This is what they say we will get tomorrow:
Kohlrabi – 1 piece
Fennel – 1 piece
Carrots – 1 bunch
Cilantro – 1 bunch
Escarole – 1 head
Scallions – 1 bunch
Arugula – 1 bag
Green Romaine Lettuce – 1 head
Green Boston Lettuce – 1 head
Most people cook kohlrabi, but I slice it thin on a mandolin, and use it as a wrapper for raw vegan ravioli. Some folks slice it thin, salt it, and then eat it like that. You can also slice it thin and make matchsticks of it, and throw it in salads.
I chop up fennel and put it in whatever I am making. It gives a kind of licorice flavor to a salad.
Everything else will go to salad (you know me – not going to happen that often). Since I’m getting so much salad-y kind of stuff, I expect I will again be experimenting with green smoothies (hear, here, I hate green smoothies, but I can buy some bananas and some apples and experiment with adding those to lettuce drinks. I am committed to using all of these vegetables (especially since I am way broke, so, once again, this is all the fresh food I have — I have some canned things and dried things in the pantry, left over from last year)
If you are like me, do not try to put arugula in your smoothie (it tastes like dirty feet — okay, like dirty feet smell — I’ve never actually tasted it because the smell was so off-putting) Arugula does tastes nice in salads, and it is also tasty mixed into sprouted quinoa, with other vegetables.

I made that finger food, but then i decided to see if a smoothie would work for water (NOT) before hot yoga.
I put in one of the heads of mystery lettuce I got yesterday, 1/4 red bell pepper, about 6 of the tiny onions I got two weeks ago, the tomato I got yesterday, 1/2 of the cute sweet yellow cherry tomato tomatoes (I want to eat the rest – they are so sweet!), and half of a cucumber I had left over. Since I was going to hot yoga, i did not put any garlic in, but I threw in a liberal amount of Tabasco.
It came out a yucky green but it was definitely palatable. I am going to a party, so I am not going to add the garlic it needs to the leftover..

Close your eyes! Cover your ears!
I’VE BEEN SECRETLY DOING GREEN SMOOTHIES!! – but my way.
TONIGHT’S GREEN SMOOTHIE
1-red Cippolino onion
1 clove fresh garlic
3 small celery stalks
5 tomatoes1/2 T spirulina
I find I enjoy the salad tasting smoothies better than smoothies with fruit, i.e., I am happier with green smoothies that garlic and onions than with ones that have fruit.
I am satisfied to have my fruit plain in a smoothie.

This is what they say we will get:
RED OAKLEAF LETTUCE
I understand that the fruit share will start up next week – that’s a good thing… with all the leaves they keep sending, I need something to put in the green smoothies I’m forced to make.
