Farmshare Week 5

Sorry guys, I forgot to take a photo because I was in a rush to get to my 10k race. Here is a list of what I got:

  • radishes
  • mint
  • mesclun greens
  • braising greens
  • purslane
  • fava beans (I forgot to use the fava beans from last week)

As you can see, most of the same so just go look at last week’s picture ok?

I have a lot of pictures of my eats from last week, but most of them came out bad & blurry. I will try to improve.

Migas/chilaquiles type dish. Tortillas, black beans, and braised greens all simmered in salsa, topped with 2 fried eggs, avocado, yogurt. This was brunch after a 6 mi run.

I canned a batch of brandied cocktail cherries, because maraschino cherries are gross:
