This week, our bounty included three colors of Swiss chard (brilliant yellow, purple, and spring green), cilantro, lettuce, a sizeable head of kohlrabi, garlic scrapes, and broccoli.
The broccoli last week (as well as kohlrabi) was awesome in my first ever Thai stir-fry, so that bodes well for this week’s box.
I’m also pretty pumped to try Swiss chard again for the first time (yes, I think I’m clever, but you don’t have to). I bought it a couple of years ago when I first moved to Uptown, just down the street from The Wedge. In an attempt to branch out and eat healthier, I grabbed a bundle of it, took it home, sauteed it up in I-don’t-know-what, and just about gagged when I finally put it in my mouth. It was sad and I haven’t had it since. But I’m determined to like it this time around. I know I say it repeatedly, but it’s just so pretty! Darn you, Nature, for tempting me with your, ahem, natural beauty.
