This week’s delivery
- seven-pepper chevre
- white carrots?
- chervil, oregano, and chives
The seven-pepper chevre is great. I’m not super-fond of hot foods, but the heat of the pepper plus the creamy, cool goat cheese is really nice.
Heard any reports of vampire rabbits rampaging through carrot patches? These pale vegetables definitely taste like carrots, but they look kind of spooky. At least they’re not parsnips. That would be really scary.
And the broccoli is delicious. Even the skinny stems are yummy raw.
- popping corn
- sweet potatoes
Always happy to see more popping corn. Try making it in the microwave.
The strawberries are already cut up and flash frozen. This batch looked a little rough; I wonder if we’re getting to the end of Florida strawberry season. And I wonder if we’ll even have a Georgia strawberry season this year, given the lack of spring sun until recently.
- spicy salad mix
I’ve made a couple of meals so far with my stuff. Wednesday’s supper was chopped up Roma tomatoes from last week cooked with garlic, onion, olive oil, chives, and oregano.
There was supposed to be shrimp in there, too, but I left the defrosted shrimp in the fridge too long. It might have been okay – it didn’t smell horrible – but I tossed it in the woods anyway. I expect to be immortalized in raccoon song.
Instead, I added most of the seven-pepper chevre. It made a rich, creamy sauce, and we enjoyed it very much.
I served it over pasta and with a salad made of the romaine and these toppings:
Tonight we had some Easter leftovers with steamed veggies.
I steamed the broccoli, a white carrot, and some onions and then topped them with some chervil and dill. Pretty yummy except the onions were too strong.
I also made a large pot of Pioneer Porridge last night. This is definitely the way to go with the porridge. It takes so long to get to the right consistency that it makes more sense to make a big batch. Plus, it heats up fine in the microwave. I use half milk and half water to make it a little creamier.
Looking forward to more strawberries tonight and popcorn tomorrow!
