CSA Week 5

I'm a little late, but to make up for it I took a photo somewhere besides my stove!

CSA Week 5

This week:
Mustard Greens
Purple Kohlrabi
And our first tomato!

Last night's dinner was sourdough bread with a basil-mayo spread and sliced tomatoes, broiled for a couple of minutes in the toaster oven. What a nice way to celebrate July and the start of tomato (and basil) season! Yum. Most of the rest of the veggies are coming with us to Redmond, where my family will share them.

I think one of my favorite things about this CSA is looking at how beautiful vegetables are. I love chopping them up and looking at their color and the patterns inside and outside. I usually take the head of lettuce to Cory to admire before I start pulling leaves off. Nature is a pretty good artist.

I am going to have to do that next year. It looks so yummy!

My boss brought in sliced kohlrabi from her CSA box and gave me a bit to try. All I have to say is "BOY-O-BOY! That was tasty!". I'd love to try it in a stirfry!

Oh, you're right - it's kind of water-chestnut-y. I thought by itself it was kind of boring, but still good - like broccoli stems.
