What's For Dinner? Plus Week Three Of Our CSA!
First let's take a look what we got from our CSA this week!
More strawberries (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE strawberry season??), garlic scapes, chard, asparagus (Also a favorite!) and radishes! I just love Mondays...It's like a little surprise waiting for me at the end of the day each week!
Now let's get down to What's For Dinner?!?!!
Tonight we are having company so things are a bit more fancy that usual....
For dinner I've got a pork loin I'm going to cut into chops. We're going to have mashed potatoes, a carrot/fennel dish and I'm going to play around with the chard/garlic scapes. I also plan to have a tossed salad with a choice of either Ranch of Blue Cheese dressing.
For dessert we are having strawberries, peaches and blueberries, on top of Paula Deen's Pound Cake with some whipped cream. I'm going to make some gluten free peanut butter cookies for Jamison, since he obviously can't have the cake.
What are you having?

Sprouting is so much fun! I've done chick peas and lentils. Will have to try soy beans!
I totally forgot about them when I was making dinner. I've never had them before, but I plan to make the chard/garlic scape dish for dinner tomorrow night!

Oooh! I got garlic scapes in my CSA this past week, too! They're yummy!
(Oh, and for dinner, we had low-fat pasta alfredo, a salad of greens from the CSA, and some still-warm homemade whole wheat bread (I really gotta start food blogging more often!). And I'm stuffed!)

I've never actually had garlic scapes, but I've wanted to try them for years and could never find them anywhere. You've got to love CSAs!
