CSA - Week 2

Hmm. Still no pictures.  Some day, I promise!

This week's box included:
1 bunch kale
1 bunch collard greens
1 bunch rainbow chard
1 bag salad mix
1 bunch bibb lettuce
1 bunch radishes
1 bunch salad turnips
1 bunch dill (which I switched out for more kale - who'd have thought I'd be doing that???)
1 bunch garlic whistles
1 pint (?) peas

We also picked up the following from the Bank Street Farmer's Market, where we pick up our box:
1 basket carrots
1 basket tomatoes
1 basket peas
1 bunch cilantro
3 zucchini
1 summer squash
1 loaf bread

And at Harding's we found fresh Otto's Chicken (you can buy it at the farmer's market frozen).

We still had the following left in the fridge:
Salad mix
Pac choi

We looked for local bbq sauce, but didn't find any.

So anyway, I can't remember this week as well, but here's a rough outline:

Saturday - Father's Day w/ the Davis family
Grilled Otto's Chicken thighs w/ yummy glaze
Salad w/ radishes, turnips, peas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, & cheese (and maybe some parsnips?)
Homemade Chocolate Cake w/ homemade vanilla rum custard and strawberries
(Yummy corn & bean salad provided by Ashley).

Sunday was our anniversary, plus father's day.  We had eggs for breakfast (w/ kale, garlic whistles, cheddar & ham) and then went out to dinner for our anniversary.  We tried to go to Food Dance, but they close early on Sundays.  :(

Monday we had salads w/ peas, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, radishes, turnips, cheese, etc.  (more eggs for breakfast)
Tuesday we had spicy chard & potstickers (CSA recipe) & more eggs for breakfast
Wednesday (tonight) the plan is steak on the grill w/ creamed kale & radish salad (more eggs for breakfast - today I did them w/ feta instead of cheddar)
Thursday we have friends in town, so we'll be going out.
Friday we have lots of options - shells & cheese w/ greens; steak & veggie stir fry; pasta w/ peas, asparagus, lettuce & ham; chard quesodillas w/ homemade salsa & chips.

I'm planning on cutting up and freezing some stir fry bags this week, and maybe making more pesto w/ the garlic whistles, because that was delicious last week!


  1. I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs:

  2. i have always thought people that were a part of CSA's were super cool : ) I want to join one some day.
