CSA: Week 9

Okay, I’m falling behind in the blogging and for a while there we were falling behind in eating our CSA vegetables. Juliana keeps a list of our produce on a white board in the kitchen, and it was looking a little daunting last week. First let’s look at what we found in Saturday’s half share from Heartland Family Farms.

New this week are cauliflower and leeks. We already roasted the cauliflower and zucchini, an odd combination, perhaps, but we’ve been too busy to be more creative in the kitchen. Juliana roasted the beets too, and has had them for lunch on salad with blue cheese and balsamic vinegar.

On Sunday I had several friends over for a double brew day. These guys had done their part to finish the first keg of Saison that I’d made, so we decided to make another batch of that for the first brew of the day. The second brew was a hoppy wheat ale along the lines of Three Floyds’ Gumballhead. Some of their spouses/partners joined us for a dinner of homemade lasagna, salad, and wax beans.

Last night I whipped up a soufflé of asparagus, chard stems, and Gruyere cheese. I had a bunch of egg whites in the fridge after making ice cream sandwiches for BrewZaPalooza, and Juliana loves her some soufflé.

Now I’m thinking about making some hand pies. I think I’ll saute the chard leaves with garlic and roast some potatoes (from last week’s share) and onion and maybe squash too. By this weekend we should be all caught up with our vegetables and ready for a new haul on Saturday.
