Today we got a basil plant with our share. I like to tear off a few leaves, tear them up, and add them to a salad.
This week we've got: Nicola potatoes, carrots, European greenhouse cucumber, pac choi, mesclun mix, 8 oz of Pete's onion puree, eggs, 1 pint Bonnieview ewe's feta, Champlain Orchards red delicious apples, and one basil plant.
I decided to use a lot of these ingredients in dinner tonight but it also had to be a quick dinner since I worked today. I decided to make the chickpea pancake again but this time add some potatoes and pac choi. I sauteed the potatoes for a bit, added the onions, then added the pac choi. I didn't use a lot of any of the vegetables, just enough to give it a bit of body. I also tossed in some fresh thyme from my yard although I can't say I could really taste it.
When it was done it looked like this:
I served it with a salad of greens with basil, pine nuts, cucumber, and feta cheese.
Three thumbs up! Sam finished it off even though right before dinner he ate a banana, an apple, and 1.5 slices of bread. I think both legs are hollow.
