- one HUGE white onion
- a leek
- head of broccoli
- big bag of salad leaves
- cherry tomatoes
- some pak choi leaves
- some lovely brown mushrooms
- a bag of beautiful sugar snap peas
- oranges, apples and kiwi fruit for the fruit bowl
Some nice basics this week - Little Man loves broccoli and so do I! We usually had the nice dark green 'flower' as a veggie side dish and keep the stalk to chop up and add to soup (goes particularly well in leek and potato soup). The sugar snap peas barely made it to the end of the day - they were so sweet I was just eating them out of the bag like sweeties!
Two ingredients I will be concentrating on this week are mushrooms and the pak choi.
Pak Choi - aka Chinese cabbage - is a staple green used in many Asian dishes so I am thinking simple stir fry with ginger and sesame like this tasty looking side dish (may add some chicken for a more substantial 'supper' dish)
Mushrooms are a bit trickier for me - I am not a huge fan of the texture of them when cooked so I generally cut 'em really small or make them into cream of mushroom soup.
Many years ago an Australian housemate of mine introduced me to the idea slicing really fresh ones raw into salad which I love to do. Maybe we'll try something different this week...
