lunches and sides

Box day! Strawberries strawberries strawberries! I think the $20 was worth it just for the fresh strawberries. Yesterday was our first day of the summer fruit box, too, so we got a double batch. And fresh cilantro/coriander - when we unpacked the box, the smell filled the kitchen.

Lately I haven't been posting much because, while we've been using up the box, it has mostly gone to lunches and sides rather than full meals. We're starting our usual summer rotation of lunch salads - we make a few salads to have in the fridge, then add a new one every day, so each lunch we have a choice of three or four, and don't get sick of any particular one. The cabbage has gone mostly to coleslaw (yes, still - was that from two weeks ago? We still have some...sigh) and the greens are good just as they are, or with a little oil and vinegar drizzled over. (One day I ate three bowlsful for lunch - starved for fresh-tasting greens after winter wilts.) Beet greens and asparagus were just steamed lightly and served as sides. This time of year we keep things simple - everything tastes good just on its own.

Last night Kenneth made two different curries with fresh green onions and fresh cilantro. This morning we had waffles with strawberries. I love this time of year!
