may 30 weekly menu | spring table

Farm Fresh

bok choy, fennel, gourmet greens, green garlic, lettuce, kale, radishes

What’s for Dinner?

Nope, that’s not an optical illusion. My veggies this week literally nearly cover the entire kitchen table.  Sauvie Island Organics (SIO), my “summer CSA,” has officially launched its season! And despite receiving an email ahead of time, detailing each of the farm fresh items I was to receive, it really wasn’t until I lay my own eyes and hands on this giant bunch of produce did it come full force. I’ve got my cooking work cut out for me this week…this is a job I’ll take on any time!
