Today was the first CSA pickup (turned delivery – this is what happens when you’re friends with the farmer and schedules get hairy) for my Coeur Et Sol farm share. Folks, it’s beautiful.
The share was: bolted bok choy, French breakfast radishes, Salad turnips, radish microgreens, kale, half a dozen eggs, a lettuce mix, 2 heads of mini lettuce, and bread from Swampy Vale Farm.
Tonight, for dinner, we had a salad that consisted of the salad mix, salad turnips, radishes, and a mix of raisins, craisins, and dried blueberries from Trader Joe’s. We had slices of the bread toasted in the broiler, buttered, with radishes and sea salt on top. We topped that off with the last of the soups that were lingering in the freezer from last season – Hubby had escarole & bean, which is his favorite, and Little Chef and I had Vegetable Soup Base fleshed out with white beans and mushrooms.
To celebrate, we also had Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. YUM.
Tonight, I prepped breakfast for tomorrow. I sauteed garlic and the greens from the radishes and salad turnips, then added scrambled eggs with salt, pepper, paprika, and parmesan to make a fritatta.
It’s been a satisfying beginning to the season, and it’s only been 8 hours. Hooray!
Oh, and I dressed the part this evening.
