Ah, summer! I can’t get enough strawberries right now and the other night I had some with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. If I’m not making the ice cream myself, I recently discovered Alden’s organic vanilla ice cream at Whole Foods and it’s my favorite. If it goes on sale, I just have to buy it. Some store-bought vanilla ice creams are too sweet for me and Alden’s is pretty perfect. Just in case you were looking for a vanilla ice cream to try.
This week we received jericho romaine lettuce, russian kale, butter lettuce, asparagus, garlic scapes, strawberries and red baron spring onions.
This is the strawberry haul our CSA had at their farmers market stand. Funny story, I picked up my box that morning and couldn’t believe how much my car smelled like strawberries as I drove home. When I opened up my box, it was full of strawberries! I was tempted to just keep those gems to myself, but went back for my share and we all had a good laugh about it.
Continuing with my no-oven manifesto for summer, I wanted to try a grilled caesar salad and it turned out delicious! It’s easy and I recommend trying it for the 4th of July, if you’re still looking for recipes. Have a great weekend!
