Make Up Your Mind

Filed under: General — tj @ 10:07 am

I have one of those events coming up, let’s call it my special day.  There will be a gathering of people, and a dinner.  The place that we’re going gives me options that I’m not quite ready to tackle.  There is a mostly well known fact, that I really enjoy ice cream, particularly when it comes in the form of a shake or malt.  I’m also a fan of adult beverages, primarily beer, especially in a celebratory fashion.  Here’s where the problem comes in; on most days, it’s only socially acceptable to order one type of beverage with dinner, but the place we’re going to offers both.  The first thing that occurred to me was, it’s my damn day, why can’t I have both?  Once again I’m teetering on the edge of good taste and humanity, letting my impulses push me away from social norms that I merely breeze by before crushing them with two glasses, one filled with beer, and one filled with milk and ice cream blended deliciously together.

Ye Bountiful Harvest

Filed under: CSA — tj @ 1:51 pm

Can it be summer squash?  It is!  And those are tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, onions, a lone green pepper, cabbage, arugula.  Not easily visible are some great smelling herbs, rosemary and dill, along with a thing of fennel.  We ate one of the tomatoes, it was good.  This is one of the first boxes we’ve gotten where we feel like there’s a majority of vegetables we like to eat, instead of things we had to experiment with, like kohlrabi.

Steamy Stir Fry Shrimp

Stir fry broccoli with anything and it’s bound to be delicious.  I wasn’t around for the saucification, but I remember there being bottles with sesame oil, tamari, and hoisin sauce on the counter at some point.  Also included were shrimp, onions, carrots, and beet greens, served next to some exotic red rice.

Who Eats Kale?

Filed under: CSA — tj @ 1:41 pm

Apparently we do.   I think there was kale, and some carrots, onions, garlic, and maybe chicken broth reduced down.  There was still a lot to the kale, but it was pretty good.  There’s something wholesome and satisfying to chewing a vegetable for a while, and getting flavor the whole time.  The same does not apply to steak.

A Week Ago and Some Change

Filed under: CSA — tj @ 1:31 pm


Some real nice looking vegetables this time, carrots, zucchini, broccoli, beets, onions, kale, raddiccio, and some lamb’s quarters, which is apparently a weed that got thrown in for fun.  We ended up using it in a banana / mango smoothie, and it was pretty potent.  When I say potent I mean it tasted like grass.  It was the first time I actually followed a recipe though, and the consistency was near perfect as far as smoothies go.  We also got some really nice raspberries, super juicy.
