Lots 'o Lettuce

The family we're splitting our farm share with doesn't cook with cabbage and is still making their way through the lettuce from last week. So they let us take all the cabbage and lettuce from this week's veggie box.

We now have a tremendous amount of lettuce in our fridge, and a monster head of cabbage.

Fortunately my book club is meeting this weekend, so I'll bring a big salad. I'll make Chinese noodles with the cabbage.

Also this weekend, a group of shareholders are touring the farm with Farmer Vicki. Hubby and I will be there with our daughters.

hey, here's a cabbage recipe if you want it. i got it from a friend who's a chef/caterer after i received a monster cabbage in OUR farm share. yummy!
Cabbage, apples and onions

1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 head large green cabbage, chopped
1 large apple, diced
Olive oil

1. Sauté onion in olive oil until translucent.
2. Add cabbage and apple. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until you see some browning.
3. Reduce heat; add about ¼ cup water, cover and cook until cabbage and apples are just tender.
4. Season with salt and pepper.

Great hot or cold!
