yesterday's market stash |

I am crossing my fingers that the dishwasher repair guy will yield fabulous results tomorrow and am prepping myself for a week of yum in the kitchen with our CSA stash:

  • Rainbow chard
  • Daikon
  • Salad turnips
  • Salad mix
  • Kohlrabi
  • Parsley
  • Spinach
  • Fennel
  • Parsnips
  • Beets
  • Leeks!!

What are you cooking this week?

P.S. I have officially maxed out on loquats. It was bound to happen.

vegetarian. mama. love to cook, read, knit, take pictures and make things. places where food, memory, and culture intersect are my favorite.


  1. So I got a bunch of parsnips yesterday and was just going to roast them, but I bet you are doing something much more interesting. Any suggestions?

    • i’ve been throwing them in juice the past few weeks – apples, parsnips & spinach. can also use them in place of carrots in soups (minestrone is particularly yummy with them). if you got turnips, you can make a hash and throw a fried egg on top. 😉

    Oh! Also, I’m so interested in the loquats. Do you know of any public places to gather them? I and my neighbors do not grow them.

    • i don’t think that anyone grows them on purpose. 😉 there are lot of trees throughout South Austin neighborhoods. if you feel brave enough, you should walk up to the door and ask if you can grab a few. mostly, folks are happy to get harvesting help.

    Hi! I don’t subscribe to the JBG box, but purchase a variety of veggies from a variety of the local farms. However, a friend was heading out of town and offered me her JBG box for the week. I’m guessing this is the CSA you use, since the veggies look very familiar. 🙂 I haven’t read enough of your blog to know if you are vegan or simply vegetarian, so if you and your audience are vegan, my apologies for mentioning dairy products. I am making a fennel and portobello mushroom pizza, a strawberry and spinach salad, cream of leek soup and a swiss chard lasagna. I haven’t decided what to do with the rest. Have a great week!

    • i would say that about 80% of our meals are vegan but we make room for an occasional cheesy dish. lasagna sounds like a fab idea! and yes… JBG FTW. we do pickups every other week which helps keep things different week to week.
