Our regular farm share season has ended for the year (insert sad face) but we are super-lucky to be able to have three more deliveries before the end of the year! Our Farm Co-op offers a November share ( 2 deliveries ) and a December share ( 1 big delivery ) and also takes bulk orders…which I did not avail myself of this year as my root cellar type storage is pretty much nonexistent… and I also tuck things away and forget about them…
Here is the list of goodness for this delivery:
Potatoes (small ones, perfect for washing, quartering and roasting in olive oil with some herbs.)
Onions (little ones, yellow and red)
Kale…sliced fine, sautéed with olive oil, franks red hot sauce, salt and pepper until wilted – yum..
Eggs (love love love farm fresh eggs)
Shallots (hmmmm….I feel sautee’d something coming on)
Garlic (some of the biggest bulbs of garlic that I’ve seen that weren’t “elephant garlic” may try and roast a whole one of these)
Carrots – multi-color rainbow carrots, don’t even need to peel them, just scrub and eat!
Carrots – tiny little round carrots, with stems on (bonus for the girls, they love them w stems on) so sweet and yummy we ate half for dinner right after they came home, then the girls took them for lunch the next day and finished them off.
Boston Lettuce and mixed greens…no idea what is in the mixed greens but they are going to become salad … interesting flavors, definitely not what I usually make salad with!
Squash…acorn and butternut, how did we get so lucky, two!! Love squash…maybe soup?? at any rate, I brushed it with olive oil and roasted it, then tucked it into the fridge for dinner. Still have a few more left, yay!
Apples, mixed type but small, perfect size to slice up for the girls lunches
Brussel sprouts…to which Lily said; “is there bacon too?” B.Sprouts, halved & sautéed in the pan used to cook the bacon (with a little water at the end and cover to steam)…my kids love it, who knew?!
Cauliflower…this one will need to get used tomorrow…maybe roasted? Will have to look that up…
Love having a kitchen full of yummy things to cook!
