Farm Fresh

asparagus, rainbow chard, cilantro, leeks, mushrooms, green onions, radishes, rhubarb, spinach,

What’s for Dinner?

When the first layer of my CSA box reveals itself as a collage of  cilantro, green onions, and radishes, I know I’m in business for Cinco de Mayo. It became clearer as I really unearthed their vast volume, not to mention some mighty tasty other gems, that we had plenty even for a “practice” session – Mexican heaven! This along with more of the season’s amazing asparagus, some continued experimentation as to whether rhubarb is a fruit or a veggie (both – botanically a vegetable, but generally eaten as a fruit so classified as such), and the first I’ve seen of spring’s sweet, delicate spinach.
