Admittedly, I did not get super exciting with last week’s community share. Partly because ’tis the season of salad greens but mostly because I was in this incredibly intense Crisis Prevention/Non-Violent Intervention training all week for work so by the time I got home I was wiped out. I did whip up a couple of things to share with you though!
As a reminder, here is my rating system for recipes:
First off, here is what was in my share for the week of June 4:
What I Made:
CSA Ingredient Used: Rhubarb
I used my mom’s recipe for banana bread and literally just added in some diced up rhubarb. It wasn’t bad but I definitely did not use enough banana or enough rhubarb so it was kind of bland. I want to perfect this recipe before I share it so this is just a solid B for now.
CSA Ingredients Used: Green Onion, Spinach
Okay, I know it’s *just* an omelet and a slightly runny one at that (I overloaded the cheese…) but here’s some facts.
1. I usually just put eggs and cheese in my omelet so adding milk, green onion, spinach, bacon pieces, and sausage crumbles brought a whole new level of flavor to a stand-by meal for me. DELICIOUS and oh-so-filling.
2. Nick and I made them together and I really like cooking as a team with him.
3. We also sat down and ate them together and since he works second shift and I work a regular 9-to-5 type job meals together at the table are rare.
That’s a winner in my book all around.
CSA Ingredients Used: Lettuce, Spinach, Radishes (from last week’s CSA)
Yep, just a salad. But a salad with actual FRESH greens is so far superior to the bagged salads I generally live off of. It’s a winner in my book. And I had some radishes left from last week so I got to add those in and sprinkle a little cheese and Ranch dressing (because I am definitely stereotypical Midwestern) and it was fantastic!
The rest of the CSA vegetables are preserved in the fridge to be used so I need to get busy! Next week I hope to have some more exciting recipes for you but honestly, I just can’t say enough good things about the quality of vegetables I am getting from my Community Share.
