March 21st: It's raining, a lot

Is everyone alive and dry? This storm really took my garden and me by surprise. All I could think about on Sunday was that thousands of people were running the L.A. marathon in this weather. Luckily, I went to the farmers market yesterday to pick up the citrus. Tonight I’m making kind of excessive rendition of an all American favorite: short-rib grilled cheese sandwiches. But the rest of this week, I’m going light and cooking off the yam on the top of my fridge in a storm-worthy pot of veggie soba noodles, which I'll post next. There are a ton of great vegetables in the boxes this week and soups and stews are a great way to use them up:

bunched yellow carrots
purple artichokes
snap peas
russian fingerling potatoes
golden beets
red kale
red chard
bloomsdale spinach
collard greens
red onions

oro blanco grapefruits

navel oranges

Happy Cooking,
