Why You Should Trust Me

 The other evening my friend, Kevin, and I, set out to make a meal of some of the produce in my CSA box. We had: cauliflower, cilantro, golden potatoes, peppers, spring onions, and green garlic. What to make?

We decided on a Thai shrimp and cauliflower curry, and Bhutanese potatoes. To be frank, neither of us had much of an idea how to make the curry.  But here's what we used:

1 head green garlic, 1 knob of ginger, 1 thai chili pepper, 1/2 can coconut milk, salt, pepper, 1/2 bunch of chopped cilantro

We threw it all in a blender, whizzed it around, and voila!  Delish!!  We stir fried the shrimp and added lightly steamed cauliflower chunks.   

Try it over rice, or over noodles, but try it! Now. Trust me.  



City Girl

So, since I grew up in Manhattan, I've been, in the words of Woody Allen, "at two with nature."  But I am on a quest to change that! Today I drove to Valley End Farm in Santa Rosa, where my CSA gets its vegetables and fruit.  What a day!  As I left the the East bay the scenery changed from cement to green, green green.  

 As this blog moves ahead, it is my plan to open my mind and heart to nature. Everyone I know gets pleasure from it-- why not this city girl? 


Spring harvests

Oakland is gorgeous today.  I walked from BART to Lake Merritt, and was so grateful to be in CA.  Valley End Farm is about to begin its serious harvest.  Organic-Now began its deliveries in January, the absolute worst time, but now, now it's all about to spring forth! 


For dinner tonight, I am using the leek and green onions for my CSA box, along with the amazing eggs, to make a quiche.  The egg yolks are such an incredible deep yellow.  If it turns out I'll post the recipe.

 Remember to eat your veggies!
