It’s time to catch you up on my CSA experience. Before showing you the veggies we received for the last two weeks, I thougth I’d share how this change in our eating habits is working out. Everyone who was skeptical of joining a CSA said that they wanted to choose what produce they would have during the week. Not having a choice makes my life so much easier! There is no more sitting around trying to decide what to cook for the week. I have my ingredients picked out for me, and I only have to decide how to cook them and what protein to prepare. Also, there is a HUGE difference in freshness (lettuce that was over a week old was still perfectly fresh for book club yesterday), and there is nothing like chatting with the farmer who grows your food on a weekly basis. The woman who runs the CSA is wonderful and always gives us ideas of how to prepare vegetables that are not as well known to the general public.
- We also bought a dozen farm raised eggs this week. You haven’t tasted an egg yolk if you’ve only had store bought eggs.
- Bok Choy
- Lamb’s Quarters
- Lemon Balm
Here are some of the yummy treats I’ve made with our CSA vegetables. I’ll blog about them in detail soon.
