Already up to box #7 of the winter CSA season with Fifth Crow Farms. We had a lot of rain this last week which is much needed. However, I may be the only one hoping for a rainy March, well maybe except for the skiers who are looking forward to a nice spring ski season.
In our box this week we found 2 bunches of Russian kale, Carrots, Parsnips, Parsley, Artichokes,Purple cabbage, Baby lettuce and King City Pink dry beans. I wasted the carrots and parsnips Saturday night on a bad recipe I found in a cookbook. Bummer!
Here is my menu plan for the week of March 4:
Sunday: Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with lots of Kale, meatballs
Monday: Rotkraut and bratwurst
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday – chicken in slow cooker with salsa, refried beans (using the King City Pink dry beans)
Thursday: Slow cooker butter chickpeas, rice, naan
Friday: Take out and Trashy TV
