Here’s what I expect to be picking up from the CSA tonight:

  • 1 Bunch Kale
  • 2 Sweet Onions
  • 1 Bag Red Potatoes (3 lbs.)
  • 1 Bag Pea Shoots
  • 1 Bunch Young Orange Carrots
  • 1 Head Green Cabbage
  • 2 Leeks
  • 1 Bunch Curly Parsley
  • 2 Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 1 Head Red Romaine
  • 1 Bag Apples

Man, I am loving having these bags of apples around the last few weeks. I’m chopping them up and throwing them in salads, oatmeal, sandwiches, cereal, even with roasted squash and yams. They make great snacks at work, too (ALMOST cancelling out that bag of candy corn I bought the other day). And I even made a quick and dirty cobbler the other night.

I need some help though, with some of the other stuff I’m getting this week. Kale, I have mastered and now love. But I don’t really know what a pea shoot is, let alone what to do with it. And my search for stuff to do with leeks hasn’t yielded much beyond a whole variety of leek soups–which I’m sure are lovely, but I am so not a that kind of soup kind of girl. I kind of want to carmelize a leek, but don’t really know how, what flavors to use, or what to do with it next. HELP ME INTERNETS!
