Superfluous Yet Delicious

We Cook. We Eat. We laugh a lot.

Breakfast Porn

We spent the last week and a half using pea tendrils in everything. They are delicious, both raw and cooked, but by the end of the second bag we were getting pretty creative.

Enter this quick but delicious breakfast:

Salads, CSA Style

Salad

 

I know I said yesterday that I was going to make salads with chicken. But I was tired, and the chicken was at the bottom of the freezer. So I decided on poached eggs as the protein instead.

I washed and ripped apart the CSA lettuce, chopped up tomatoes from week 2, chopped grocery store carrots and celery, and ripped up some of the pea shoots. I added chopped feta from last weeks cheese share, and poached a few eggs to throw on top.

I then begged Carl to make a vinaigrette because he is awesome at them. This one was sesame oil and rice wine vinegar.

The salads were simple, yet delicious, and a great way to celebrate the end of the year. We paired them with a 90+ cellars granacha from Spain, which was much more to Carl’s taste than mine.

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.
