Organics to You – April 5, 2010

by Sherri Koehler on April 5, 2010

Last week I forgot about the delivery until it was close time for me to leave to pick up Christie and go to a friends’ seder dinner. I totally blew putting in the last delivery. Starting over again with today’s box from Organics to You:

  • spinach
  • salad greens
  • red kale
  • a leek
  • bunch of chives
  • 5 small zucchini
  • gold potatoes
  • rainbow carrots
  • 3 Rainer apples
  • 3 d’Anjou pears
  • 2 Honeygold grapefruit
  • 3 kiwis
  • an Ataulfo mango

From last week the fridge still contains:

  • 2 artichokes
  • a few carrots
  • fingerling potatoes
  • Jerusalem artichokes (sunchokes)
  • 2 small Russet potatoes
  • gold potatoes
  • 2 red beets
  • some garlic
  • 2 grapefruit
  • 2 Mineola tangerines
  • a lot of celery
  • rhubarb
  • braising greens
  • a kiwi
  • 5 pears
  • 5 apples
  • 2 leeks
  • beet greens
  • green lettuce
  • cilantro
  • 2 onions
  • half avocado
  • half onion
  • red curly kale

Supplemental produce in the house:

  • 4 Meyer lemons
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 5 bananas
  • parsley
  • a shallot
  • a yellow bell pepper
The Compost Pail of Shame (what I didn’t use and had to compost):
  • green curly kale
  • Romaine lettuce
  • an avocado (oh the shame of it all)
  • a few Chioggia beets
  • an eggplant

Last week shows what happens when we don’t end up eating at home as much – more went into the compost pile unused and we have a lot of produce already on hand. The star of last week were the collard greens used in a seder friendly dish first, then the leftovers incorporated into a superb final dish that I’ll be writing a recipe for: Collard green rolls stuffed with red quinoa, bell peppers, collards & BBQ Anasazi beans. Baked on top of more shredded collards and a tomato & corn sauce.

We have pounds of potatoes – I’m thinking I’ll make a shepherd’s pie (great chance to write out a recipe too) for Wednesday. Christie & I have a meeting on Wednesday so it would be nice to come home to a warm, potato-y casserole. Christie has also requested to savory kale bread pudding and since we have a lot of kale I’m thinking I need a stale baguette!
