Miller with Veggies

  • Carrots
  • Erbette Chard
  • Rosemary
  • Gallegan Kale
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • French Fingerling Potatoes
I swapped out my lettuce for a second bunch of kale -- and what kale it is -- it is HUGE. Nice contrast to the carrots, which are very, very small. I can't wait to try them both.

I have two bunches of rosemary to consume, so looking at pesto:
Rosemary Pesto

1 c fresh rosemary leaves
8 garlic cloves
½ c olive oil
1 T sea salt
1 t pepper

Process rosemary and garlic in food processor until smooth, stopping once to scrape down the sides. Add oil slowly in steady stream. Add salt and pepper.
No firm plans yet for the chard, but certain it will be in the neighborhood of garlicky greens. Strawberries to the freezer for smoothies. Potatoes and squash roasted and tossed with rosemary pesto!

I don't know what Teresa did with last week's box, but am sure we'll hear soon.

I walked with the beagles to pick up the box tonight, just about 2 miles round trip. Miller, pictured here, is a canine intervertebral disk disease survivor. She can walk now, but can't go too far. Tonight she shared her doggie jogger with the veggies and didn't seem to mind.
