I've been silent for a few weeks. No the liver detox did not wipe me out (Liver Onions and Divas), but a two week cold virus did. Plus Caleb got the bug and I've been in quarantine -- I mean cooped up in the house for 5 days straight!! Can you say stir crazy!
Well this post is all about sharing the Community Supported Agriculture love - aka CSA.
I joined one this fall and I am SO excited!!!!!!!!!!! First of all I will be saving approximately $500 over the next 7 weeks on my grocery bill. Second of all it's good to give back and keep small farmers alive. Did I say that everything is ORGANIC and FRESH????
So here is the bounty from the first week:
|Pumpkin, garlic, beets, tomatoes, sweet potatoes (white and orange), leek, spinach, chard, turnips, green leaf lettuce, cabbage (unknown variety), radish|
Here are some meals I started with:
|Yellow split pea soup with garlic and spinach|
Other items I made this week (not pictured) were:
- green juice with (kale, chard, dandelion greens, green apples, ginger and lime)
- salad with unknown cabbage, chard, kale, green apples, carrots, sprouts, dill, green onion (dressing: garlic, olive oil, salt, lime, honey)
- pasta using the CSA tomatoes and garlic
I'm just hoping we won't let any of this good food go to waste. Neighbors beware! We're gonna come a knocking if the bounty begins to overflow! :)
Any good turnip, radish and leek recipes out there???
Peace and blessings!
