hello, sweet potatoes! this week, our csa box included: raspberries, beets, snap peas, lettuce, parsley, carrots, onions, rainbow chard, strawberries and escarole. i’ve been making spanakopita so much that i don’t think you’ll be seeing that on our menu again for a while (though it is so yummy!). my favorite this week was probably the grilled salad.. who knew grilled lettuce tasted so good?! hint: be looking for these veggies at your store or farmers market- they’ll have most likely traveled less distance to get to you!
monday: grilled romaine salad with veggies and berry cobbler
tuesday: spinach spanakopita with roasted carrots (triangle style)
wednesday: grilled veggie kabobs with birthday cake (& more birthday cake)
thursday: stir fry rice noodles with tofu and veggies
friday: coconut rice with lemon agave stir fry
what was on your plate this week? any favorite recipes you’d like to share?
