Because folks are scared by turnips (why, I don’t know) I managed to collect three bunches this week when Mariquita dropped off their boxes. And one dish I plan to make is roasted turnips with green garlic slurry, featured in last week’s newsletter.
We also found Broccoli, Lamb’s Quarters, Hearts of Little Gem Lettuce, Hamburg Parsley, Erbette Chard, Yellow Chantenay Carrots, Red Beets, Red-bearded Scallions and Arugula.
Here is my menu plan for the week of April 2:
(Meatless) Monday: Erbette Chard Frittata (not sure the kids will go for this!), roasted beets, roast turnips with green garlic slurry, arugula and little gem lettuce salad
Tuesday: Sauteed red cabbage and sausages (last week’s box), steamed broccoli, arugula and little gem lettuce salad
Wednesday: Taco night, sauteed lamb’s quarters (might try this green taco recipe)
Thursday: Lyfe Kitchen’s Chimichurri Stuff from CostCo
Friday: Takeout and Trashy TV
What is on your menu plan this week? Any special Easter items you are planning?
