Waiting for the box...

Ah, snow and ice. You keep my vegetables from me.

We're still using up the remnants of last week's box. Kenneth made more kimchee yesterday, to add to the huge jar we already have in the fridge, but he seems to be really enjoying it for lunches and is trying to perfect his recipe. On Monday he tried to improve on my turnip chip recipe by deep frying slices of turnip - and that worked much better than my method! Not quite as crispy as potato chips, but tasty. We're also working through corn frozen from the summer, and, of course, beets.

Tonight was fish and chips: trout with sweet-potato and beet oven-baked chips, salad on the side. The sweet-potato chips work really well (cut into sticks, toss with a tablespoon or two of olive oil, bake at 450 for 15 mins, stir, bake another 15 minutes or so) but I hadn't tried it before with beets. They didn't end up quite as much like a french fry - more just like roasted beet - but they were okay. Kenneth didn't like them but Ria ate nothing else, so it balanced out!

Which means that, with the box being snow-delayed, we're down to two little beets and a pile of onions! Hard to believe. Time for some French onion soup perhaps.
