First thing, I did this morning was check my e-mail. Every Tuesday I get a CSA e-mail on what would be in my box. I picked up my CSA box this morning at the market. There was lots of yummy items included. The farmer spoke with me a bit asking how things were going with my box. She said someone complained that there foods didn't last a day. I told her that I always prep my items that need to be prepped the evening I picked up my box. I said maybe the complainer is leaving everything out and not storing properly. I mentioned that I'm happy with everything. I also told her my husband and I have really been enjoying the items we are getting. I said we've been trying new things like the swiss chard because of the CSA box. I also said to her that I've made two different soups with it and they both turned out tasty and delicious. I thanked her for sending out the CSA
e-mails with recipes included too. It was a nice chat. I love knowing where my food is coming from.
The box was jam packed.
Here's the big picture of what's in the box.
-2 big turnips
2 large carrots
-bag of spinach
-2 greenhouse tomatoes
-4 small onions
-half dozen farm fresh eggs
-cilantro bunch (e-mail said basil but I def got cilantro)
I made a big salad for dinner using items from the CSA box.
-1 greenhouse tomato
-2 hard boiled eggs
This salad was fantastic. I'm thinking about doing this again tomorrow night for dinner too. My husband said yes. haha :)
