CSA Week 4 – No more beets

Week four brought a great selection of zucchini and yellow squash, romaine lettuce, cabbage, Swiss chard, garlic, and the first tomato of the season!  Missing from my photo is the beets included in this week's share.  I chose to leave my beets on a table at the CSA pickup site for someone else to take home.  I do not feel bad about this.

Regardless of the beets, this was a very good CSA week.  The yellow squash was grilled, the zucchini spiralized, the tomato added to hamburgers, and the  lettuce and cucumbers used for salads.  My hubs and I are fond of cabbage so I tried it in a grilled sesame ginger cabbage recipe which only turned out OK so the rest of the cabbage was used in stir fries and salads.

A new thing I tried was making Swiss Chard and Bacon Turnovers with puff pastry.  I created my own recipe based off of two different ones I found online and shared 4 of them with my friends at the CSA pick up site.

Swiss Chard and Bacon Turnover

Yum!  So, here is the thing though:  the turnover was a big hit and even my teenage son ate one, but it isn't exactly good for you. If you need to add bacon and wrap your veggies in puff pastry for it to taste good then maybe you are simply better off not eating that particular vegetable.

I Test It First
