What I’m Doing With My CSA Shares: Week 2

Here’s what we received this week:

  • Kale
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Butter Lettuce
  • Mint
  • Spinach
  • Scallions

This afternoon we took the two lettuces and the scallions, chopped them up, and combined them with other veggies to make a bunch of salads for lunch. We had enough for at least three days worth of salad lunches for each of us this week. Amanda will add chicken salad or tuna salad at work and I have some chicken to put in mine. 

I’ll use the kale and spinach in side dishes for dinner this week. I’ll probably sauté the kale with garlic, olive oil, onions, and hot pepper flakes. That will be a good side dish for some bratwurst we picked up today. I’ll make creamed spinach with the bag of leafy greens as a side for either pork tenderloin or some strip steak if it is on sale at Stew Leonard’s this week.

We’ll probably make a nice batch of mojitos or mint juleps with the fresh mint. Or toss a bit of it with some fresh watermelon.

Have a great week!
