Summer is here in the CSA basket

Everything in this salad came from the farm

Yes, we now have tomatoes and cucumbers. The tomatoes are so delicious and flavorful.

This week, I bought extra strawberries, so that I could make a cobbler, and still have unbaked strawberries.

Later in the week, I made parfaits with strawberries and coconut cream.

This dessert looks fancy, but is simple. I tossed the cut strawberries with a bit of sugar, then roasted them for 10 minutes to bring out the syrupy juices. The coconut cream is from coconut milk that separated into coconut water and coconut cream. I whipped it with a bit of confectioners sugar, and I had some sweet coconut fluff. The next day, the extra coconut fluff was a bit firmer, which might have worked better for the parfaits.

It wasn't all salad and dessert this week.

I used the asparagus and basil in a chicken stir-fry. And I used the potatoes, peas, and kohlrabi in a cottage pie.

I roasted the kohlrabi with carrots. I tired some kohlrabi before adding them to the pie. I love the flavor and might not bury kohlrabi if I get more.
