It sure was cold picking up the produce this morning. Here’s what I brought home.
- Goat’s milk soap with Romance scent
- Asian turnips
- Lavender-lemon verbena-rose geranium sachet
- Apples (2 lbs)
- Pecans (1 lb)
- Sweet potatoes (2 lbs)
- Leaf lettuce (8 oz)
- Bordeaux spinach (6 oz)
- Romaine lettuce (16 oz)
- 1 dozen eggs
- Chard (12 oz)
- Chocolate-raspberry-pecan muffins
Tired of salad yet? Me, neither. The little radishes were great salad additions last fall. We didn’t know we liked radishes till then. The Asian turnips aren’t bad, either. They’re mild, and I just slice them up with the radishes for salad fixin’s. In terms of greens, we’ll start on the leaf lettuce first and then alternate with the spinach and the romaine. I’m not planning on mixing them because I like the distinct tastes.
I’m going to try to make apple rings with a couple of the apples again. And I’m definitely making candied pecans. They’ll be great for snacking and on top of sweet potatoes and spinach salads and ice cream.
I am very happy to have eggs again. We made French toast which used up half our eggs from the first delivery. I’m not eager to do that again. We’ll have scrambled eggs and lots of baked treats this time, I hope.
Here’s an interesting page with kale and chard recipes. Our chard will wind up in something like these later in the week.
The soap and sachet both smell lovely. I tied the sachet to the lamp over my bed in the hopes of sweet dreams. Even my husband likes the smell.
I was very strong and did not eat a muffin while I was taking pictures. I can tell you they’re very moist, though. We plan on having a couple for dessert tonight.
