It was way too beautiful to stay home today. We took a drive to pick up the VA award winning Governor’s Cup wine, down in Front Royal, VA. Sometime when we have enough time to breathe, there will be a post about the great wines we tasted, and the lovely cheeses we bought.
Almost forgot that the CSA (Week 16) was coming today, but at the last minute threw ice packs out in the cooler and left for about six hours. Came home to find two packs of meat, still in good shape and a boatload of spinach, among other things.
The haul (a half share, remember):
1 Large root onion
2 large leeks
asparagus (happy days, my wild asparagus is not putting out much)
red potatoes (1 1/4 pounds)
the boatload of spinach
As for meat: Angus ground beef and Angus Italian sausages
It looks like tomorrow night will be grilling night, if the weather holds. Italian sausages, potatoes and asparagus on the grill. What could be better?
As for that boatload of spinach, the small leaves are going to become salads. The bigger ones maybe a spinach and cheese pie, if I can get time to do some pastry crust. I have some really nice runny cheeses around here, and lots of herbs growing. And, still lots of eggs from last week. Hmmm, quiche?
Plus, who knows what I may find if I get to Baltimore for the market on Sunday or what I may find tomorrow at Greenfest in the mini farmer’s market there. I am hoping someone has mushrooms, but may have to run off to Roots and get some.
Two more weeks of winter CSA, then a week before the Sandy Spring CSA starts up and I really drown (happily) in veggies again. I hope to be in garlic scape heaven soon.
