World Cup in 2031

Roslyn was working on her kicking skills this morning with her ball. However, she kept over-aiming for the ball and missing. Not to be deterred, she started methodically planting one of her feet in front of her, bending over and 'placing' the ball on her toes, and then standing up and kicking it before it rolled away.

We're in Farmshare heaven again! Last week featured baby beet greens, with the little beets still attached! I sauteed them with jalapenos, garlic scapes (also CSA), and white wine vinegar. Mmmmmm.
I've also decided this may be the summer of the Risotto. To start us off, I tried this Fresh Herb Risotto from the New York Times last week with some of our young CSA arugula (or Rocket for you Midwestern farmers out there).
Oh, and some of the things we've eaten the last few weeks in our family dinner project:
Turkey Slammers with Potato Vinaigrette Salad
Asparagus, Snap Pea & Avocado Pasta
Shrimp, Tomato & Basil Pasta
Pan-Seared Salmon with Gingered Sugar Snap Peas
Say what you want about Martha, the food is yummy!
