I had thought that things would get less hectic over the summer, but I was wrong. I've decided that in addition to it being the 'Summer of Sorbet' (Anthony's idea), I am going to start blogging what I get in my CSA share every other week and the recipes I use. The first box came last week and was filled with the longest bunch of chives I've ever seen, giant green onions, spinach, lettuce, kale, arugula, sunflower sprouts and two big containers of strawberries. My camera is w/Anthony while he's on tour, so no photos this time around.
So far I've made a dressing with the chives, a millet stir-fry with the green onions from a recipe in Super Natural Cooking (note to self: not a huge fan of millet), a spinach salad with roasted hazelnuts and eaten a lot of strawberries.
In non-CSA related recipes, I made a really fantastic chocolate cake. The recipe came from the Every Day Dish dvd, which I was lucky enough to win. The recipe for this cake and also Dreena Burton's mint chocolate chip cookies are worth the price alone.
