CSA Adventures – Week 3

This week I’m linking up to the What’s In the Box? CSA party over at inherchucks.com. So when you get a chance, stop by and leave some love. πŸ™‚

Here’s the yummy goodness we got this week:

  • 2 heads of lettuce
  • 1 pint of sugar snap peas
  • 0.3 lbs of pea tendrils
  • 0.6 lbs of OWF salad mix
  • 0.8 lbs of spinach
  • 1 bunch ofΒ  beets
  • 1 bunch of garlic scapes
  • 1 bunch of swiss chard
  • 1 summer squash
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 kohlarobi

 

Last week was our first experience with chioggia beets, and they were delish! Last week I chopped the leaves off and discarded them…only to find out this week that you should eat those too. Oops! We’ve definitely been eating our weight in greens the past couple weeks – looks like I may need to get creative this week and cook up some of the greens instead of always eating them raw.

The sugar snap peas will be eaten raw (yum – my favorite!), the swiss chard will most likely be tossed in with pasta salad, and the kohlarobi was given away as a gift. Still trying to figure out what I’ll do with the squash/zucchini. Our grill is currently on the fritz, otherwise I’d grill these babies up! Maybe fixing the grill will be my weekend project – you know, when Monster is napping. πŸ˜‰

    • Yummy – can’t wait to try your muffin recipe. i wish that was the problem with our grill. We recently moved and we *think* either the internal workings of the adapater got damaged or the safety mechanism in the tank has sealed it off. Trying to figure it out in the most frugal way possible, but it looks like we’ll either need a new tank or new adapter to confirm. Things to remember for the next move! πŸ™‚

  1. Thanks for linking up! Everything looks lovely πŸ™‚

    This week’s party has some pretty awesome ideas for squash and zucchini…check them out for some killer inspiration!

  2. Love the pictures you posted. I might have to join this next year. The picture with Lucas and the sun pouring in is great.

    • Thanks! This is our first year with a CSA, so far we really like it. i figured the blog would be a good place to document our experience so i can easily review the bounty and decide if we want to do it again next year. πŸ™‚
