The Share

To be honest, I always took a pretty dim view of flowers in the share.  That changed today.  We got Arugula flowers in our boxes, and they are incredible.  The flowers are a lovely soft and nutty flavor, and the pods have this sharp pepper bite.  I am already so excited to use them!  We got some other stuff too…

The Haul:
Lettuce (God help me)
Swiss Chard
Basil
Arugula flowers
Turnips + greens
Beets
Carrots
Fennel
Green garlic
Spring onions

The Plan:
Salad with fennel and arugula flowers + open faced goat cheese sandwiches with same
Shrimp and chard with Octo-vin over Chinese noodles
Carrot bread (maybe finally I’ll find the time to do this)
Some sort of Italian casserole to use up the onion and basil
Turnip side dish – can’t decide exactly what yet
Beets get roasted and frozen in preparation for beet cake
Giant salad for Memorial Day BBQ with the neighbors

    I am so jealous of your arugula flowers! I think I have serious box envy in general. Although I would cry if I had to deal with that many turnips. (Although I kind of miss them now that we've finally run out of turnip pickles.)
