CSA Box #3

Before I share the goodies I got yesterday at the Farmers Market, I have to give serious kudos to the guys at the booth for making me this beautiful bouquet. As part of my CSA, I pick up a very large bouquet along with my fruits/veggies. This week, they didn’t have my flowers ready so they built one for me on the spot. Gorgeous!

…Cabbage and turnips.

 Lemons, Sage, Turnips, Cabbage

There were a lot of good basics this week, lemons, lettuce, spinach, avocados, and berries. I love that the wild cards are the fresh sage and turnips. I have a butternut squash in the pantry that I think will go well with the sage, perhaps in a risotto. I think some fish tacos are in order for that cabbage, but I’m not sure what to do with turnips. Any suggestions?

I LOVE fresh sage, it’s makes a lovely little bouquet near by sink while think of ways to use.

  1. Everything looks amazing! And those flowers will be a beautiful breath of fresh air during the week 🙂 I love this recipe for turnips…and its even better for leftovers! http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/beer-braised-beef-with-onion-carrot-turnips-10000001924727/. Now I am wishing I had some turnips…

    Sage and butternut squash are a perfect combo…check out my recipe for homemade ravioli…and they freeze well too for later use 🙂 http://inherchucks.com/2012/01/10/butternut-squash-ravioli-with-sage-butter/

    • Thanks for the recipes, I going to try the Squash Ravioli this week. It’s so perfect that it freezes well since I’m cooking a whole butternut squash for one person. I was worried about having to make pasta dough, but then I saw ‘wonton wrapper’. Genius!
