Our First!

When we came home from Chautauqua there was a big surprise in our fridge! Our first haul from Birdsong Farm CSA included a beautiful bunch of red leaf lettuce, a bunch of green leaf lettuce, a bag of lovely delicate mesclan mix, wonderful peppery tiny radishes, super fresh sugar snap peas, young bok choy, and something we have never eaten before, garlic shoots! Here is what we made for dinner- salad greens with radishes and a light vinaigrette,DSC02768

and then a stir fry of pasta, shrimp, bok choy, sugar snaps and garlic shoots. DSC02769Yummy! Here is basically the sauce that Kim added to the stir fry:

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp. oyster sauce

1 tsp. Thai garlic chili sauce

1 tbsp. corn starch

He briefly soaked the raw peeled shrimp in soy sauce before he stir fried them. He added the sauce at the end of the stir fry, and placed everything over a bed of fettucine!

About Kim Galizio

I am involved in 2 blogs. For Lettuce Never Squash Our Love - I have a great desire to support our local farm community and joining a CSA was one way to do that. In the process we found it fascinating to explore what we can do with our CSA box and what others are doing as well. For Lean is Good - My first exposure to lean was in 1991 as TPM coordinator for 10 years at a rubber manufacturing facility. I love the blues both playing and listening being part of the Kent music scene for many years. I will plug the Kent Stage for Folk and Blues shows and go see 15-60-75 the numbers band whenever they are playing it will be worth it.
