In the mix:
Swiss chard (which I’ve had before and was NASTY…but I’m googling other ways to use it), lettuce and garlic scapes (not sure what these are…I’m assuming the tops of garlic.
I also came home to an exciting package from my friend who works at a specialty olive oil store:
Naturally I got right to work to incorporate the CSA share veggies and the olive oil into my dinner!
Swiss Chard- like I said I’ve had it before when I just sautéed it with garlic and olive oil. It tasted like bitter dirt….ugh. For the salad I made last night I only wanted to use the stalks. So I cut them off and chopped them like celery.
I’ll save the leaves for later in the week and hopefully they will be edible. Any suggestions?
The salad I made last night was scrumptious:
Baked mustard glazed chicken thighs over lettuce from the share, caramelized onions, the chard stalks, roasted sweet potatoes and avocado. I used the Chipotle olive oil for the sweet potatoes which gave it a nice kick!
Other notable meals and obsessions this week:
Ummmm don’t buy this if you don’t have the money to support the addiction. Many scoops with a spoon are regularly taken out throughout the day. OMGGG sooo good.
