CSA: Month Two

With our second month of our CSA has come kale. Lots and lots of kale. While I guaranteed Jon that we wouldn't get five pounds of kale each week, I never promised that we wouldn't get five pounds of kale cumulatively.

Evidently, many of the other fruits and vegetables have succumbed to the weather or the pesky deer, but thankfully(?), the kale has resisted all such setbacks. Kale is good, but we're certainly ready to move past the spring greens.

Here's what we've been cooking this month (yes, we've been less creative as there are some repeats):

Basil
Caprese Salad (basil, tomatoes, and mozzarella drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil)
Tortellini Pesto Salad (basil pesto over cheese tortellini mixed with tomato and cucumber)

Sunflower Sprouts
Sunflower Sprout Spread

Kale
Potato Skillet (potatoes, green peppers, onions, kale, kielbasa topped with cheese, sour cream, and/or salsa)
Panfried Kale
Chicken and Kale Casserole
Penne with Sauteed Sausage and Kale

Cucumber
"Pickled" Cucumbers (sliced cucumbers soaked in vinegar, salt, and pepper)
Tortellini Pesto Salad (basil pesto over cheese tortellini mixed with tomato and cucumber)

Green Tomatoes
BLGTs (bacon, lettuce, and green tomatoes with avocado for Elsa)

Oregano
Oregano Chicken

Tomatillos
Chicken Enchiladas

Braising Vegetables (random greens)
Braised Greens

Tomatoes
Tortellini Pesto Salad (basil pesto over cheese tortellini mixed with tomato and cucumber)

On to month three!
