local veggies

On Saturday, I volunteered at a local farm stand; I had so much fun and I was generously reimbursed for my time with a half share of produce.
The most exciting items were local shiitake mushrooms and rhubarb! The mushrooms were really pretty and fresh, so I just lightly sauteed them in butter. Really a treat. I was a little nervous about the rhubarb because I tasted it raw (not so good), but I cooked it with strawberries and used this cobbler recipe; the rhubarb really just melts when it cooks and gives a delicious tart contrast to the strawberries.

I enjoyed the box of produce so much; I definitely suggest joining a co-op or CSA.
