We're running away to the desert. OK not so much running, as visiting, and we were invited. I'll be without internet access for a week or so, so I'm bringing books, some hand sewing and a positive attitude. We're also bringing the contents of our CSA bin because even desert visitors need fresh veggies.
Oh and these are completely unrelated pictures of our day at Oaks Park. And yes, that's my daredevil daughter riding the rollercoaster while Holden and I stayed on the safety of flat, non-turbulent ground.
She can only aspire (because she's too short to ride)
Anyway, here's what became of last week's veggies:
Scapes: Goat cheese + scape grilled pizza. Good in concept, but I did something entirely wrong with the scapes because they came out very, very not tender. Sad, because I think that was our only allotment.
Potatoes: Oven potato fries, a kid favorite.
Cauliflower: Sauteed with indian spices. YUM.
Basil: Pesto, and some in lentil pasta.
Everything else was either eaten raw in salads & such (lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, onions) or inhaled on the spot (strawberries, snap peas).
This week we received:
more peas + strawberries (yay!)
potatoes (yukon gold)
And...we're off. Have a lovely week everyone!!
