Fresh Picks (Aug 21)


This week everything we received was local – Napa Cabbage, Beets, Broccoli, Arugula, Cucumbers, Roma Tomatoes, Onion, Zucchini and Basil.

The Broccoli was steamed right away for the twins. They gobbled it up like it was candy.

The Napa Cabbage was used in an Asian Cole Slaw along with the Cucumbers and some of the basil.

I tried the Arugula under a lentil salad and it was too bitter for my taste. I’m still trying to figure out the best use of this stuff when it comes my way.

The Zucchini was grilled one night, seasoned simply in olive oil, salt and pepper.

Onion was thrown in with the rest of the onions that seem to get used up god knows how. Tonight I reached for one to make Ree Drummand’s Chicken and Noodles. Maybe even this one pictured above.

Beets were roasted and dressed simply with balsamic. These particular beets were pink with white speckles. I love how they deliver different types, the supermarket always carries the standard, dark cherry red variety.
