Fresh Picks (Apr 24)

This week: Artichokes, cilantro, lettuce, cauliflower, spinach, beets, and potatoes.

Potatoes were chopped into cubes, doused with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted in the oven. I tried them on the twins, they weren’t crazy about them so I ate the rest myself.

Lettuce got chopped into a salad.

I covered the beets in foil and baked them for a long time in the oven. When they were soft, I let them cool then peeled them, drizzled them with balsamic, salt and pepper. Gorgeous.

Cauliflower was baked into parmesan fries again. I can’t stop craving them. Sorry for being so boring.

I had a ton of cilantro. Luckily my husband loves it. I used it in guacamole. I made a simple salad of avocado and sliced tomatoes and squeezed lime on it. A little salt and pepper then chopped cilantro. I topped a grilled and mexican marinated flank steak & grilled vegetables with it.

I used most of the spinach in a pasta dish with crumbled Italian sausage, mushrooms and parmesan.

Artichokes were steamed and dipped in butter. Is there any other way?
