CSA Week 3
Picked up CSA Week 3 tonight!
Here is what I have:
1 bunch swiss chard
1 bunch lettuce
small bunch radishes
small bunch white larger radishes (?)
1 small butternut squash
small bag of green beans
small bunch of scallions
2 small green bell peppers
2 hot peppers
3 tiny patty pan squash
3 tiny summer squash/zucchini
2 mystery roots
I need help identifying the following:
First, I have these two mystery roots---I have no idea what they are. Any ideas?
I still have swiss chard from last week, so I will cook both bunches together tonight.
My husband has not yet had the pleasure of the successful radish chips recipe or the super fresh green beans, so Friday night I will probably break out some frozen pulled pork bbq and serve radish chips and green beans on the side.
The patty pan squash and summer squash/zucchini will be cooked Thursday night either in a mini-caserole or shredded and in patties. The scallions may also be used in this recipe.
I will make salads for lunches and use the lettuce, tomatoes, and bell peppers.
I will save the butternut squash for next week when hopefully I will have another one.
That just leaves the mystery root (which needs to be identified before it can be cooked) and the hot peppers. I am not really a fan of hot peppers, but I am determined to use all of my CSA delivery, so I will brainstorm on this one.
Wednesday: not cooking (eating leftovers)
Thursday: Squash patties or caserole and finishing leftovers
Friday: pulled pork bbq with radish chips and green beans
Saturday: we have dinner plans out
Sunday/Monday: unsure, depends on the identity of the mystery root
