january 25 weekly menu | winter table

Farm Fresh

beets, braising greens, carrots, celeriac, leeks, parsnips, portabella mushrooms, potatoes, squash

What’s for Dinner?

As I was unpacking my Hood River Organic CSA box, and saw the gorgeous, just harvested portabella mushrooms, I knew it would be a scrumptious week.  These, and a type of squash I’ve never tried (buttercup…I’ve since learned it’s the cousin to butternut!)…it is really like Christmas!  Even if you don’t belong to a CSA, pick a veggie or two that looks intriguing, and explore its underestimated possibilities.  I think you’ll be surprised and delighted!  And don’t forget about winter Saturdays at the Portland Farmers Market!
