Things have been quiet around here because we’ve been out of town. My friend Donna picked up our produce last Thursday, and I won’t have a new haul until this Thursday, so things will continue to be quiet. I just wanted to let you know that I was still alive and fill you in on what happened with last week’s produce. I don’t have any exciting recipes to share as these were basic, use what you have and clean out the fridge types that were just okay.
Last week I brought home the following:
1 head of lettuce
2 garlic scapes
1 bunch of swiss chard
1 head of pok choi
1 bunch of carrots
I used the lettuce in a salad with avocado, broccoli, edamame, raisins and leftover peanut sauce for dressing. It was pretty good.
I still have 1 1/2 scapes in my fridge. They were looking a little tough, but I may try to use them yet.
The chard and pok choi were used in this meal.
I used the carrots today in a quinoa pilaf that made for a quick lunch but was nothing to write home about.
I’ll be back Thursday with a new collection of veggies and hopefully some better recipes to share! What are you all making with your summer produce?
