CSA Week Three

This week I received a plethora of greens, which included lettuce the size of a baby!  Here is what I got:
-The mother of all green lettuce
-Swiss Chard
-Snow Peas
-Dozen Eggs

I am so excited to have my first batch of blueberries of the season.  I spent the majority of my time last night looking for something special to do with them.  Sometimes the best thing to do is to just eat them.  They are the perfect snack.  Tonight though, I am making blueberry pancakes.  I can't think of anything better than breakfast for dinner.  I was thinking of making blueberry kuchen, but I want to save that for the Fourth of July, so I have settled on trying blueberry frozen yogurt.  Hopefully I will get more blueberries next week so I can make more treats.
As for the gooseberries, I want to try my hands at gooseberry pie, but still searching for a good recipe and  I also need to stop by the Green Market and see if they have more.  One pint just isn't enough for pie.
I also see a lot of salads in my future!

Last year I made garlic scape pesto.  Click here for the recipe.


  1. Did you miss the cilantro? Made a lovely sauce for salmon burgers with cilantro, parsley, lemon zest and yogurt. Love your photography! Fun blog.

  2. I am actually one of those people who hate cilantro! Just the smell of it makes me gag, so I placed it in the swap box :) Your salmon burgers sound tasty.
