After years of CSA membership, I’m pretty in tune with what’s going to be available every week for months and what may only be available for one week. My predictions aren’t perfect – we were still picking up tomatoes last week and I’d been getting them every week since September with the fear that it was the last week. Not that I’m complaining; tomatoes are the best.
That’s the mode I’m currently in with members of the brassica family: broccoli, cauliflower and romanesco cauliflower. I know they won’t be around forever and they look so good every time I see them at the farm. It doesn’t hurt that Brian’s favorite vegetable is romanesco. Do I need all 3 similar vegetables during the same week? Maybe not, but who knows what’ll be available next time.
The Pick Up
carrots, romanesco cauliflower, cauliflower, beets, broccoli, sweet peppers, butternut squash, delicata squash, potatoes
pepper, potato and cheese frittata with roasted romanesco
When in doubt, frittata is often the answer

We’re big galette fans, so I’m really looking forward to trying this new (to me) recipe
