CSA 2010: Week 2

Time to get out the salad recipes!

This week's share included:

3 heads of lettuce (green leaf and red leaf)
1/2 lb. spinach
1/2 lb. arugula
1 pint strawberries

As usual, the strawberries are already gone. We ate them unadorned at lunch and dinner. They were utter perfection. I figure there's no point in hoarding them when they're at their best freshly picked. Ryan had better watch out- he used to have dibs on the berries but now that Aiden has discovered how delicious they are, Ryan has competition! Aiden scarfed down berries as fast as I could cut them up for him today.

The lettuces are HUGE. I bought lots of salad ingredients at the grocery store today, so we'll see what I can come up with this week. When we were walking to the strawberry field, we passed a huge bed of all kinds of lettuces, which I'm sure we'll be receiving in our share in the weeks to come. Usually I manage to get through a few weeks of 3+ heads of lettuce/week before I start to lose steam and tire of seeing bags of greens filling both crisper drawers plus several shelves of the fridge!
