Welcome to Fresh Foods Wednesday #82!
I gotta tell ya – getting a whack of new fresh veggies every week is QUITE exhilarating! With my previous CSA – Saanich Organics – on Vancouver Island, we had signed up for a box every 2 weeks which meant we had time to forget about items and they’d go bad because I would think “oh, I have time to eat that – I’ll have something else instead today”.
Now that I have a new box each and every week from Farm City Co-Op in Vancouver, there is no time to waste! Now I’m all like, “I gotta eat that because I’m getting a crap ton more on Wednesday!”. So I’m ripping through my box (ouch) and am super stoked to be eating so many vegetables each and every day. It sure is easy when they’re already in the house so my weekly menu planning just got more simple. And who doesn’t love that??
This week I got:
- Purple beets with beet tops;
- Kale (which is fabulous sauteed with butter, salt and pepper btw);
- Savoy cabbage;
- Red radishes;
- Sunflower shoots;
- New baby Potaters (uber excited for these).
One last note before we get to the link up… Today and tomorrow are your LAST DAYS to get in on the sweet SPQR action! If you want to enter your comment to win a copy of the new cookbook SPQR: Modern Italian Food & Wine (inspiration & ridiculously good scratch Italian food), you gotta gets to it now. You can do so here – it only takes about 30 seconds. Winner will be announced Friday morning after I’ve had my coffee and probably an incredible bourbon soaked cherry mash-up on toast. Mmm… bourbon cherries on toast…. (insert drooling, foodgasm Homeresque sound here).
