Cee Ess Aayyy.

So, here's what I'm going to do over the next couple of weeks, to make the blog more interesting.  I've signed up for a winter CSA, and I will blog some gluten-free ideas for tasty CSA food.  (I'm a little bit grumpy, because I thought it was going to be more greens, and less lettuce, but that's a story for another time:

The bag I pick up today is supposed to have:

The second share will include
Urban Oaks' Asian stir-fry mix, Thai hot peppers and Lemongrass, as well as
organic Avocados, Tangerines, Daikon Radishes, Garlic, Ginger, Scallions,
Cilantro, Yams, and Green Leaf Lettuce. 

I'm giving the cilantro and most of the peppers to a friend who likes hot and spicy.    I'll probably make some kind of soup with the lemongrass and some of the 'soup greens' we got in the first batch..

(the first batch was carrots, celery, carrots, beets, carrots, potatoes [which had unfortunately sprouted] onions, parsley, sage, soup greens, and lettuce)  Also oranges (one of which had gone bad) and pears.   
And I don't know why the font decided to change mid-post.

I'm a little grumpy today.   

Anyway, I roasted a chicken with some of the onion, potatoes and carrots.   And made a carrot soup with some ginger and tumeric...   I'll probably roast some beets tomorrow..  maybe with the daikon and a couple of yams...

I have no idea what to do with the lettuce.   I don't want salad in winter...salad is a summer thing.
