CSA week 2

The first helping from our CSA was a little challenging for us... we never eat radishes, swiss chard or turnips. We made scrambled eggs with scallions, (incredibly delicious) country rhubarb cake, Chinese noodles with swiss chard and scallions, vegetable soup with turnips, carrots, onion, green onion, fresh oregano, and farro, rice pudding with farro and eggs, and, below, is the sauteed turnip and radish greens, grilled radishes, asparagus and salmon.

The swiss chard tasted like spinach and although it's not my favorite consistency, doable. The sauteed greens were too bitter for me but Max was okay with them (even if they were vegetables), grilling the radishes neutralized any spark they may have had so I probably wouldn't do that again unless I knew they were going to be extremely potent. Everything else was great.

Here's this week's:

Green buttercrisp lettuce, red romaine lettuce, rhubarb, asparagus, dill and oregano, scallions, and a dozen eggs.
