Farm share week 20

In this week's box:
  • Squash: 1.75 lbs
  • Sweet potatoes: 1.5 lbs
  • Daikon: 1 lb
  • Apples: 2 lbs
  • Potatoes: 0.75 lb
  • Bok choi: 1 lb
  • Kale: 0.75 lb
  • Lettuce: 0.75 lb
  • Arugula: 0.5 lb
  • Onions: 1 lb
  • Green pepper: 0.25 lb
This week's squash is Kabocha, according to the newsletter (PDF). I made a curry out of one of the butternut squashes this week; neither of us really liked it, though -- Carl because it was too squashy, me because it didn't have enough flavor or variety (it was just a lot of squash, with some tofu).  If I make it again, I think I would halve the amount of squash and add potatoes or something else to give it some variety (I did add some broccoli, though).  And the amount of red curry paste called for in the recipe is woefully inadequate, even for me, who orders everything "mild" at Indian restaurants.

Interesting to get a piece of daikon radish before (that's the white thing in the bag on the left).  I've seen them whole before in Asian grocery stores, but not sure if I've ever eaten daikon before. And really happy to get sweet potatoes -- those are basically a staple of my diet, but I haven't been buying them in the store since we have so many white potatoes to get through. It'll be good to have sweet potatoes back in the mix again.
