CSA Week 8

Congrats to our CSA Green Grocer, who recently won Chicago Reader's Poll for Best Grocery Store 2011! This is well deserved as Cassie and her staff are always so friendly. They often have in-store demos or tastings when we stop by to pick up our CSA. It's a clean, well organized space that I love having in the neighborhood.

Looking forward to make a special surprise for A with this week's strawberries. Also going to try two different pasta recipes using the cabbage and scapes. Can't wait!

Garlic Scapes (Nichols Farm, Illinois) - made a really delicious pesto from Dorie Greenspan
Baby Beets (Nichols)
Romaine (Genesis Growers, IL)
Cabbage (Genesis Growers) - used with farfalle, pancetta and fresh mozzarella
Double strawberries (Seedling Farms, Michigan) - made a strawberry cheesecake ice cream
