Today’s farm share, my second-to-last of the season, included a sunshine squash and a savoy cabbage bigger than my head. What do I do with these? Suggestions are welcome.
Thank goodness for the internet, where I found recipes for the last share’s delicata squash and swiss chard. We’ve had kales and lettuces, beets and broccoli, tomatoes, green beans, and a bizarre, vegetable sea-creature whose name I found by searching “green weird cauliflower.” It’s proper name is Romanesco cauliflower.
I’ve been eating so healthily that I broke down today and bought a quarter pounder with cheese and ate it in the car. Life is all about balance.
Our refrigerator is bristling with carrots and apples, but I’m trying to store them separately. Evidently, if they’re kept too close together, one causes the other to become bitter. I have some relatives like that.
