Box Contents July 15, 2008

This week's box contains:
  • Lettuce (red leaf, green leaf, or butter)
  • Mystery of Fruit
  • Leeks
  • Cabbage or cauliflower
  • Bok Choy
  • Beets or red chard
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Summer Squash
  • Gypsy Peppers
I'm on the road this week, so my friend David picked up the box. We should hear from him about how he used shortly.

Remnants of last week's box is still hanging around. We used the spinach and the zucchini on our grilled pizzas and the new potatoes for a pesto potato salad. The strawberries molded quickly, so hit the compost pile early this week. I'm going to try a Mexican-inspired pesto with the cilantro and will likely roast the turnips with a bit of truffle salt.

  1. We tried the cilantro pesto and it was good, though a few changes were needed:

    - double or triple the chiles
    - add a bit more olive oil
    - add extra cilantro

    This pesto was great on grilled corn.
