I’m puppy-sitting for a friend who’s out of town so he offered me his CSA and a coworker did the same. So I brought home a lot of free food today. Score!
There were some leeks! (More soup next week, maybe?)
There were lots of carrots! Last night I steamed a bunch of carrots. Eating raw carrots during college and at work had made me forget how tasty cooked carrots are. If you haven’t had them in a while, you should check it out.
Kale overload! This is Red Russian kale.
Broccoli! I have a vegetable chowder recipe that I really want to try that has broccoli in it.
Also some garlic. I need to roast a few heads (and try out that cool garlic-peeling trick) soon!
These brussels sprouts came on the stalks! I had to snap them off with my thumbs. This yielded a large mixing bowl full, so I’m super-exciiiited.
Butternut squash! These are a petite variety and apparently have a really brightly colored flesh.
And lastly, a new variety of squash called Sugar Dumpling. They are evidently (and fittingly) very sweet.
