So I'm trying to clean out my freezer to prepare for another season of produce from our local CSA farm, as well as free range beef from a rancher and fish from a local CSS...

I have a lot of frozen cabbage, bok choy, kale, chard, spinach, broccoli and tomatillos. What would you do?

My plan this week is to make a huge macaroni and cheese with the broccoli and cauliflower and to use up the rest of the green beans for snacks, but I need to get this cleaned out by the end of May!

I entered your produce into the EatRealGood CSA meal planner and came up with a few ideas:

cabbage dish (crock pot)

broccoli dish <-- I made this a few nights ago and it was SO good

kale dish

spinach dish (throw in your chard too) just made this too, and it's wonderful! You can plain old leave out the beef if you want to.

bok choy dish (leave out the protein and use this as a side with another meal)

I would leave the tomatillos in the freezer, unless you get inundated with them each year. OR you could make a green salsa and make some burritos or something. The leftovers from that spinach/chard dish above would be ROCKIN' in a burrito with green salsa, in my opinion.

Hope that was all helpful!
