Valentine Romaine Lettuce
Bibb lettuce
Bright lights chard
Bok Choi
Garlic scapes
Early onions
Leaf lettuce mix

Last week was a very experimental, throw-it-together week.  We have a lot going on planning a 6 year old birthday party that we are doing all homemade.  Both of these main dishes were very easy to throw in a pan and cook quickly.  And both were delicious things that we will surely try again.  I found recipes and then changed them drastically to match what I had around the kitchen.

Meal 1 (chard, radishes, radish greens)
Spiced Vegetables and Salmon on Naan
Diced radishes
Chopped chard stems and leaves separately
Chopped radish greens
3 salmon filets
6 pieces of naan
Spices - I used a generous amount of garam masala and salt
Coconut oil
Cook salmon to taste separately (I actually cheated this time and used a pack of precooked salmon in oil that we keep on hand to throw in salads. I added this with the greens.)  Heat the coconut oil in frying pan at medium heat.  Add radishes and cook them until nearly done.  Add chard stems and cook for a few minutes.  Then add greens/leaves, spices and salmon.  

Meal 2 (bok choi, onions, garlic scapes)
"Chili" Stir Fry 
Bunch of bok choi, chopped
Bunch of early onions, diced
Garlic scapes, diced
Can of black beans
Vegetable oil
Chili powder
Add vegetable oil to frying pan on medium heat.  Add the bok choi, onions and garlic. Once onions are translucent, add beans and spices.  Cook till warmed.  Serve over rice.

Side Dish (romaine lettuce, bibb lettuce, leaf lettuce)
Shared as salad at family gathering with shredded carrots and bacon pieces on top.
