Box Contents: April 16, 2010

This week's box contains:
  • Leeks
  • Gold Chard
  • Cilantro
  • Oranges
  • Mystery (Strawberries)
  • Baby Fava Beans
  • Mystery (Orach)
We made fresh squeezed orange juice from the oranges and ate the strawberries out of hand for breakfast today.  With two sets of greens, and the remaining ingredients on hand, we're planning Hearty Greens Soup for dinner today or tomorrow.

I am looking forward to the fava beans.  They are lovely when you have the time to prepare them.  If you've not had the pleasure, it is a 3 step process: remove the pod, blanch the beans and remove the outer shell, then cook.  I like them best tossed with olive oil and salt.

As far as the rest of it goes, we've got another "not going to cook" week ahead.  Last week box contents are still resting comfortably in the refrigerator and the remains of this week's box will join them.  Weeknight cooking is not something we do well...
