For those of you not interested in fresh produce and the cooking thereof, you may skip down to my latest post on The Geography of Literature.
Although I have enjoyed all of our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) produce since it started for the season on May 12th, this past week's pick-up really made my eyes light up and my mouth water. It was also the first week of our fruit share.
Besides the usual salads and such, I've had a lot of fun playing with the produce this week. I made fava beans with mint that was delicious and made me wish I had gotten more favas. And then yesterday I made a fantastic warm German pototato salad using the new potatoes, the onions, and some of the dill from last week. I used the same dressing to wilt the radicchio. Yummy.
