Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

More family recipes next week.  Today, I had a conundrum with this week's CSA box.  It contained a Kohlrabi.  My first thought was Kohl what?  My second thought was what do I do with it?  According to the website, kohlrabi is a German word.  Kohl means cabbage, Rabi means turnip.  It looks like a turnip, it grows on top of the ground and it has a broccoli/cucumber flavor.  Okay, so now I knew what it looked like, what to do with it?  As I peeled it, I noted that it had a cabbage like smell.  A small taste reflected that odor, so I tried making coleslaw with it and it turned out beautifully.  If you have two kohlrabi, double the apple and the carrot.  Do NOT double the dressing - you will have plenty.  To learn more about CSA's, To make the slaw:

1 kohlrabi (3 - 4 inches in diameter)
1/2 granny smith apple
1/2 cup sliced carrot
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbl lime juice.

Peel and Julienne the kohlrabi.  Julienne the apple.  Combine with carrots in a bowl.  In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, brown sugar and lime juice.  Pour over the kohlrabi mixture.
