Weekly Menu - 5/25 thru 5/31

...and last week's produce haul. Clockwise from the left we received red mustard greens, spinach, mixed salad greens, green and red leaf lettuce, rhubarb, radishes and more turnips. I had never had fresh turnip greens (only canned) until last week. They were absolutely delicious; I'm looking forward to more this week.

We went camping over the long weekend. I didn't think all the greens would hold up well in the cooler. I didn't want them to wilt or spoil at home in the fridge either, so I picked up some of these Green Bags (website will play audio) and stored the veggies in them before we left on Friday. Everything seems to be holding up well. I plan to do a product review on the bags in a few days.
Meanwhile, here's the menu for this week:

Sunday: We had leftovers from camping (a campground cooking post is in the works).

Monday and Wednesday: Pizza and salad. The pizza wasn't homemade this time. We called for delivery; a rare event around here.

Tuesday: Shrimp Etouffee, Beans and Rice, Fried Okra, Turnip Greens, Garden Salad (lettuces and spinach)

Thursday and Saturday: Cheese Ravioli with Marinara Sauce, Mustard Greens, Garlic Toast, Garden Salad

Friday: Popcorn Chicken, Cooked Turnips, Pasta Salad, Garden Salad

The produce all looks yummy except turnips and rhubarb. I'm glad you are posting the pics so I can determine if I would like to do this next year.

Lisa: I just put up this weeks list. I forgot to take a picture, though. :(

I wish someone in Cass Co. would start an CSA farm, but when I asked at the Extension Office if they knew of anyone who was doing it, they looked at me like I had two heads.
