There's something missing in this picture... Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 30, 2011

  • Basil
  • Turnips (white & golden)
  • Fennel
  • Prunes

If you’re thinking we came off badly this week, rest assured: we didn’t. There’s just something missing from this picture… Since we changed pick-up points this CSA season, we have to bring our own bag and select the vegetables we’re in title to instead of just grabbing a pre-packaged selection. That’s fine with us because it’s greener that way! But you have to pay attention… and that doesn’t always go well. ;) So I had to make a second run this week. Collecting:

  • Red Batavian lettuce
  • Broad beans — yay!

Menu plan

The beans went into a potato salad right away. Tomorrow we’ll be having a dinner guest and I plan to make taco’s with Mexican frijoles, salsa picante, guacamole, tri-coloured veggie mix (corn, courgette & red paprika) and fennel-tomato salad. The turnips will go into salad (grated) and I want to try mamichan’s spicy crispy umami salad. It’ll be Wednesday again before we know it!

Lately it seems to be dark & rainy when I need to collect our bag of local organic produce on Wednesday afternoons. I don’t mind getting (a little!) wet that much — the Amelis’Hof vegetable garden needs its fair share of water for us to get a nice loot — but I hate how gloomy my pictures turn out!

Luckily the sun broke through shortly after I had returned — just in time to make a picture! Hey, if the weather gets better once I’ve stashed everything neatly away I’m not crazy enough to unpack the fridge again for a make-over ;)

Amelis'Hof CSA vegetables week 31, 2010

  • lettuce
  • sweetheart cabbage
  • red berries
  • fennel
  • zucchinis (at this small size they’re at their best!)
  • basil
  • Tokyo turnips (or navet)

I haven’t planned my menu yet, but a dish I do want to cook is polenta ‘pizza’ with homemade pesto and courgettes. And I’ll probably make some more kinpira of the turnips because it’s a nice and easy bento stash.

Some good news from the Amelisbode, a leaflet accompanying the veggies: they’ve started a blog too! On preceding Mondays the contents of Wednesday’s packet will be ‘virtually’ unveiled. I admit it’ll be less fun checking out our ‘surprise package’, but it provides me with a more relaxing timespan for menu planning!

Thursday’s bento. Click on the picture and look at the notes on the Flickr page to find out what’s in it! Thankfully the little bunny didn’t eat it all.

De groentetas van week 32 daagt ons weer uit om nieuwe recepten te zoeken. In plaats van Christmas in July kregen wij meiknolletjes in augustus.

  • meiknollen
  • groene bataviasla
  • sperziebonen
  • venkel
  • prei
  • bosje tijm

Met de tempeh die we nog in huis hebben wordt dat in ieder geval een keertje nasi goring (prei) met sambal goreng boontjes eten. Jawel, ook dat is een all-time favourite die regelmatig op tafel verschijnt. En dan kunnen we meteen dat restje kool uit de koelkast opmaken. Met de boontjes die overblijven maak ik dan boontjessalade met tomatensaus, yummy! De rest van het weekplan moet nog worden uitgedacht, dus suggesties zijn welkom!

Gnoe goes ExtraVeganza!
