Box Contents August 14, 2009: What to do with cabbage...

This week's box contains:
  • Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Torpedo Onions
  • Red Beets
  • Lettuce (romaine and red butter)
  • Cabbage
  • Cherry Tomatoes
On hand from weeks past, we still have green onions, red cabbage, golden beets, carrots, red leaf lettuce, and a bit of arugula.

I'm always a bit challenged with cabbage. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but always struggle with what to do with it to consume a full head on my own as Sean's not much of a fan. Being of Polish origin, there's lots of family recipes to consider, but vegetarian options amongst them are few and far between. Google turned up braised cabbage, coleslaw, kimchi, sauerkraut, cabbage rolls, etc. As always, vegetarian is absolutely possible, but not de facto. In addition, many of the recipes involve braising -- which is not all that appealing in 77 degree weather.

Given that tonight's plan is to celebrate Sean's 50th birthday, I settled on something to serve as a side for grilled food:
The rest of the menu remains to be seen ... besides the birthday cake of course!
