Here is the take for the week. Gorgeous!

We split a Half Monty Deluxe between three households. Two of us have been part of the Southside CSA, so we generally know that once the blueberries start, you are in blueberry heaven for a few weeks, so we use a quick recipe to make some easy breakfast muffins.

This is what we made with our vegetable and egg share….a kind of Turkish savory pancake.

Some of the strawberries that live in our refrigerator!
At Milk Bar we know a good snack when we see one! At any given day in our busy office one may find a veritable smorgasbord of potential new treats laid upon our big meeting table for tasting like a Parthenon offering to the statue of Athena. A day’s work is all too often punctuated by the remnants of these delicious creations some of which find their way to our menu while others remain a happy memory in our collective palate perhaps to be resurrected by a culinary epiphany at some future date. If one is not careful, however, by end of day one may find he has quietly amassed a mountain of plates with the evidence of the milky, sugary goodness staring him in the face reminding him he’s substituted chocolate malt for a midday meal once again. Not a bad gig for any burgeoning snackmeister, I must say.
Around the Milk Bar office our CSA share has given us a few new daytime snack options. We store our share in the office refrigerator where most mornings members of our Press team can be found stirring a handful of blueberries and strawberries into their yogurt or oatmeal. Weekly meetings, once dominated by a spread of goodies that would make Marie Antoinette blush, now share the stage with snap peas and berry bowls. Though our tastings remain sacred we turn to our CSA share for much needed midday sustenance and each member of our team is free to visit the fridge at his or her delight. Personally, I’m partial to a cornflake-strawberry-blueberry admixture – great for snacking with multiple pencils tucked behind your ears and an inbox bursting at the digital seams.

We are Maria, Quentin, and Hawkins (the cat). This is the first summer we’ve signed up for a CSA and we couldn’t love it more! The two of us pick up full berry and vegetable shares (orchard share to come!!).
This week we got four quarts of strawberries, four stalks garlic, two stalks of red onion, three stalks of white onion, a cute plastic bag of flor de calabaza, one bunch mizuna and one of Swiss chard, two pounds of snap peas (one from Greig Farm and one from Miromex) and a pound of mixed salad greens. We ran through most of it this week save for some leftover onions and garlic. And we’ve been able to lug everything back to our home in Ridgewood in three canvas tote bags.
Though we’ve planning to make strawberry preserves the way Maria’s grandmother likes to, this time we ate through all 4 quarts by Wednesday afternoon! Last week, we somehow managed to restrain ourselves enough to save a quart for a batch of strawberry biscuits… but not this time around.
For breakfast, we often make scrambled eggs served on tortillas with some scraps of green veggies. This week we used cilantro and sugar snap peas. Both of us bring lunch to work during weekdays and we’ve been happily throwing the mixed salad greens on our turkey sandwiches for extra crunch. Yum! Continue reading
