Yesterday was a happy day, I got my first delivery of produce from these people (thanks to everyone that recommended them). We opted for the mixed box of both fruit and veggies and I am glad we did because I can only imagine what a veggie only box would look like. The concept is simple, the farm delivers fresh fruit and veggies to your door per your preference (we chose the twice a month plan). Now we are scrambling to find creative ways to cook our bounty. I took lot's of photo's last night that were supposed to grace the Blahg this a.m. of the harvest that was our delivery but those images are on my jump drive somewhere, but not here (figures).
Not a radish fan, but I have already had many suggestions from my classmates in our Souvenir Foto Class, I really liked my Argentinean classmate Flor's idea of eating them with lemon juice and sea salt (I do like my lemons). Some of the produce delivered was Swiss Chard, which I am really not familiar with but from my research last night we have to eat it stat or else it will be rubbish. I am going to try it sauteed with garlic ala Heidi from 101 Cookbooks this evening.
We will have to come up with ideas for arugula, I am thinking arugula pesto, which definitely has a bite, the only problem being that our food processor died and hasn't been replaced (I blame the economy and my mother, I like to blame her for most things). It seems the farm included an inordinate amount of bok choy, I found this chicken and bok choy recipe that looks pretty tasty (minus the 1/2 cup of bbq sauce, wha?) and since it looks like we won't run out of bok choy anytime soon maybe we should try this, this and this as well. A bushel of rappini which I have been craving was part of our pack, it's not for everyone it's on the bitter side, but I love it paired with Italian sausage (the chicken or turkey variety) sauteed with a little olive oil and garlic. Happy indeed.
