april 18 weekly menu | spring table

Farm Fresh

braising mix, chives, collard greens, kale raab, kale, micro greens, mushrooms, radishes, spinach, sunchokes

What’s for Dinner?

The newest member of the spring veggie line-up is spinach. While we all love our kale, chard, raab, and collards, the more delicate and sweet spinach leaf is getting a warm welcome from me for sure! This, along with more vibrant and peppery radishes, a healthy bunch of chives, and more of the late winter/early spring mainstays. All of this goodness from the gorge will go a long way in making a fabulous Easter (and pre and post-Easter) celebration!
