The fresh ginger is something new. They had a nice blog post explaining how to use the ginger that was pretty interesting. I’ve never used fresh ginger before, just the dried out knobs you get in the grocery store. I can’t wait to give it a try.

Recipes this week:

Alsatian Pizza with Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad
Carrot Ginger Soup with Kale Salad
Gemelli with Kale Parsley Pesto
Herb Roasted Half Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Broccoli

The carrot soup sounds “intriguing”, according to my daughter. So we’ll definitely be trying that out. I like the sound of the Alsatian Pizza, it reminds me of the Zwiebelkuchen (onion pie) I had in Germany.
