How's It Going?: Lettuce Edition

Hey, we’ve got all the way to Wednesday! Welcome back to our daily open thread.

My CSA this week is mostly lettuce, including a big head of iceberg lettuce. I’m not a big lettuce fan—is anyone?—and I’m struggling to figure out what to do with them all. I’m a bit intrigued by Helen Rosner’s (stay with me here) iceberg lettuce soup with pickled iceberg lettuce hearts, but everyone I’ve mentioned it to is like “dude, no,” so now my resolve is wavering. I mean, worst case scenario I make something weird and just end up with no dinner, but also less lettuce, so the risk is pretty low.


In other news, while writing this blog I found out they’ve cancelled the New York Marathon, which was supposed to be my first-ever marathon. I’m sad but also relieved—you might remember I was stressing out about what to do about it, and I’m glad to have an answer before I had to start training in earnest. Hopefully I get a chance to run it in the future!

What a day, readers! How’s it going?



My farmshare today is supposed to be romaine, napa cabbage, red kale, garlic scapes, beets w/greens, scallions, mixed baby leaf lettuces, yellow squash, zucchini, and basil.  I’m planning on making the napa cabbage, scallions and garlic scapes into kimchi.
