The AeroGarden is gettin a tad bit unruly. I am worried that one night I may return home to find a miniature pickup truck broken down in the front of it.
Tonight I started off by making this slaw out of napa cabbage following my latest trend of not sticking with solely Asian recipes for Asian vegetables (see here). I tossed it with horseradish, shallots, dijon, cider vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and sliced grape tomatoes with sliced scallion and basil.
For the main course: buttered turnips and potatoes with chives; roasted chicken breast, shallots, and celery; and steamed broccoli. Everything but the chicken and the chives (from my mother's garden) was from the farm.
The wine accompaniment was a sub $5 bottle so I won't even bother mentioning it. However, all told it was a very rewarding meal.
I hear rumors of a farmer's market on the Upper West Side. I may crash it this Friday to see if I can supplement my lack of vegetables for the week.
Is that like cheating on our farm share?
