CSA love in the form of garlic scapes

CSA love in the form of garlic scapes

I’ve been doing way more simple cooking recently, but have tried to keep a list for myself of awesome (and relatively easy) stuff I can come back to when pre-made burgers and sweet potato fries aren’t cutting it anymore.  Here’s some good ones from St. Patrick’s Day to now:

  • This freaking amazing Corned Beef and Cabbage, so reminiscent of my Nana’s that I felt like I was back at the kids’ table with my cousins again.
  • Arugula Pesto:  Arugula is hard for me to eat in CSA quantities.  So, pesto it is:  over pasta with steamed broccoli or sauteed kale and cherry tomatoes; on pizza with mozzarella, broccoli, and roasted red pepper; mixed with yogurt or other cheeses for dip…More greens!  (And cheese.  Always cheese.)
  • Roasted Squash and Greens over Pasta:  Greens, squash, and cheese.  ‘Nuff said.
  • Tomato and Sausage Risotto:  Contrary to what I just said, this one involves some stirring, but the results are worth it.  And it’s still a one-pot meal.
  • Roasted Shrimp with Rosemary and Thyme:  I love roasting more and more, as it is one of the less hands-on methods:  no standing over a spattering skillet, no stirring.  And delicious.
  • Crock-Pot Cassoulet:  The ultimate one-pot meal:  coming from a crock-pot.  Toss in all ingredients.  Press “on.”  Return 7+ hours later to a house smelling heavenly and dinner ready.
  • Tangy Spiced Brisket:  See above.  We made this for Easter, and froze the leftovers.
  • Fig-Nut Quick Bread:  A way to use up leftover dried figs in the cabinet, and a nice change from banana or zucchini or other common quick breads.  (Plus, my kids didn’t really like it, so more for me.)
  • These Fruit-Bran Muffins have been calling me since I made my first batch…they need summer fruit, they say.  Like nectarines, or plums, or fresh berries.
