Just brought my box inside and opened it up. Its like a present every week full of cheer! New things to try this week, like Kohlrabi...a definate first. Who else has had kohlrabi? How did you prepare it?
I am also excited to try the smoked albacore! Sounds like a lazy Friday night munchable. The cherries are sweet and just ripe enough to nibble on. Making pasta tonight, I guess it will be acompanied by a squash casserole...I have three different squashes to include!
