surrealestate: (Sentient Broccoli)
[personal profile] surrealestate
On Monday, I did a bunch of cooking to clear out the backlog of stuff in preparation for a new share on Tuesday. I find it much easier to think of things to cook given limitations than when I can do anything I want. So I used most of the big cabbage for kimchi along with the rest of the carrots, turnips, and green onions. Then other onions along with the rest of the cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower turned into a Thai red curry since I had the rest of an open can of coconut milk. And since I also had the remainder of a can of tomatoes as well as plenty of fresh ginger (frantically acquired for the kimchi), I made chana masala. The two dishes worked together far better than I would have thought, too.

I made more scape & basil pesto and we also grilled pizza so I grilled the remaining garlic scapes for grilled garlic scape pesto. I'll just say OMG. I mean, grilled garlic scapes are amazing, so eat those, but if you have a crapton of them try using grilled in pesto.

Oh, also also a big batch of zucchini/cousa fritters with the remaining squash.

And then we got all this stuff!

Week 5

  • 6 Cucumbers
  • 2 heads Red Cabbage
  • 2 heads Broccoli
  • 2 lbs Fava Beans
  • 2 lbs Kentucky Wonder Beans
  • 2 bunches Arugula
  • 4 lbs Yukon Gold New Potatoes
  • 2 bunches Red Spring Onions (+tops)
    = 29 lbs

Bonus veggies from the in-house drop-off was a bunch of harukei turnips and a bunch of radishes, which went straight to [ profile] beowabbit. And I baked a loaf of rolled bread with the scape pesto to share with the farmer. Also met more non-coho neighbors. Tuesdays have turned out to be pretty good days.

Since Tuesday, I haven't cooked much since there were so many leftovers to nom on and just lazy, I guess. I did do a big batch of Manjula's green (wonder) beans and peas, though, and also threw in the Fava beans. Might do Manjula cabbage, too. Arugula pesto. Hm. Still have tons of onions, too. Ideas? Or maybe we need more sauerkraut, I'll have to check.

Which, crap, reminds me that I haven't checked the kimchi yet at all! Eep. Better do that now.
