Down on the farm
We got perfect peonies, lovely lavendar and interesting herbs.
It's nice to try new things and search for fun recipes. But there's all this pressure to make sure I use Everything From the CSA!!! Like it's worse, somehow to waste these vegetables, which are special and expensive and beautiful (unlike the zucchini that I bought from Trader Joe's last week, forgot to eat and is now shriveled at the bottom of the fridge).
So by today, a full five days after I picked up my CSA share, I still had some swiss chard, chives, baby garlic and radish tops left to eat. What to make?
I turned to my favorite food blogger for inspiration and found this recipe for creamed chard. I threw in the radish tops with them and substituted the baby garlic for the onions.
Then, I put together some pan fried tilapia and called it dinner. Here's the recipe I invented. It wasn't mushy because I hate mushy, fried fish.
