I think this post might better be titled, "Where have I been? 3/18/15 edition," but I'll stick to the usual post name.
Here's what was in yesterday's box, the first of the spring share (and the first of the 2015-16 full year share as well). We've now gone through an entire year's share together. I hope you're keeping up with the veggies better than I have been lately.
In this firsts box of the spring: two bags of greens, watermelon radishes, apples, half a pound of coffee beans, a loaf of bread, hakurei turnips, carrots, and potatoes. I'm planning to use some of the coffee beans to try this recipe from the Splendid Table for slow roasting carrots on a bed of coffee beans.
One of the carrots in yesterday's box looked like it was giving a piggyback ride to a smaller carrot.
Two weeks ago, in the last box of the winter share (and last of the 2014-15 full year share), there were purple top turnips, potatoes, carrots, apples, greens, very tiny beets, and two butternut squash (which brought my total up to 13 butternut squash in the pantry).
Portland, Oregon, where I had a great view from my hotel room...
Natural Selection, an excellent vegetarian restaurant.
Departure (twice!) and lunch at Veritable Quandry.
Then I flew home through Seattle, with some beautiful views during the short flight to the north.
167 Raw for lunch. We had dinner at The Ordinary; no photos, but highly recommended if you like seafood. The razor clams with apple and cilantro are nothing short of amazing.
Old School House Pub & Restaurant in Hudson, MA (no plane flight needed).
It's been a busy couple of weeks. I'm back now. Time to start cooking all of those butternut squash!
