June 27, 2011

A good do-nothing weekend.  I’ve been fighting a cold for at least two weeks now, so it couldn’t have come at a better time.

We’ve been working our way through last Tuesday’s CSA box – just in time, too, since we pick up the next one tomorrow.

I put the green kohlrabi into chicken soup on Saturday, and it went unnoticed.  Alistair had two bowls, which at a minimum means that the kohlrabi didn’t ruin anything.  I’ve never cooked kohlrabi before, don’t think I’ve ever even eaten it before – it’s got a very mild broccoli-stalkish flavor.  I thought it was part of the cabbage family, but maybe it’s part of the broccoli/cauliflower family.  Not sure.

So what we’re left with at this point is a purple kohlrabi, one bunch of scallions, a bunch of radishes, a bunch of arugula and a bunch of lettuce.  Tonight I’m either going to grill or stir-fry all of the above, maybe serve over noodles or rice, or in lettuce cups.  We’ll see.

Needless to say, I’m a bit off my meal-planning game.  Having the box come on Tuesdays is a challenge, since I do the weekly shopping on Saturdays.  So right now the weekly meal plan looks like this:

Monday:  veggies
Tuesday: Alistair’s pick of the week = waffles
Wednesday:  chicken thighs
Thursday:  pork chops
Friday:  takeout

In other news, Larson is on the brink of cutting some more teeth, he’s gnawing on everything like a small wild animal.  He’s even taken to chewing on his binkie rather than sucking on it, which makes me think once we’re over the teething we’ll be getting rid of that.  Fingers crossed!
