When I opened my most recent CSA (community supported agriculture) box, an adapted version of the old Sesame Street song went through my head:
Each of these things is not like the others
Each of these things just doesn't belong...
Here's what I got: turnips, radishes (both with their greens), spinach, broccoli, garlic, squash, lettuce mix, a few raggedy tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, potatoes (just a few this week, not like last time), and onions.
As I stared at my vegetables, and they stared back at me, I felt dread creeping in. Would I have to make separate dishes for all these ingredients? Calm down, I told myself. Take a few deep breaths. Walk away.
