Week #1

So here's how it'll work. I'll list this week's CSA share and color code the items according to my familiarity with them. Green indicates I can figure out what to do with it without any problem. Yellow means that I think I can find a recipe somewhere. Red = "help!" Throughout the week, I'll try to post my progress as I work my way through the share.

This week's CSA take:

Pea Shoots
Hakurei Turnips
Vitamin Greens

I went to Wegman's for some non-produce items and ended up picking up some locally grown strawberries, rhubarb, and carrots, along with some fennel (my new favorite vegetable) and some potatoes. There is definitely a strawberry rhubarb crumble in our future, and I think the carrots and fennel will end up in a slaw-like salad with the kohlrabi, later in the week.

In just a few minutes, the kale will go into this recipe and will accompany some steaks that have been marinating in teryaki. One of my favorite things about summer is that we use the grill almost nightly. This year, we have our newly purchased charcoal smoker grill for when we have more time and don't want a quick meal from our propane grill. We also purchased this camping burner, mainly to use later in the summer for canning, but I'd like to experiment with cooking entire meals outside and this will aid in that endeavor.
