No picture this week, as I'm going to be rather frazzled and busy when I get home. I'm actually writing this from work, a cheat enabled by my CSA organization's posting box contents online several days before my box arrives.
- Asparagus (1 pound)
- Mixed baby lettuce (12 ounces)
- Chard (1 bunch)
- Pea greens (1 bunch)
- Radishes (1 bunch)
- Ruby grapefruit (4)
- D'Anjou pears (2 pounds)
- Fennel (1 bulb + greens)
- Golden Delicious apples (2 pounds)
- Nantes carrots (1 bunch)
- Spinach (1 bunch)
I've already got plenty of plans for the asparagus and pea greens. Half of the asparagus are going into risotto again (mmm...) and half are going into a stir-fry with the pea greens. The fennel will probably get roasted, either to eat on its own or to have with other veggies.
The fruit will obviously get eaten raw, or at least most of it will. I might poach some of the pears and make a tart. There's a pear and frangipane tart that I've been considering, and these pears would be delicious in it (even though I usually opt for Bosc pears for baking).
As for the rest, I haven't quite thought it through yet. I have two dinners planned, but beyond that...???? I'm still reeling a bit from this weekend, both because of all the food I ate and because I was away for three days. Plus, I'm finally ramping up my training to a finite volume (rather than "zero" or "negligible") so I currently find myself with significantly less free time than I had over the last few weeks. The last couple of days have reminded me how difficult it can be to do my training AND cook fresh, delicious food. I'm determined to do both, and to do them without sacrificing sleep. It will just take a bit of planning ahead--and probably many an early morning workout.
