The Share

The one unalterable rule of CSA cooking is that if one week you suddenly get a great idea about how to use a vegetable, and you are hoping it will show up in the next week’s share, you will never see that vegetable in your share again.  Ever.  Last week, late, I had a really brilliant idea to grind bok choi up into a Chinese noodle pesto.  So of course, here’s what I got.

The Haul:
Lettuce
Chard
Cabbage
Broccoli
Radicchio
Carrots
Beets
Turnips
Leeks
Fennel
Cilantro (2 huge bunches)

The Plan:
Cilantro Miso Pesto (I will find a way to grind up veggies this week!)
Spicy Broccoli Pasta
Meat Pie
Breakfast Crepes with Sweet Carrot Sauce
Beet Ravioli, or maybe Beet Bread

My mom is coming into town at the end of this week, so I’m thinking the meat pie will be what I serve her.  I’m also planning to use it as the dumping grounds for everything not obviously used up in the short plan above.  It will have the leeks, fennel, chard, and some carrot, and I will probably serve it with steamed cabbage on the side.

Also, I found a beet ravioli recipe that I’m dying to try, but I absolutely refuse to make my own pasta dough, so my making this recipe depends entirely on whether or not my girlfriend goes to the markets in Santa Barbara this weekend.  If not, the bread will be an excellent breakfast for me and the kids.
