Superfluous Yet Delicious

We Cook. We Eat. We laugh a lot.

CSA year 2, week 1

And we are back! We were terrible about posting over the winter, but now I have our weekly reminder to post, so expect lots of veggies and recipes.





This weeks haul included spinach, LOTS of arugula, 1 big tomato, Boston lettuce, turnips, and a head of broccoli.

We are skipping the fruit share this year because of last year’s peach overflow, but got strawberry and rhubarb as extras this week.


Must Try This!

Must Try This!

Nicole misses bread pudding. Like woah. If this is actually the right texture, it may become a new staple. I think it may have to wait until after Thanksgiving prep, though, our plates are pretty full at the moment. (See what I did there?)

Yummy November Share Chicken Dinner

I didn’t get a chance to take a photo of the first November share, but I will get a shot of the second one. I used almost entirely farmshare items for dinner last night:

Chicken rubbed with homemade sage salt from the summer share, baked sweet potatoes, Roasted farmshare garlic and shallots with chicken broth, and sautéed kale.


CSA Wrap Up: Weeks 15-19

Life got a little busy. Since we are picking up our first November share tonight, I carved out some time to post the last few summer shares

CSA Week 15

This is a little late, because Nicole had a migraine the night of the pickup, and Carl grabbed the veggies. We took a picture, but staring at screens is hard with light sensitivity, so Nicole hadn’t managed to get the photo of her phone. Well, with no more waiting, Here’s week 15:




Corn, Bok Choy, Radishes, Beets, Arugula, celeriac, garlic, apples, pears, peach jam.

Just So You Know…

We failed to take a photo, but the yellow watermelon from last week’s share was delicious when it took a bath with Mr. Vodka at a Labor Day Party. Our friends James and Clark helped us out, James the EMT by carving a threaded hole for the bottle, and Clark by carving out a place for the water to drain when we realized the vodka wasn’t moving.

Gearing Up for A New School Year

Nicole is always much more imaginative about packing lunches when school starts again.



There is salad under all that meat, we promise.

Poll Time

I know this will probably be a contentious subject, but I am curious. For those of you without grills, what is the optimal way to cook corn for corn on the cob? I am planning a southern fried chicken dinner with corn and mulling my cooking options.
