We’re sharing a veggie box and a fruit box with another family. Last Friday, we opened the box to a pile of pea greens. And plenty of other things. Like asparagus.
I cooked a potentially great dinner for myself last night. Got home a bit late – husband and son ate before I left the office. I baked salmon in teriyaki, made some rice, and sauteed the pea greens. The rice came out perfectly, of course. I attribute the rest to low blood sugar and general grouchiness, enlivened by a dash of persistent fire alarms. The salmon was perfectly overdone. I could have packed it for camping. The taste was great though! Really! The pea greens were over-oiled (my stellar cooking technique) and tended towards toughness. Too bad, because they tasted pretty good.
The asparagus I tossed in the oven to roast when the salmon came out. Thinking ahead: Good eating for lunch sometime. When I went back in the kitchen with dirty dishes, my husband was putting the last few asparagus on his plate. I ate one, at considerable danger to myself. I won’t complain. He finished the salmon for his second dinner, so I didn’t have to throw it out.
It’s a good life!
