Here you'll find recipes & ramblings about keeping my family fed with what's available in Alaska between local produce, a little bit of wild harvest, and the modern grocery store.

Menu for the third April week

This week's CSA box is greatly anticipated, esp. since we went without one last week!

It contains Alaskan russet potatoes, carrots & onion, and from Outside:
Organic romaine lettuce, scallions, cremini mushrooms, radishes, celery root, Braeburn apples, Navel oranges, Asian pears

At Fred Meyer I found European-style WHITE asparagus on sale, and we treated ourselves to some steak from Mike's Meats.

Monday: BBQ steak, roasted potatoes, white asparagus w/ hollandaise sauce, salad (Comment: white asparagus was stringy -- family prefers green asparagus)

Tues: Mexican night: Tamales, black beans w/ chorizo, spanish rice

Wed: Boys eat out, girls eat left-overs (smoked turkey, etc)

Thurs: Baby lima bean soup, biscuits w/ cheese & parsley, salad

Friday: Mexican pizza w/black beans & chorizo spread, sweet peppers, onions, olives, cheeses

Saturday: Eat out -- Nature Center Auction!

Sunday: Xiao Ming salad, spicy brats, roasted potatoes, roasted celery root (Comment: I like the roasted celery root as a substitute for potatoes)

  1. Do you ever do the classic German spring dish of boiled potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, asparagus, cold ham and hollandaise sauce?
