head lettuce, 1 box strawberries, 1 box cherries, and a wedge of cheddar I forgot to put in the photo.

Extras: 2 bundles of kale, 1 bag of pea tendrils, 1 box of cherries.

Dinner tonight will be salads with chicken, last week’s feta, the lettuce, and pea tendrils.

CSA Week 2

Week 2

More strawberries, garlic scapes, fennel, bok choi, tomatoes, beets, and the cheese share started today!

The cooler said take 1 chevre and 1 feta, which I did. Unfortunately for me, and fortunately for Carl, I grabbed chipotle chevre instead of regular chevre.

I keep forgetting that red is nature’s danger color. Should have grabbed the blue label.

(C disagrees, and is quite happy with my mix-up)

Stay tuned for when we figure out what the heck we’re going to do with this week’s haul. I am looking for suggestions on what to do with fennel beyond soup, and what I can do with strawberries being grain free and not owning a blender.  (Please see the library page for the explanation of the great blender incident)
