This week's box contains:
- Acorn Squash
- Red Chard
- Orange Carrots
- French Fingerling Potatoes
- Red Cabbage
- Tokyo Market Turnips
Tomorrow I run the Nike Women's Marathon. Given my half-hearted training this time, I actually plan to run/walk the entire race. Regardless, its 26.2 miles and does take a decent meal the night before to set one up for successful completion of the distance. The tradition is a "pasta feed" -- a meal for race participants consisting of pasta, meat sauce, and garlic bread. A lot of carbohydrates and a little bit of fat and protein, along with plenty of water. My dinner tonight was French fingerling potatoes, roasted with Piment d'Espelette
and Nicolau Farms Chevre
. For breakfast tomorrow it's a double serving of McCann's Irish Oatmeal
, steel cut, with marmalade.
My plan for most of the rest of the vegetables is to make a large batch of Minestrone
soup, tossing in the leeks from last week, carrots, turnips, celery, onions, red chard, and perhaps some tomatoes.
There continues to be a mounting pile of both carrots and red cabbage. Ideas welcomed ... especially for the cabbage.
