CSA Pics, Mint-alicious Week 5

This week at the CSA we got two heads of kohlrabi, one bunch of rainbow chard, one head of romaine lettuce, a bunch of kale, three garlic scapes, one bunch of scallions, two zucchini and two cukes. It looks like one English cuke and one traditional cuke. And finally a nice sized bunch of mint.

And how could I forget these little gems?????

Perfect red sweet cherries. These beauties were the reason Thing 2 didn't eat dinner last night. Oh well, at least it was cherries and not potato chips at 6pm.

The mint is the item that has me the most excited this week! A couple of years ago I would have smelled this mint and thought only of mojitos...mmm...mojitos. (What a lush!) But now the smell of freshly cut mint transports me back to Morocco where they simply pour boiling water over fresh mint and add sugar. Well, you don't need to add as much sugar as the Moroccans would, but I gotta admit that a little is great. There is something about sweet mint. Mmmm, you know what else would be good? Mint kefir ice cream. Now you're talking.
