CSA: Week 2

Today is the last day of the second week of my CSA: Beets or turnips, Cilantro, Frisee, Garlic scapes, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Mustard greens, Radishes, and Scallions

On the first day, I tried roasting some turnips.  I have never really had turnips before, and I definitely haven’t cooked it before.  I tried combining the turnips with some garlic scapes (which are my new favorite vegetable), scallions and kohlrabi with some oil and other spices.  Meh.  I don’t like turnips.  They are bitter and boring at the same time.

The next day, I was in a moraccan mood.  I cut up the garlic scapes, frisee, scallions and some onions and began stir frying it with some turmeric and cinnamon.  After the onions had become transparent, I added two chopped chicken breasts and half a lemon worth of juice.  I have to say, it was quite delicious.  For an added bonus I threw it on top of some red leaf lettuce… yum.

Tonight, I wanted to get some mexican food.  I thought I’d try to make something mexican.  But, I had run out of chicken, and didn’t really know what I was doing.  I stir fried some rice with garlic scapes, scallions, frisee.  I added cayenne pepper and cumin and some cheddar cheese.  It was really dull.  I tried adding some tuna to get some kind of something.  Still kind of dull.  Finally, I added some lime juice.  With that, it wasn’t half bad… Not great, but definitely edible.

And that’s the last meal.  I didn’t seal up my packages very well, so I did waste a good amount of the frisee (that stuff wilts quick!).

I can’t wait until tomorrow for the new adventure!
