Made it to Oregon after an oops-where-is-the-airport-bathroom-uh-oh-kid-had-an-accident type of situation. That = unfun. Oregon = Green, calm, rainy forest (Oregon, didn’t you get the memo? I came out for SUMMER not Spring-Fall-Winter rain!). My mother is a cooking machine and since we are so many at the house, she is now a member of not one, but TWO CSA boxes. Yep, ladies and gentlemen, more greens and kale and chard and spinach than you can ever imagine. Wednesdays *and* Fridays! Not that I am complaining because there is nothing better than fresh farm vegetables, but my mother has to get creative with all the greens in the house. And this recipe (random concoction created by Nana Proskurowski) was unbelievable. So good that I had to recreate it the next day!
* Chard / kale / combination of both
* One onion
* One apple
* Some broccoli — obviously needed to be used up, but added some crunch, texture and variety
* Handful of hazelnuts
* Olive oil
* salt and pepper
I am so excited for my summer of Nana’s cooking! Take a look at today’s delivery:
I would have no idea what to do with most of these vegetables — so Nana to the rescue! Stay tuned for more recipes. Until then, have a great weekend! Rumor has it that July is right around the corner. Who would have known with all this Oregon rain?
