Hi everyone, Jess here, and barely keeping my head above water this week! It’s the last week of school for the boys, my other half has fallen ill, and there’s lots to do for this weekends festival! The pickup this week looks lovely, and I wanted to provide you with some ideas for those that may not have as hectic of a week, (as well as ideas for those that do!) Let’s take a closer look at these goodies…
I went into hyper mode when I got home with my goodies this afternoon. After a rinse, I chomped half the lettuce as I separated it from the core and patted the other half of leaves damp dry before storing them in the crisper drawer with the tendrils. The Spring Garlic was cut and frozen with the unused portions from previous weeks, except for a few pieces sprinkled into a quick egg scramble for my dinner-for-one (my other half wasn’t up for dinner, and the boys were eating at another activity). The radishes were separated from their greens and the bulbs were popped into a bowl of water in the fridge. Finally, the clover flowers were popped into a mason jar for an iced tea.
This week, some of you had chive flowers in your share. I thought I’d mention a recipe that’s great for the spring garlic and/or the chive flowers. Behold, the scallion pancake!
That’s about it for me today. I’ll see you back here at the end of the week for the “Tell” of the Springdell Show and Tell, meanwhile, please keep thinking warm and sunny thoughts for the Strawberry Festival this coming Saturday!
