I don't feel too sad about being sick, though. My husband is bringing home pizza for us. Nice. He is also bringing home our farm box.
Getting the farm box is one of his favorite things to do. He likes to be the one to be able to make the trade. At each pick up site, the farm leaves a trade box with one item in it. You can take that item, if you would like to leave one of your items in the box. (Hence the name, trade box.) If we get strawberries in our farm share, Scott is committed to never taking them home (as they cannot compare to Wellpict berries). So, he nearly always has a trade to make. Because of this, we have had a lot of green onions lately. I am really hoping the trade item is not green onions this evening. I don't know what I will do if it is. Oh wait. No, I do know. I will make some of this Pistou. It is yummy & simple. It uses only a few ingredients, two of each we have in plenty during this season (e.i. dill weed & green onions). Plus, it is called Pistou. Who could resist a good Pistou?
We ate this on top of Salmon for our midday meal today. That was tasty. I mixed it into rice for the kids. They loved it. Peyton kept saying "mmmmmmmmmm" while he was eating. Gillian squealed, "There is grass in the rice? You picked grass for this, for me? Oh! I like it!"
It would probably go with potatoes, too. And other stuff.
recipe from Bon Appetit

1/3 C. finely chopped Green Onions

So, there's a recipe to throw in the recipe rodeo ring.
