So - this is week 2 of the CSA - it's a slow start up - but that's to be expected - it's still early in the season here in the north east.

This is the first time I'm doing the CSA thing. The farm is organic (yeah!).

So - for the past 2 weeks the take was
Herbs - oregano, thyme, anise, chives (there were others but I didn't take any)
Arugula
Leaf Lettuce
Strawberries

Last week I used the arugula in a pasta dish - very yummy - scallops, lemon, capers, thyme pasta. I'll post the recipe soon - it was from Williams-Sonoma cookbook.

This week I got more arugula - any ideas how to use it? It's very peppery - and I like it. I'll use some in salads and in place of lettuce in sandwiches. But what else? I have a half pound of it - and that's alot considering that it's leaves and they don't weigh alot.

Thanks in advance for the ideas/recipes.

Tess
