CSA Week Three and Four

July 25, 2013


Last week I went out of town. Luckily one of my wonderful neighbors was able to make the weekly pick-up, so I arrived home to find a fridge full of delicious veggies waiting for me. Week Three was slightly less abundant than usual, due to stretch of 90+ degree days, which tend to be hard […]

CSA Week Two

July 10, 2013


This week brought more delicious veggies, plus the first of many cabbages. I always struggle to use up cabbages… Some of the produce made it into breakfast this morning too. Spinach ended up in an omelet, and some fresh basil added an aromatic finish to balsamic drizzled apple slices.

CSA on the Run

September 13, 2012

Ingredients: 2/3 cup raw cashews 14-18 (depending on size) sun-dried or dehydrated tomatoes 1 clove raw garlic […]

Pasta with eggplant and tomatoes.

July 27, 2011


Tuesday morning’s CSA brought the usual mix of beautiful produce, including an eggplant, two tomatoes, and fresh basil.  Despite having more leftovers than I know what to do with right now, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use these fabulous ingredients while they were at their peak.  I don’t exactly measure much when […]
