Local Produce Box: Week 5

This week's box was very green: romaine lettuce, nevada lettuce, kale, onions, garlic scapes, snow peas, snap peas, shelling peas, kohlrabi, mint....and tomatoes (for a splash of red)

With the produce this week being very similar to the last few weeks, I did not make any new recipes, but simply repeated some of our favorites:
I also made kale chips which were devoured by my hungry munchkins.

And with every meal we had a salad. I like to add a variety of toppings to my salads such as onions, chives, tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries, pecans, raisins, cranberries...really, whatever I have on hand may end up in a salad.

We ate the snap peas and the kohlrabi with hummus - delicious.

And the girls shelled the other peas which I then blanched and froze to use later. I also chopped up the onion and froze it in small portions to add to future dishes.

Great food again this week. And as we move into the middle of July I am excited to see what comes next...

P.S. I don't often recommend things here on the blog, but Steve and I just finished watching the inspiring documentary "Cooked". It provided such an interesting look at food, cooking, the changes to our food system, the culture of food, and I would highly recommend it.
