Better Late Than Never

Filed under: pre-pickup — Tags: , , — M @ 18:14 PM

Just got the Week 04 newsletter, with suggestions and a correction. The correction is that, because we have a Thursday pickup, we won’t get broccoli but we will get (guess what!) rainbow chard. We also won’t get escarole, but we will get red leaf lettuce. And our tomatoes will either be of the cherry or red slicing varieties.

The suggestions: one for escarole and cannellini beans. I love escarole and beans together, especially with a little bit of spicy sausage, but we won’t get any escarole unless their Best Guess is inaccurate. Another suggestion is for what they’re calling “Oklahoma Comfort Food:” a casserole of brats, cabbage, and green beans. I’m guessing the cabbage that everyone’s going to get spurred this. The recipe is for a stovetop casserole, and I’ll have to check with Casey but I’m guessing it’s not too far from the Electric Frying Pan Casserole he grew up with. (I was a little worried when I saw the title, that they were suggesting we turn on the oven to 350 °F for an hour. Not in this weather!) And the third recipe is for Salmon and Swiss Chard Quiche, which is an interesting idea, but if I have fresh wild salmon, I’m not hiding it in a quiche!
