Superfluous Yet Delicious

We Cook. We Eat. We laugh a lot.

Slaw

I made this last Tuesday, but sometimes I take a picture and then get distracted.

I still had some beets left over from week 2, and wanted to do something cold with the kohlrabi, as 90+ weather does not make me want to cook in my un-air conditioned kitchen.

So I looked up coleslaw recipes.

I used the kohlrabi, half the napa cabbage, the beets, and some grocery store carrots to make a fantastically colorful coleslaw that I then dressed with this recipe. I used some homemade mayo, and took it to a friend’s weekly potluck night, where it was happily devoured.

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.
