Play with ME!

Last night I picked up my second CSA bunch, and I am very excited. I also have to say that the radishes (not beets, doh) from last week were delicious! They taste like daikon (japanese white radish) and I definitely had a light bulb moment there... Oh and I had the collard greens the way Jan suggested, fried in bacon fat with more bacon. SO GOOD. Now that I'm not scared of them, maybe this week I'll try a healthier option. Or not. :) Here is this week's haul:
CSA Week 2
Thankfully the only think I really don't know what to do with is the kale. I'm sad there's not cauliflower this week though, I had wanted to make cauliflower gratin!
Mystery quilt fabric cut up
Here are my mystery quilt squares all cut up. Actually, I had run out of the super dark fabrics, so I'm visiting the quilt shop today. And here is how Lucy reacts to my taking photos of things on the floor...
Play with me please!

Lucy is too cute!

I love how your CSA gives you flowers with your box. I don't think I've ever been part of a CSA that does that.

Kale was my mystery vegetable, too. Thanks to my neighbors I made it up by just boiling leaves only (rip out the stems) in seasalty water for 3-4 mins, draining, squeezing and sauteeing with some olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

YUM.

Just prepare like you would chard, except boil it longer. Otherwise it has the consistency of hair.

NOT YUM.

Love your fabrics for the mystery quilt, much more adventuresome than mine. I did a kale tomato frittata when I got kale in the farm share. Turned out pretty good

I should eat more veggies. If I visit, will you make me some? :D As long as they're delicious and come with a side of lemonbars...

Ha ha! Bryson does the same thing anytime I get close to ground level, seems to think something fun (involving him) is about to happen! When I lay out my pilates mat he's always there to save himself a spot right in the middle :D

Lucy just wanted to make sure you included a photo of her toy. Cauliflower gratin sounds yummy; I'll have to do an online recipe search and try that, too. Your mystery quilt colors look like fun.

Every time I visit your blog I want to run out and get a corgi of my own!

You're lucky she doesn't just dive for those fabric pieces if you know what I mean. What a beaut she is.

I'm still wait-listed on that CSA, so we'll see if I make it or not before the end of this season. Looks like a lovely collection of veggies! Yum!
