I did some quick research on the vegetables of the cabbage family and found out that the proper family name is Brassicaceae (try to teach that one to a three year old). Cruciferea (the old family name) is apparently derived from a word that means cross-bearing (because the four petals of their flowers are reminiscent of a cross). So now I have to wonder, is it blasphemy to speak badly of the vegetables that grace my fridge?
Organic chicken noodle soup made with leeks, green garlic, carrots, celery and Rocky Jr. Chicken; organic orange segments (cut and reassembled they pack easily in a bandana or wrap-n-mat); organic coleslaw with asian style vinaigrette and crushed peanuts; homemade chocolate cookies. Organic cabbage, carrots, leeks, and green garlic all from Full Belly Farm, the orange is also from my CSA - not my tree- and come from Blue Heron Farm).
