Noah helped cut rhubarb today in preparation for tomorrow night's dessert.
Our family is enjoying the adventure of our first year participating in a CSA farm. We choose a farm, purchased a share and each week pick up a box of vegetables and in the summer we will get a fruit box as well. Noah and I get excited to pick up the box of veggies and check out what is inside. I would say that we have always been relatively healthy eaters; however, we certainly weren't adventurous in our food choices. That is all changing now! I never buy parsnips, sunchokes or even bok choy at the grocery store but now we are getting them and so many others on a weekly basis. It is fun to find and try to recipes and discover that we really like all these foods. Shawn said tonight "It is like we are eating at a fancy restaurant." I'll take that as a compliment, thank you very much. He also asked if the meal was vegan, while eating a cheese stick that he had grabbed as he walked in the door.
Our herb garden has taken a hit. I left the pots out overnight and the very next day read that basil doesn't do well when the temps fall below 50 degrees. Whoops. We will be buying new basil plants. The dill is looking pretty sad as well. I am really terrible with plants but am willing to keep trying - any positive green thumb vibes are appreciated.
Does anyone have any rhubarb recipes to share? I've already done a rhubarb/strawberry crisp and am now going to make a lemon/rhubarb bundt cake. It seems that all the recipes I've come across are just loaded with sugar. Not that I don't love dessert but I'd like to explore some other options.
