The hits just keep on coming! We were bombarded with a lovely CSA this week. It was bigger than the past few weeks. I guess the good weather is good for my stomach! I now have an overabundance of green beans. I tend to just cut them up and cook them in a fry pan with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Boring, I know. But very easy. If any of you out there in webland have recommendations on more creative ways to cook green beans I would love them.
I was very excited for this big bunch of kale. I feel like I have been on a kale kick lately. If I see it on a restaurant menu, I'm going to order it. After having the lovely Marrakesh Express salad at the Stone Fox, I decided to try something similar. I cooked quinoa with carrots, sweet potatoes, celery and raisins. It all tasted good, but I have a quinoa problem. It always comes out mushy like oatmeal instead of retaining the individual grains. (I also have this problem sometimes when I cook rice. I really think it's me). Besides the mush, the taste was spot on. I put a little sriracha on top and-bravo! A fake Marrakesh Express salad.
