Blockheads 3 - Week 30

This week's Blockheads 3 block is courtesy of Sherri McConnell.  You can find the directions HERE.

Things here in Casa Simpson are good. I'm busy and healthy and I know how lucky I am to say that.  Thinking of you all - every day - that you are too.

What else is new?  There will be some new fabrics and photos to show you in the upcoming week, but nothing yet.   Oh, I know what else is new..... I'm wearing real clothes today. Not a house dress. Not a t-shirt and sweat pants - but real clothes.  Why? Because I felt sorry for the clothes in my closet that weren't getting any action at all. The t-shirts and sweatpants are getting a bit threadbare.  

My first CSA produce box will be picked up from the farm stand tomorrow.  I got an email today that I can expect basil, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, summer squash, green beans, blueberries, kale, and kohlrabi.  Kohlrabi.  Unless I can find some miraculous recipe that transform kohlrabi into something edible - someone close by might be gifted with it.

Kohlrabi is delicious eaten raw - just peel with a sharp knife, add a little salt, and chow down! I wish I could find it in the grocery stores.

Kohlrabi is my absolute favorite I just peel it and eat it raw. Your CSA box sounds so much better than the one I used to get . Looking forward to new fabric.

Hi Laurie, besides eating kohlrabi raw, they are delicious as well when cooked. Peel them, slice about 1 cm thick and those disces cut again into about 1 cm pieces. Throw them in boiling water ( add a pinch of salt)and cook for about 5-7 minutes, they should still be al dente. Strain them, add some butter, salt and pepper ( depending on your taste) and enjoy. Of cause they are also delicious with hollandaise sauce. Greetings from Mecki, stay healthy, all the best
