First Box of the 2010 CSA Season!

Hard to believe the winter hiatus is at its close!  We pick up our first box on Friday, contents scheduled to include:
  • Savoy Cabbage
  • Adolescent Lettuces
  • Escarole
  • Butternut Squash
  • Fennel
  • Leeks
  • Portuguese Kale
  • Red Spring Onions
  • Baby White Turnips
  • Chantenay Carrots
Without question I'll be roasting some of these vegetables.  I'm craving the "roasted fennel tartines" from last season; given our current orange crop and the fact that we've got escarole in this week's box too ~ I may adapt the Escarole, Fennel and Orange Salad from Epicurious slightly by roasting the fennel and swapping balsamic for the white wine vinegar.

Another recipe of interest is Portuguese Kale and Potato Soup, also from Epicurious, subbing the baby white turnips for the potatoes.

As usual, no idea what to do with the lettuce.  In fact, no idea what "adolescent" lettuces are!  If they look interesting, I'll bring them home.  If not, first swap of the year...
